I am fairly new to the SCS Community but this week I decided to try to do all of the challenges and post them in my tiny little gallery! I really didn't think anyone outside of my little circle of stamping friends would notice BUT...NOT SO! I have been graciously welcomed by so many people and one of those ladies was Marie! She left me a couple of very sweet and encouraging comments in my gallery so when I saw that she had actually been named Queen for the Day, I was really excited and wanted to do something a little special for her! I have to admit, when I first saw the announcement, I didn't know exactly what that meant, but I recognized Marie's screen name so I did a little research. I loved looking through her gallery and my eye was caught by a really pretty black and white orchid card. I wanted to do something along that line, but also have some fun with it.....so, here it is, my tribute to Marie....Queen for the Day! I think I speak for all of us when I say this is a well deserved honor! Congratulations, Marie!

What a wonderful card design .... the Best of Cluck stamp set is a favorite of mine and I love how you've used it with the chicken wire background. Great work!!

Katie this is awesome!! You, my (new!) friend are one rockin' stamper! Don't take my word for it, though...listen to the very talented ladies who commented before me :) Love the layout, the cute creativity of that striped egg, crown & all of the chickens, and that drop-dead gorgeous bow. Thank you so much Sweetie for CASEing one of my cards...keep up this amazing work. Big Hugz!
