{ippity} "Chicks" for Real!!

Top of the morning to you! Most likely by the time you read this I will have been out the door and probably at work for sometime. I hope that you have had some time in your day to enjoy the wonderful creations by those who enjoy {ippity} stamps. Today, I used two sets (listed below) for my card. I wanted to keep it simple and hope that I achieved that through my design.

I would like to extend another heartfelt thank you to all of the wonderful folks who stopped by my blog on Friday to leave encouraging comments. It truly lifted my spirits!

Scroll down below this card to see the new fluffy additions to our family!! This {ippity} chick now has some real chicks to show off!

Our new baby chicks!
Our nephew is starting a 4-H project raising chickens. My brother-in-law ordered 15 chicks (the farm sent 16!) for the project, which was many more than they needed. So, Mitch decided that fresh eggs wouldn't be such a bad idea and took a few chicks off of his hands. Liam is very excited to have the "baby chicks" at our house. Mitch is equally thrilled by the acquisition, because he and his family raised chickens when he was growing up and now he can share this experience with our son. :)

They will be in the basement staying nice and warm under their heat lamp until they are ready to be moved to the chicken coop outside.
