Just chicken in

 
Thought this fun chicken would be perfect to use for my neighbors Christmas card.  She loves to knit and is always giving us knitted hats and gifts.  Stamp is made by Penny Black.  Colored with Copics.  Green layer is embossed with Chicken Wire embossing folder.  Cut out two small pieces of silver cardstock for the knitting needles then wrapped green floss around a punched circle to create the ball of yarn.
