Here for you Hen

Hello crafting pals!

I was just making a little Easter card today when another stamp jumped out at me and I got a bit distracted - I know that you will be surprised to hear that this is possible ;) Come and see:


The stamp I'm using is from Hen Pecked by Artistry Inc who sadly stopped trading almost before they got going. It's a massive A4 set full of hens. chicks and other useful bits and pieces and I love it and would have bought everything else they came up with. *sighs*


I stamped the two hens image onto an off cut of white card stock, coloured it with alcohol markers, cut it out with a large circle punch and added a quick sponging of blue distress ink. This was placed onto a white card panel and cut out with a Heffy Doodles stitched rectangle die - can you see how the edge of the circle has been cut off and now it looks as if the circle has been stitched onto the panel.


Before attaching the panel to the card base, I stamped this supportive sentiment from the same stamp set in a bright positive red.

CHALLENGES
Both Just Us Girls and Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge have chosen Feathers as their theme for this week, so I'm linking this card up there. I don't have any actual feather images but am looking for a good stamp set featuring them, so this will be a great challenge to keep my eye on!

AND IN OTHER NEWS
While I'm busy in the house, Eva will usually come and lie down wherever I am. She likes to know where I am just in case I suddenly make a dash for it and go for a walk without her! Sometimes though, she'll wander off, tail gently waving, and go foraging upstairs. Today, she appeared from one of her adventures with a sock in her mouth, and trotted busily outside with it.

Me: What have you got there Eva?
Eva: It's a sock and it's mine!


Me: Have you got a sock Eva?
Eva: It's mine! You're not having it!


Me, mock sternly: Eva...!
Eva: WOT!!!


Hope you are staying safe and well.

Hugs,

    1. I do love hens - they're such cute, gossipy little ladies aren't they! Eva IS easily pleased. I always think that whoever coined the phrase 'it's a dogs' life' must have been thinking particularly of her!
