Flying Chickens

I am back today with a flying chicken!  I have used an old stamp by Create A Smile called 'Eggstraordinary Egghunt which I have used quite a lot as there are some really cute stamps on it but I have used the chicken/rooster today to create this card.
Create a Smile - Eggstraordinary Egghunt
I decided to make him fly so after colouring him in with copic markers.  The balloons are from Friends For All Seasons by WPlus9 as is the sentiment which is from Unforgettable and that is heat embossed.  I added Glossy Accents to the beak and balloons.
Eggstraordinary Egghunt by Create A Smile used to make a birthday card
I die cut the clouds from Mama Elephant Landscape Trio and added some distress ink to the edges.  The frame is one which I seem to use on nearly every card I make at the moment and is by L'il inker Dual Stitched Rectangles.
I popped everything up on foam tape and added some squiggles to make the chicken look as if he is flapping his wings.
Now for a MOLE UPDATE:  If you read my blog on Monday you would have seen my mole card inspired by the mole/moles that have invaded our garden and is causing much despair with my husband whose prize lawn is being slowly destroyed.  We have tried everything to get rid of them to no avail.  A fellow crafter on Instagram suggested blasting them out with a powerful jet of water down their runs.  We did this on Tuesday evening and woke up on Wednesday morning only to find that they had moved to the other side of the garden!!  Aren't they crafty?!!!  Anyway this evening, (it's Wednesday as I am typing this) my husband blasted some more water down their new this space to see if it works. 
Have a lovely weekend.

  1. A super cute and happy card, I love the little chicken with the red balloons.

    A friend told me about some repellers on Amazon that might help you with the moles.

  2. Another GREAT card, I love those dies and the flying chick.
    AW! those poor moles LOL. Tell him he'll have the lawn sinking into the runs!!!!!! Sorry can't be more helpful LOL.

    1. You're right Faith but the lawn was already sinking because of all his little runs so we thought what the heck...let's give it a go!!! Grrr and even more grrrrs!

  3. A super card Wendy, such a fun chicken and great sentiment.
    Good luck with the moles, it might be worth getting a professional in if the water doesn't work - I think Faith is right, the lawn will sink if you're not careful.
    Have a lovely weekend.
