Chicken Paintings

For quite a long time now, our quaint little Village has been home to many chickens and roosters who wander around the downtown area.  Here I have painted just a few chickens with acrylics on canvas.

Petal Palette Sympathy

Fellow Demonstrator LeeAnn Greff has a video on making this Double Flap card, which can be found here: 

(Note:  Read the comments below the video for corrected sizes/scoring)

To make this card my own, I have added the die cut little bird (popped up on a dimenational) from Petal Palette Memories & More Card Pack to hold the little flap closed.  You can also mirror image the bird stamp from Petal Palette stamp set then cut it out with the Petals & More die (on the back side).
