Our Dear Friend, Barb.. who has been lovingly deemed our Mother Clucker will have a Birthday on the 21st of July. I sent this tin and card to her so she would have it in time for her Bday...
when I saw those 5.oo cards at Walmart that "play Music" ----I thought they were cool. Then I saw one on it with a chicken.. holding an accordian... when I opened it up.. I heard the "Chicken Dance" song-- -I KNEW it had Barb written all over it.
I took the card home... and cut out the chicken.. and ever so carefully removed the piece that controlled the sound... and moved it to a Target Mailbox-- so when you opened the lid... it played.. and when you closed the lid it stopped. I put the Standing chicken holding the accordian inside the door to greet Barb when she opens it. I hope it made it in one piece to her in this heat.. AND that it still "plays" when she opens it!!
Thanks for looking!
Happy Birthday -- MC Barb!!!!!
PS.. my family was soooo glad to see that thing packed up and GONE.... they were sooo tired of hearing the Chicken Dance song!!! It's a wonder I didn't wear out those hinges!! LOL

McStamper's DD checking in! Wow! What a totally, TOTALLY fantastic gift. It's good to know she's got such wonderful friends, who care about her enough to do something as creative as this. (Still trying to wrap my brain around my Mom's nickname being Mother Clucker though....)
