Which came first...the chicken or the egg?


Hi!  Welcome to the Joy's Life February blog hop!

I created a crazy card:

My punny sentiment is from "Yummy Puns":


 Our challenge: 3D Animals and Card Folds.

My chick is a 3D action wobble and the
cracked egg is a different sort of card fold:

Here is the action wobble in action:

Last week our basement flooded.  I lost some paper crafting magazines, 12x12 papers, and 12x12 collections (all older stash) that is drying out.  I plan to cut the papers that I can salvage parts of.  Before I start trying to clean basement stash and move it into my craft room as I sort/cut/salvage, I have been purging my craft room and getting it in perfect order...I can't work in chaos.

I love to organize, and it has been fun going through every shelf and drawer in my craft room and being reminded of some wonderful items.  Like this action wobble!  A blog friend sent me several last summer and they were buried under piles of stuff on my desk.  And all of the papers for today's project came from various Artful Delight kits from 2011 and 2012 :)  

Isn't it fun to create a unique card from bits and pieces?

Thank you for hopping by!

Your next stop on the hop:

*and the answer to my post title:  the egg.
1.  I cut the cracked egg from my Cricut "Create a Critter" cartridge @ 3 1/4".  I used temporary adhesive and glued the two pieces, spacing apart.  This became my guide to hand cut the rough oval shape of the card.
2.  I cut two small banners and scored three lines in the middle 1/8" apart.  I glued one to the top and one to the bottom of my rough oval.
3.  I covered the base (from step 1) with patterned paper.  I glued the other half of each banner to the cracked egg pieces, then covered the egg pieces with patterned paper.  The chicken came last : )  She was cut at the same size and from the same Cricut cartridge.

Super cute! Love all the elements. :)
I am sorry to hear about your basement, I hope your loss is minimal. But, the silver lining is, like you mentioned, getting to go through all your stuff again and reorganize. Finding great things we forgot about is almost like Christmas!! LOL!
Hugs,
