Good morning all, I have a card to share today!
This is one I made for my MIL's Birthday.
She's chicken mad & has a little chicken run in her back garden.
She enters them & thier eggs in to local shows & wins a number of prizes
with them too! I have to say the eggs are delicious!
We're off out to lunch with her today, to celebrate her Birthday!
Here's my card!

I used a free image Vintage Chickens
The sentiment was from the Never Too Old To Party set by
Paulette at Create With TLC

I added a little punched boder & a piece of ribbon detail!
I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

I'd like to enter this card in a few challenges:

  17. Beautiful card, Dawn! Love your story about your MIL's chicken. Reminds me of the few we had when I was a child. I became so attached to it (and it to me -- followed me all around the yard) that plans about her being family dinner when she was grown had to be changed. :-D
