Chicken Run and Chickens

I have two birtrhday cards to share today-our grandson Noah was 1yrs old on the 11th April(Card to follow)and also Grandaughter Holly was 8yrs old the same day and asked for chickens for her birthday-which I might add are living at Grandmas lol so we have three new additions to our 2cats,2dogs,2bearded dragons,2rabbits,4hamsters and 1gecko-and I was quite happy just living with our two cats!!!Anyway I made her a card using Chicken Run images,I used a background stamp on kraft card and cut into strips for a chicken shed door and added some fibres for straw.I added two apertures with lift up covers inside card as little chicken roosts.

  15. What a managerie! Wonderful card and, by the sounds of things, the perfect choice of image - I only really remember Ginger from the film, I should watch it again. I have a niece and nephew, brother and sister, born on the same day but several years apart (funnily enough they are the children of my sister, whose birthday is April 11).
