chicken fever

The chickens are finished!
Still got the actual cards to make but the most fiddly part is done. The cards will be quicker if I can allow for thicker margins between my squares. I make the backing out of layers of card punched into squares. But the margins between are thinker than I like, so then I end up trimming the squares. If I go for bigger it will cut down on making time. Ooooh decisions, decisions.

Still haven't actually had the letter of intent, just a verbal agreement but I'll plough on and just have to give out loads of chicken cards this year!

Carys has her guide uniform now so here is a rushed photo of her as we were going out last night. she is perfecting the tweenage "Do I have to?" look. She looks so old to me! ON Sunday hse is doing a sponsored abseil then next Friday it's the Big Gig where lots of Guides go to a concert with lots of the current favourite singers/bands eg Lamarr.

Chickens chickens everywhere! (and not an egg to eat!) Don't envy you Lythan - I'm having flashbacks to 'the wedding order'... And hasn't the guide uniform changed since I was one?!

How cute are those chickens!

Instead of sticking them on squares, you could put some in baskets.....



Maybe not

Are you wanting some snappy greetings for the cards?
