Chicken card

Hi friends, I hope all is well in your world.
Yes it's Saturday yet again and so I have
my usual 'Less is More' card to share
with you.

It's a recipe this time and......


The lovely 'Queen of CAS' Chrissie's our 
glorious leader over at 'LIM' is celebrating a big
 birthday this weekend. (Ssshh .....70.......I know
 ...I know....I don't believe it either!!!) So anyway
 it's Snippets for Chrissie. 
Happy Birthday Chrissie!!

Hmm...... I pondered and pondered,  hunted
around in my 'snippets' pots......ahem...I have 
so many a few around. 
Then I saw this cute little  chicken die which
had been cut out and left to fend for itself.
I know Chrissie loves chickens so.... now I
 had a plan.
 I coloured it with some distress inks. Then I
looked through my box of snippets....yes I 
have pots AND boxes of them! Anyway I 
spied a few printed sentiments. 
I cut one out using a wavy die on both sides.
I used a bit of distress inking on the embossed
 chicken bits.I embossed  the sentiment too.

 I added a small star painted to  match the
 sentiment and job done.Chrissie is a star after all
isn't she ;)

Hmm does that chicken look as if it is heading
back up to the chicken coop ?.......I think so ;) 

ps. Have a lovely weekend, we went to see our
new granddaughter yesterday and we are 
babysitting  her tomorrow too. Our grandson is
 off to a party with his parents! 

Pleased to report that Amelia now smiles at me
 instead of just a puzzled look and a frown lol.
She has a middle name now too Amelia Ai-Mei.
 Ai-Mei is pronounced I-Mae, Ai means
 'Love' and Mei means 'Beautiful'. Her lovely
Taiwanese mummy chose her second name.
Mummies name means 'beautiful flower'
......isn't that so lovely ;)

Right enough rambling, come and have a  closer
look at my card.....

Wow, this is perfect for Chrissie, Viv. You know her so well :) There's something very satisying about using up scraps isn't there? Why don't we do it more often? I could make a whole box of cards just using up snippets!
Thanks for sharing with us
