Two-Fer #4: Pets


There's a Two-Fer Challenge going on now, with the prompt: Pets. 


Among my 'pets' are egg laying chickens I've raised from 2 day old chicks.
They lived in my laundry room for 2 months, warm and snug, until they were able to
live outdoors in a chicken coop my husband and son built.


My babies at 3 weeks.

I created 2 cards with a favorite Ai stamp called Spring Chicken



O Frap. A perfect sentiment when a birthday is forgotten, don't you think? 
Miss Henny Penny is copic colored in pinks to show her frustration at forgetting
an important event. Plaid paper: Lawn Fawn.
Circle frame die: Poppystamps
Roses and bowl of eggs: Carta Bella: Country Kitchen


My 2nd card is the same stamp from Ai's Spring Chicken, this time colored with E-copics,
very much the color of my chickens. And it becomes a Mother's Day card, by masking
the sentiment on the cup, and adding a heart.
Ai: Bird Brains chicken wire stamp
PTI: Stitch in Time Borders.

A Two-Fer!

Play along for a few more days on Darnell's blog:

  1. So fun, Nancy, both your real-life chicks and your cards! I hope you will continue to share photos of your awesome girls as they get older! I recently got this AI set, too, so thank you for the inspiration! Henny Penny looks brilliant in her natural color against that chicken wire background and blushing red on the belated birthday card! Two fantastic designs!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #4! Hugs, Darnell
