The Funky Chicken



Hello friends and welcome to my Saturday posting for the Our Creative Corner design team. This is my last week as host and I am challenging all our participants to a sketch challenge.

Our sponsor this week is a brand new digital stamp company Sugar Creek Hollow. So new, in fact, that their Grand Opening is March 1st. They are a Christian company that is giving all of their proceeds to a food pantry. They are offering $10 in free digital images to the lucky winner of this week's random selection. But really everybody wins because as part of their Grand Opening there is a fabulous Friday Freebie (from yesterday), a blog hop, a drawing for $50 in free digital stamps and the opportunity to receive a free digital stamp for every $10 you spend on the Grand Opening day of March 1st. So be sure to drop by their site on Monday and check out all the goodies!

My OCC card this week was made with an image from Sugar Creek Hollow. Isn't this American primitive chicken just the cutest? As soon as I saw her, I thought BANDANA! So I searched out some bandana paper. I found a digital paper pack on line at Designer Digitals and had fun again with digital paper piecing. The blue background panel is Night of Navy that has been embossed with the Cuttlebug paisley embossing folder and sponged with white craft ink to give it sort of a faded denim look. Then I couldn't resist cutting up an old bandana for the horizontal panel in the center of the sketch.

Thanks so much for dropping by and for all your lovely comments. I hope you will take the time to stop by Our Creative Corner to see the awesome work by the rest of our design team. Have a wonderful weekend!
