Here is a little card I made to go with a present for a cyber friend of mine - Sandra of STAMPING FOR PLEASURE :-)
Now this lady used to have a couple of chickens that were regular posts on her Blog - getting up to their antics in her garden. :-) She doesn't do that Blog any more but I thought she might like a little flock for indoors :-D Would you believe it though .... I forgot to photograph the 'Girls' before I posted them, so here's hoping Sarn can take a pikky of them so I can put it on here.
*** Well - Sarn took me a pikkie of the Chooks at their new home... so here they are ......
Anyhoo, I made this little card to go with them using STAMPIN' UP products. I have had this little set for a while now but couldn't decide what on earth to make with them. This is what I came up with - I followed a design I had seen elsewhere, but used different colours and papers, and somehow it doesn't seem as good as the one I followed !!! How does that figure ????? Maybe I should just stick to the Dark stuff :-D LoL
Sarn is a SU demonstrator, so I am sure she will be able to point out what I haven't quite got right with this one :-)

The chookies are so cute - and I love the green in your card - and there is no such thing as "getting it wrong" on a lovingly hand crafted creation - it looks perfect to me... MxxReplyDelete
There is nothing wrong w/ your card, it's quite fetching! Love how you did the bird. I personally love that bird punch and stamps from Stampin' Up! But most of all I love your chickens!! They are too adorable. I recently acquired some chickens, we have a coop and everything. They are quite funny things. And who ever said chickens are dumb is stupid, cuz they are quite smart creatures! Love your card and Chicken critters and I bet your friend does too!
