Just Chicken In!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are having a GREAT Wednesday!  This week has been going by sooo fast.  Monday and Tuesday I thought I was coming down with something so I took it easy but I feel great today.  So glad it wasn't the awful flu going around.  

I started reading Book 3 of the Matched trilogy.  Not sure if I am liking it or not.  Too many different story lines.  Have any of you read Matched or Crossed yet?  I enjoyed the first two books really well.  It's just this last one.  I feel like the author is trying to put EVERYTHING in at once and wrap it up but there are a lot of different ideas going on at once.  I am not a writer so I'm sure that it's super hard to wrap up a trilogy.  What are your thoughts?

I pulled out an old Stampin' Up! stamp set and made this quick card.  I used the Promarkers to color the chicken in and My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing paper.  I am trying to stock up on everyday occasion cards that are ready at my fingertips.

I was wanting to learn more about this series! Apparently it was written by someone that lives in the same little town that I do!

I haven't read those books but love it when people discuss books and give opinions so that I sort of know what to expect when I get to read.

Love the card...so cute...the sentiment made me laugh.

Hi Robyn,

I haven't heard of those books. I am reading the Hunger Games right now. I saw the movie. I am only on the first book. I usually like to read the books before I see the movies. Your card is so pretty, that chicken is adorable.

I love that stamp set. I need to get it inky. Thanks for the inspiration. I have not read those books. I am finishing the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. It is a good read.

Bobby said...

I have read all 3of these , follow the author on twitter and I can say..I'm not feeling the 3rd one like I did with the others. However I will say. I Love Love Love Divergent and Insurgent.... Much like a The Hunger Games in that it is set in a "future" sense.. but a whole different spin. I am excited to see where this goes and what the Author has in store. Oh yes and I'm Lovin' the chicken stamp .... and great family photos ...
