Here's the card I made for my cousin Candy.  She just loves her chickens so I got this image for her thank you card.  My sister and I went to the Scrapbook Mega Meet over Mother's Day weekend with her.  We had such an amazing time.  I hope she likes it.

As I'm looking at this I see that I was a little crooked on the sentiment but I will have to say it will just add to the character since I can't take it off.  I really need to wear my glasses from beginning to end when doing a card.  Also I normally don't make my pics this large but I wanted to make sure you can all see the googly eyes.  When Candy and I were helping my sister to organize her craft room, Candy found so many googly eyes that she will have enough to last 3-4 lifetimes.  This image cried out for these eyes so I swiped some from her.  I love how they look and Candy will get a kick out of it.

I so love this card!! The chicken wire embossing folder, the feathers, the stacked sentiment, the color (blue, not green, lol) and, of course, those eyes! I love, love, love it!!

He's a great looking cockerel or rooster I think in your parts Robin and the embossing folder is perfect for the image.
