Caroling Chicks - Stampingbella


Hi Everyone!
I need to step up my game because this is the first Christmas card I've made this year.  Normally I try to have a few done by now so I can avoid the panic and rush closer to Christmas but I am way behind this year.  I don't know why I'm lagging... I'm so busy doing nothing yet I always think I'm busy.  hahahahha.... oh well!
Today I used the cute Stampingbella Caroling Chicks.  I've used this cute stamp before and likely will again and again.  The little guy on the far right just cracks me up... either he's just a grump or the others couldn't carry a tune if they had a pail!
I used Lawn Fawn's Puffy Cloud Border die and coloured the image with Copics.  The paper is from a gorgeous pad of Christmas paper by Reflections which I got at Michael's awhile back.  The little jingle bells were also a Michael's purchase.
I hope you are having a great summer and thanks for stopping by!
Copics:
Chicks - Y35, Y32, Y00, Y000, RV10, RV000
Shading - BG13, BG11, BG10

Oh, I love this card! The chicks are so funny and cute. I really like how you've used the LF cloud border, what a fantastic idea. Lovely paper (wish there was a Michael's in the UK) and the bells are perfect embellishments. Debra x
