Tour de Chook II - Birthday Cards

Hello There!

Wow another weekend is coming to a close and it is back to work tomorrow.  I am sure they are getting quicker these days.  I hear a little birdie earlier telling me there is only 4 Fridays left until Christmas!  Don't worry I shot it!  We cannot have birdies spreading vicious little rumours like that now can we?

Rightio.  On to today's post.  A friend of mine who I made a Chikkin card earlier this year asked me to make some more for her as she liked them so much so here there are....

A mixture of papers used, most of which were from the Snippets drawer.  I used some leftover from my Mum's Album K&Co on the top card.  The embossed white card was leftover from some cards I made earlier in the year.  I do love this Penny Black stamp which I colour in with my Copics.

These papers I printed on my Silhouette for another project and these bits were waiting in the drawer.  

The Happy Birthday stamp is Hero Arts and the Banner and Flags are Stampin Up.  The Border punch is EK Success.  I hate to think how old the brads are - VOS indeed.

Right then, I am off over to the Snippets Playground to see what everyone has been up to this weekend, if anyone is still up that is.

Have a great week and thanks for calling by.

Too cute - what a delicious image (definitely made for you!), and beautifully coloured with those vivid red combs and glowing orange beaks. Like both the colour-ways, and the little banners are lovely in the top corners.

Only just getting back up to speed - thanks to work schedules, and two very indulgent crafty workshop weekends since I got back. Will catch up with some more very soon!

Hi Hettie, Just saw this darling card highlited at the Playground, and when I saw the chickens, I knew it was yours even before I saw the name! It is just such a fun image, and beautifully colored too. Love the pretty papers and those tiny little banners. I'm sure your friend was delighted to have you make it especially for her request. Take care. TFS & Big hugs. Sorry I've been MIA for a while.
