A Chick rules this Roost! (temporarily!)

I just LOVE this craft stamp from Stamps Happen by the amazing artist Tara Reed!  It’s so perfect for a few of my friends whose husbands are either deployed or in transit and not home at the present time.   Sometimes, it helps to add some humor to a very difficult situation.  How perfect is this craft stamp?!!
A Chick rules!

  1. You should see me smiling right now girlfriend!! I LOVE this!!!!

  2. Thank you for sharing – I love seeing how creatively people use my stamp designs! I hope it helps brighten your friend’s day during what is a difficult time. My sister’s husband was in the Marine’s and deployed years ago – I remember how hard that was and it was during peace time, so nothing like it must be today.

    My best thoughts going out to everyone – keep your positive and creative attitude!

  7. Great job on this one, Mary. I almost chose this one. Now that I see how you’re using the sentiment, I’m going to have to get this one. How perfect for such situations. I’m sure having fun with my stamps from Janlynn and have another one almost done. Have a wonderful week-end!
