I just love, love, love the idea of chickens on a Xmas card. We have 8 chickens & they are the funniest things to watch, they lead such busy little lives, not to mention those wonderful eggs! Anyway… I used this fantastic Penny Black stamp for my Xmas cards a couple of years ago & remember messing around with water colours and this time it’s Copics & they are just the Best! It has made all the difference, no mess, no drying time, no fuss! This is my entry for the current Caardvarks Challenge – Inside & Out, which is sponsored by Penny Black, so I thought it appropriate to use one of my favourite stamps made by them. Here I go counting again… this is Xmas card No.3!
