CCT - stitch in time: 'click -cluck'

CCT wants to see stitching on your cards this week so as well as lots of faux stitching I decided to use my knitting chickens stamp :) which I've had for years but think this may be first time I've inked it up!

Another simple card from me I'm afraid as I did this late last night. Used the sketch over on Sketch & Stash and I've covered the optional extra of 'animals' too.


  • Image: neglected 'spinning a yarn' PB stamp
  • Colouring: Copics
  • Papers: DCWVV 'nana's kitchen' & blue cardstock for matting and cardbase
  • Others: Fiskars 'apron lace' border punch, EK wave slimline edger punch, EK retro flower punches, buttons and lots of faux stitching with gel pens


Urghhh! seem to have really bad hayfever this year and I don't like it! Never used to have it has a kid, only in recent years :( and it seems worse this year!!! O.k, moan over. Going to go sniffle in my craft room and try and stay cool (Being in the north west, we seem to have got the humid icky temperature but not the corresponding sunshine like down south, just the odd burst, rest of the time it's overcast and 'bleah' :/)
