UHC # 12

For today's Under-Appreciated Holiday, we'll celebrate National Dance Like A Chicken Day, which is observed every year on May 14th. I do not have a lot of chicken stamps, but I do have a LOT of duck stamps, so that's what I decided to use. After all, this is an inspiration challenge, right? Right! To validate my decision to use ducks instead of chickens (as if I need to validate anything I do on my own blog with my own made-up challenge), I just read this little tidbit on the link above:

"We did uncover the origin of the Chicken Dance song. It was originally titled "Der Ententanz" (The Duck Dance). "

It's Kismet, I tell you!

So here you go - my dancing ducks card. All images are by Rosie's Roadshow. The papers are from my Basic Grey Mellow 6x6 pack.

I actually cut out the white oval first, then arranged all the ducks so they fit onto the oval. To give the ducks a little dimension, I stamped them onto the oval and also onto scraps. I outlined each of the stamped duck images with my C-1 Copic, then I cut out the scrap bodies and glued them onto the stamped bodies. I drew those little floating notes with my Sahara Sand marker.

That's it! Now go and dance like a chicken! I dare you! :-)


  1. I love your duck card! Great papers, great stamp great sentiment :)

  2. Not only do I NOT have a chicken stamp, I don't have a duck stamp either! Clearly I am in serious need of more stamps...LOL! I do, however, have lots of birdie stamps and will try to make something with one of those.
    There really are some very odd holidays out there...


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
