What the Cluck

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As the challenge hostess for the month I continue to issue the challenges.

Saturday is Poultry Day. So let's be inspired by Poultry when creating our cards this week… Chickens; Ducks; Turkeys; Geese; Emus; Ostriches etc or Eggs. As Easter is just over a week away, you could create an Easter card but this is optional. Bonus points if you  include Green on your card to celebrate St Patricks Day which is today.

For my card this week I decided to create an accordion card using the Oval Accordion Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I pulled out my Chicken stamp sets from Paper Pretties to decorate my card ... love all the fun sentiments in this set.

I used the speech bubble from the Rectangle Accordion for the sentiment on the left hand panel and also the front of my card. I also used the Corners 1 die set to decorate some of the corners.

I was so busy making the card and trying to keep my new dog happy as it was wanting my attention, that I forgot to add green to my card ..... oops! Guess I don't get bonus points! :)

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Your red and yellow papers are perfect for this delightful birthday bird! Such a fun birthday design for people of "our" age! Ha!
