A crow and a chicken

It's been a dreary old damp day again ... our weather is completely up the left at the minute!  Snowy showers yesterday, rain and storms due again this week and then a colder snap towards the end of the week.  Not a bit of wonder half the country has the sniffles!  Good crafting weather though ;)

If you'd asked me a while back if I wanted a crow stamp, I would probably have said No.  But then again, I never knew that a crow could be so charismatic!  I love the slightly quizzical expression ... I'd love to know how Holly can draw such fab images with just a few strokes of a pen!

Watercoloured BG;  weather die cuts from Lawn Fawn; Simon Says Stamp birthday die (cut using black funky foam).  Bling from stash.
My second card uses this fun farmyard set from My Favourite Things.  I popped my little chicken and nest up on dimensionals, and paper pieced the nest as I didn't have a pencil to match the yellow DP.

  1. Love these feathery fun cards Lynne, such a great scene with the crow and the chick cArd is fabulous and very welcome at AYLI...good luck xx

  2. your sweet Ruby popping up there at the top of your blog :-) Your card is adorable, as always, my friend! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Two great cards, Lynne! For some odd reason we have quite a few crows who come and go from our garden. I find their antics hilarious, although I doubt if the smaller birds enjoy having them around, Jo x

  4. I especially like your little chick card. Too cute!

  5. Both cards are fab! You're right about that crow. He's pretty awesome. I like your chicken, too. It's funny how little stamps like these can really be perfect for so many cards. They add the perfect bit of whimsy.

  6. Thanks for joining us at CTS! I love your watercolored background and who knew that a crow could be such a standout!
