Simple Pleasures - FSC - Snippet

Hello Friends

I was sat in my room the other day (when it wasn't quite soooo c-c-c-cold in there) playing with my new Artistic Outpost stamps and a lickle idea formed in my head.  Hope you like it......

Over at FSC the current challenge is Trains, Planes and Automobiles (any transport) so I shall be linking this lickle bit of silliness over there.  The card itself has gone in the post to my Cousin as I wanted to make her smile.  One of my feathered chooks is named after Tracey and another is Hettie and they are the mischief makers of the troop!!  

The green foilage stamp is another freebie from Craft Stamper and I added some drawing of grass with a Copic pen.  The chook stamps are Artemio and the green card was out of my Snippet box. I used Archival inks in Cobalt, Black and Vermillion.  The bike was embossed with embossing powder and then coloured using Copics.  A little faux stitching around the edge and hey presto a card for Tracey.  Not sure when it will get there with this weather holding the country up though!

Thanks for calling by.

Oh, love the wiggly worms on the grass, they are just what those clever chooks need after all of that cycling!

I'm sure your cousin will be made up when she receives your card. Happy post is ALWAYS nice to receive :)
