It's Chicken Girl Designs New Release Day!!!

Man, o-man, o-man have I been dying for this day to arrive so I can share the Chicken Girl June collection with you!! I just about squealed with delight when I saw this new crop of digi stamps. Check em' out. They're just the cutest!!
World's Greatest Dad, Sending Some Love, New Home, Sizzling Good Time.

Instantly, I knew what I wanted to make when I saw these, but this isn't it! HA!! I have something in the works for another card but I decided to hold off because I REALLY wanted to make a Father's Day card. I only have 2 made and I need a third and Father's Day is RIGHT around the corner and I couldn't resist this fantastic image! So here's what I did...(not sure why my card uploaded so small, but you can click on it to see a larger version if you like)

I printed out my World's Greatest Dad image and colored it with a lot of my new Copic markers which I just picked up from I {Heart} Papers! Yay, they sell Copics AND Chicken Girl Designs stamps! LOVE!
I colored my image to match this stripe-y/plaid paper from Cosmo Cricket which I thought was good for a masculine card. I decided to paper piece Dad's shirt to match my paper. I love peicing digi images. Even if you only have a scrap of paper to use, you can tape it to an 8.5 x 11 piece and run that through your printer by just puting the image on the screen where it should print.
I let the image shape determine the shape of my card and went with a tall card which I don't do often enough at all! And I just added in some coordinating borders and paper piercing to really make the image center stage and keep it manly! Isn't this a fantastic image for Father's Day? It was soo fun to color too!

Chicken Girl Designs are exclusively available at I {Heart} Papers. Please visit Kate's fabulous store to pick up your favorites from the June collection or buy them all at a reduced bundled price! And check out the selection of Copic markers and refills while you're there!
