Its the last day of term here in France for two weeks. My daughter is very excited as we have a movie night planned for this evening and also its Halloween soon.
The school usually have a little coffee and cake event where the kids all dress up so I must come up with a spooky ideasfor my cupcakes.
So back to todays post which is for Daring Cardmakers. Our lovely host this weeks is Miri.
Miri would like to know if you are a country or a city kind of person and then show us what you like about living there in your creations.
Can you guess what I am?
That's right. Country.
I grew up in the countryside in England and now I live in the beautiful countryside of Brittany, France.
As we had a little surprise hatching of new chicks I thought I would feature a cockerel on my card.
To make my card I started with a piece of black card stock and trimmed it to fit my card front. I then took a piece of grey card stock and trimmed this slightly smaller. I then stamped the pretty flowers to the bottom and top which is from a set by Stampin Up called Wood Words.
I then placed the grey card stock through my Spellbinders Platinum machine and used the embossing folder from Spellbinders called Chicken Wire by Donna Salazar.
I then used the same stamp and die from Stampin Up to make the cockerel and also I used the flowers again but this time coloured them in using some promakers. I then added a little gingham ribbon to finish.
Gingham and country are just made for each other.
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see if you are a city or a country kind of person.
Please stop by the Daring Cardmakers blog for more lovely inspiration and I will see you there.
Have a lovely weekend.
