Forgotten Friday 13- What a difference a week makes!

Hello folks, it's Friday, and that means that it's time for you to rummage through your forgotten stash again, and see if you can make something with your neglected craft goodies.

We've had a bit of a week in our house; firstly, we've got 15 chicks that have hatched. They are so cute, and I thought I'd post a couple of pictures for you.
Don't they just make you want to go ahhhh? We keep Pekin chickens, which are miniature sized chickens. They have feathers over their feet like little shoes, with short legs. They waddle when they run towards you, and are very sweet. That is a walnut shell beside the chick on the left, to show you how tiddly they are!
The warm weather has been lovely for them, and they doze off in the sunshine, having 40 winks, when they get tired.

On the flip side this week, my Husband broke his collarbone, and dislocated his shoulder last Friday night, playing football. As he was coming out of Hospital the following morning, he collapsed, and was readmitted. He has given me a bit of a scare, I can tell you! He is okay, and home now, but can't drive, and needs a lot of looking after. It will take several weeks to heal, and will be very painful. No football for a while....

So, I haven't managed any crafting this week apart from a very simple project for this post. I found a lovely, untouched paper pad by Susan Winget titled 'Nature' for K & Co. I chose a lovely peachy themed piece of DP, and rummaged through my neglected Lavinia stamps, to create a scene. I have simply layered the stamps, using different colours, some shading, and a really useful dotty stamp which can be used for leaves, or ground shadows.

I hope you will for give me my quick card today. We have company later, and my nursemaiding duties are calling me again! Have a lovely Easter everyone, hopefully, the next week will be less eventful for me, and I might get a bit more crafting done. Don't forget to leave a comment if you make a 'forgotten' project, and I'll pop along to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

You're right my friend you do just have to go Aaaawwwwwww!!! They are definitely the cutest little things. I'm glad the weather has been kind to them until they got a bit stronger.

Love your card. You know I'm also a fan of Lavinia images and you've layered these beautifully. Well done for even managing to make a card under the circumstances.
