Par Avion

I'm alternating between Christmas and Hallowe'en on my blog this week...and today I have a Christmas card to show you. It's a one-layer-card for this week's Less Is More's 'Wings' challenge. I've used a cute Penny Black chicken stamp called 'Par Avion'...now why is it that when there's a 'things with wings' themed challenge everyone else is entering elegant butterfly and arty bird stamped cards...and I go for chickens??? The sentiment stamp is from a Lili of the Valley set.

A lovely, simple festive card. It did make me smile because my neighbour had 3 hens that I looked after from time to time. They were comical too!
