Getting Old is for the Birds!

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Bonnie Sharp our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.

It is National Poultry Day - a day that is close to my heart since we had egg layers for over 40 years!  My challenge is to create a chicken card - of course if you don’t have a chicken stamp, you can certainly use any type of fowl - cardinal, robin, flamingo - something with feathers!

I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Cupcake Pop-up Card die set ... I love how versatile this die is and how it can be used to pop up larger images.

To decorate my card I used some chicken themed stamps from Rubbernecker which I have had for years and never used. It always feels good when you finally get around to using some older stamps.

Here is a side on view of the inside of my card. To add to the "barn yard" scene I added clouds, a sun, a fence and grass using dies. 

For the front of the card I stamped the chicken feet prints all over the background and added another rooster. 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
