What the Cluck?

5/1/20 Winner at Crafty Catz!
5/3/20 Favorite at The Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge!

Hi everyone! I had a couple hours to myself this afternoon in my studio so I created a few more cards for The Outlawz Challenges. This fun card is for the Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge and the piece of the rhyme I focused on was “9, 10 A Big Fat Hen!” Sherry West Art is our sponsor this month and I snipped the chicken from her Hoppy Easter digital image set to use for a new baby card.


A big fat hen it is – and how stinkin’ cute is she?! I colored the image in yellow, orange and red, cut it with a stitched circle die and added some white paint pen lines to add to the whimsical character. I used yellow and white dotted cardstock along with a thin strip of black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using a fun stamp set in my stash, and finished the front with a few small yellow sequins.


I embellished the inside with the same yellow and white dotted cardstock and thin strip of black cardstock used on the front. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.


And one more peek… I sure am smitten with this chicken, lol! SO cute! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
