Craft Secrets Farm Chicks Blog Hop

Hello everyone!
Today I have a fun surprise for you!

I'm taking part in the Crafty Secrets Farm Chicks Blog Hop along with the rest of the crazy creative designers on the Crafty Secrets Team.  Each design team member has used the new Farm Chicks Digital Art Stamps, or the new Digital Chicken Farm Print paper ...or both to create a fabulous chicken themed project to inspire and delight you!  If you are coming here from Kathy's blog, then you are right on track.  If not, you can go back to the Crafty Secrets Blog and follow the links. 

After printing this fabulous design paper I decided to add some extra color using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to the straw, hen & chick.  I also did a little stenciling, distressing and added some dimension to the basket of eggs by popping them up.

And just for fun, I have made a second card with these fabulous images/paper to share with you today.  Wouldn't this card make a fabulous Masculine Birthday Card? 

Every great blog hop needs a prize, and one lucky winner will receive their very own set of the Farm Chicks Digital Art Stamps AND the digital Chicken Farm Paper.  

To win, simply visit every blog listed below and leave a nice comment. Then, finish up this hop on the Crafty Secrets BLOG and let us know that you've visited and commented on all the designers’ blogs.   The winner will be randomly chosen from one of the blog comments on one of the designer's blogs.  How fun is that?  

From here, you should strut on over to visit Diane's fabulous blog.  She has a wonderful project to share with you, and is the next link on the hop! 

Thanks for stopping by and GOOD LUCK!
As always . . .
