 Moved away from Christmas cards, at least for the time being, and I've made a fun birthday card with chicks.  I took a square of white card and stamped in grey with a woodgrain stamp before using a couple of circle dies and a punch to cut out the round windows.  I thought that the blue DSP would suit this card because it looks a bit like a chicken wire design.  The white layer was popped up with foam tape and then I used up a selection of chick images which I'd stamped, coloured and cut out a while ago and stored  ready for use when I wanted to make a fairly quick card.  It is a lovely sunny day at present and although a touch chilly outside the sun is shining through the window as I type and it feels quite warm.
