Have You Seen my Hen?
Are you feeling like chicken tonight?! Then we have the perfect thing for you, today, for Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images!
Today, we are featuring Hen, available on sale for a special price today only, in the Shelly's Images Store.
I became quite attached to this cute little hen while creating with her, and I felt like calling her her just "hen," was too impersonal. So, I gave my hen a name! I'm calling my hen Gertrude, and this is what I did with her:
Gertrude and I worked together to make this cute card. I wanted to go with a country type look, because this hen reminds me of how my grandparents raised chickens when I was little. The papers are all from my stash. I love polka dots and they're very "country" to me, so I went with polka dot papers. The metallic ribbon is from my stash. I added a strip of ribbon and then added two cute little bows. The redish colored buttons across the bottom are also from my stash. My hen, Gertrude, is colored with Promarkers.
