Critters and or Chickens


I am down to the wire but wanted to be sure to play along over at the Twofer Challenge.  I love this challenge and do everything in my power to play along when I can. The word Darnell has for us this month is Critters.  That leaves it wide open, as the definition is “any living creature”, hence my above chickens.  It was nice creating after dinner last night after a long Monday at work. Stamping is not something I do a lot during the week, but it was very relaxing last night and maybe I should try it more often. It helped that hubby made dinner too.

I should have left well enough alone, but unfortunately decided to outline the hey chick in brown.  Looks terrible. 😦 Such is life! 

The first card is for a good friend of mine that is need of a pick me up. I am the tall chicken In the back, as she is not even 5 feet tall. LOL The second card is a Birthday card with the sentiment on the inside.

Have a great day! Nanc’

Card details: 2-Stampin up stamp sets, EF is also SU, Dies are a mix of Sizzix, MFT and SU. Copic markers and colored pencil, and the button is from MFT. The inspiration came from this card.

  1. Your two designs show off those fun chickens nicely and are sure to bring a smile to the recipient. Your landscape card looks like they are all about to start the can-can dance in a line. I’m liking the colors on your “blue” chicken. Make it pop off the card. Thanks for joining in at Twofer Card Challenge #20.

  2. Wow! You certainly rocked this challenge. I love the chicken designs you did.

  3. I love those fancy chickens on parade and strutting their stuff. Super cute cards!

  4. How fun it must have been coloring those fat super stylish chicks, Nance’! Great masking on the first design and I love how you added that moppet-haired photo bomber, lol, and how you angled your textured panel! And your solo chick is strutting her stuff in the center scalloped stage! I love the floorboards and little egg on the oval sediment. I had to really look around for the brown outlining that went awry … I never would have noticed it with all the colorful textured elements on your pretty design! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #20! Hugs, Darnell

  5. p.s. Now that I look again, I see that is a gate, not a floor! Slap! As a former Midwesterner, I should have known that!!

  6. That sounds like a fun evening, Nancy … dinner made for you and card making … lovely! You sure came up with a couple of cuties here that are certain to raise a smile! That first encouragement card is a riot … great masking and colouring on the hens … and what a fabulous background ‘interloper’ … a brilliant scene! Delicious colours on the farm gate hen on your birthday card … and what a fabulous addition the little leggy egg is … great humour with the hey chick sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer … and for your lovely visit and sweet words! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  7. Yes, that chick is so you, Nancy. Tall and thin and lovely. What fun both of these cards are and beautifully colored. I’m glad it made for a relaxing night for you.

  8. I love your chickens! Colorful and fun, including the card designs, and I don’t think the brown looks terrible. It seems to fit with the rest of the card. You got your second wind once you started and, yes, it sure helps when hubby makes dinner. The tall chick (you) in the back of the group is stylin’ with her mop of hair. Love the barn yard background on #2. Must remember that idea. I’m so glad you were able to fit these cards into our Twofer challenge so we could all enjoy them. Thanks!

  9. OMGosh your story about the tall chicken in the back cracked me up, as did his/her “do”! I would feel 100% had this been sent to me! Both are so adorable!
