3 French Hens

I made this card with the Penny Black Saturday blog in mind but was 22 mins too late to upload it..but I will enter Pennyblack at Allsorts November -All creatures great and small  (my camera battery was flat!) This lovely stamp is actually a birthday stamp and has 4 hens and a birthday cake but a bit of masking and cutting out and embossing and extra present instead of the birthday cake and Volia! a christmas card is born LOL.  I am very into chicken stamps at the moment as I am still in the honeymoon period with my three 'girls'  actually one is a White Sussex and I was getting pretty fed up that she had stopped laying since moving them to the poly tunnel for the winter....until I went to put some tools away and discovered 8 white eggs laid in the corner behind the tool rack!
