Peace & Chickens

hee hee   That's an interesting blog post title, no?  ;)  It's going to be 90 degrees or hotter here today, but then we are supposed to get some rain over the next couple of days, which is rare for this time of year.  I'm secretly looking forward to it, though, because I know I'll get a lot of crafting done if I'm stuck in the house.  LOL

Today we have a reminder post for you at:

I am also entering this into the:

I used this sweet digi stamp from Skhedr (which is apparently also Shery K Designs, I did not realize that!) called Peace on Earth, completely paper-pieced and torn out. I then sponged the edges with ink, and used scraps of coordinating DP for the ATC background, then sponged some more brown ink around the edges of that.  I added a little gold peace sign brad and a piece of brown rick rack from my stash to finish it off.

Next up - we also have a reminder post for you at:

I am also entering this into the:

I used the adorable chickens that we gave away as a freebie a couple of weeks ago (and which you can now find in the shop in a cute set here).  I printed them rather large, then paper-pieced them and the flowers.  I used coordinating papers for the background - that middle piece reminded me of chicken wire, so that was what made me choose this particular paper pad from MME.  I added a ribbon and some gold pearl stickers to complete it.  Peace.
