Coolest Chick Ever

 Hello all. I am such a bad human being, the card I am about to share should have gone live yesterday and for some reason, probably old age, I had it in my head that it was next week.

So, without further ado here is my DT card for

Our Sponsor is Angie Blom and I chose an image from her Coolest Chicks Ever set.

I coloured her with Promarkers and added a touch of white pen to highlight her feathers.

Here she is close up!!

We have been very productive chez Wills. For many years we have been intending to replace the cladding on the barn that houses the stabling and this week was the week. I have also been on the hunt for a second hand bicycle so that I can accompany Martin on his jaunts around the local villages. When I arrived home from work on Thursday there was a lovely bike (with panniers!!) in the drive, my darling Hubby had only gone and found one, local too, and collected it for me. We went on our maiden voyage yesterday afternoon, only three miles mind you but darn near killed me!! Turns out I am not quite as fit as I thought I was!!

Lovely to have your company...see you soon xx

Don't worry about forgetting to post, one of my recent posts went live before it should have! Love the cute image and the white pen really brings the chuck to life. Enjoy touring the lanes, cycling was never my strongest pursuit! :)

Loving all the gorgeous pink, Sarah and that image has a great expression!
Good luck with the cycling...although I believe exercise is very overrated! 😏

A super card Sarah, pretty papers and a great image.
Enjoy your cycling, it's amazing how a different form of exercise can catch you out even if you are fit - I'm a walker and could walk for miles but I can't cycle for one!

Hi Sarah,

That's a very cute image and I love the sentiment - very clever!

So am interested, what kind of bike did the hubby get you? I got my 'sit up and beg' bike a couple years ago - a Pendleton Somerby and absolutely love it!! It's a bit unwieldy heaving it over fences but just going along the prom - brilliant! I even got a basket to go with it for Christmas just gone. TTT says I look like a proper little old lady!!

This chicken is hilarious Sarah LOL love the way you have coloured it and the gorgeous papers...I feel your pain with your bike but what a wonderful hubby you have..I bought a gel seat and it still killed me LOL hugs Sue x

Well at least riding four legs prepares the derriere for a cycle saddle, used to love my bike but the balance issues led to hubby confiscating it, so cruel.

Love your fun Hen image Sarah.
