Chickens!

I've recently taken over making the cards for the choir, and B's birthday is on Sunday. She and her husband keep chickens. We give them our used egg-boxes, and every so often she returns one with fresh, free-range, family pet eggs inside. A perfect barter, except that I think we get the better deal!

I found this adorable image on The Digi Street, and teamed with my new Bo Bunny Apple Cider papers, it made the cutest card I've seen for a while. Sketch Saturday's sketch and Simon Says Stamp's leaves challenge made a perfect combination. Cute Card Thursday's challenge of "scary" seems to fit too - this poor chook looks pretty scared.

Haaaaaaaaaahahahaha, I love this hun! What a great card, the autumnal paper is gorgeous (love the colours in that) and who could resist such a fab chuck!! The little "eggs" down the side are the perfect finishing touch. Brilliant my friend, just brilliant. Hugs, Glad-that-it's-the-end-of-a-very-long-week-Squirrel xxxxx

LOVE THE CARD RED SQUIRREL. SAW ANOTHER CARD IN THE SCRAPJAZZ GALLERY FOR CHALLENGE 8/2012 THAT I JUST LOVE. ITS A CHRISTMAS CARD WITH 3 CATS. YOU ALSO HAVE ANOTHER ONE RIGHT THAT'S A BIRTHDAY CARD NEXT TO IT. WOULD YOU CHECK IT OUT AND LET ME KNOW WHAT STAMP YOU USED AND HOW I CAN GET IT? WAITING TO HEAR. MEBCRAFT

Hi MEBCRAFT,
I don't have any way of contacting you or knowing which country you're in, but in case you drop by my blog again, the stamp is called "A Purrfect Day" by Personal Impressions. It is a rubber stamp on a wooden mount. I bought it at a craft shop in the UK in 2009.
If you need any more info, please leave me your contact details and I'll try to help.
