Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday “Hey Chick” Blog Hop

Hi Stampers,  Today we had a sketch challenge so I decided to use the Hey Chick stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  This stamp set is free when you purchase $50 worth of Stampin Up products.  This set really spoke to me. A few years ago I had and an urban chicken coup with three girls.  Wilma, Betty and Pebbles. When Pebbles died I got a new hen, a Buff Orpington (for you chicken enthusiasts) and named her Peaches for her color.  The Chicken I colored today reminds me of Peaches.

Here is the sketch:

I reversed the placement of my circle to the left side but the card would work either way.
