Who’s Having A Birthday!

C4C129 OwlGirl wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week I am hosting the challenge.

So to answer my question in the title … about Who’s having a birthday, well that would be me! (Happy Birthday to me! hehe) …. So we are going to use one of my favorite things! Can you guess what it is …… OWLS!!!!!!!!! If you don’t have Owls in your collection use some other sort of bird … but I would love to see those owls!!!!!!!!!

For my first card today I have used a freebie digital stamp which I found on SJ’s Little Musings blog just before Christmas …. I love her owl hat and scarf she is wearing. I had printed this out and colored part of it before Christmas and hadn’t gotten around to doing anything with it and found it recently, so decided to use it for the challenge this week.

So in case my “Crazy” friends think I am cheating my own challenge LOL, I made another card. Hehe .. they wouldn’t really mind of course!  This is a set I purchased recently and is from Penny Black!

I stamped the owl on white card and then used my Spellbinders heart die to diecut the image. I masked the image and then airbrush the blue area of the heart.

The flower is created using MFT Die-namics Loopy Bloom die and material, after assembling the flower I airbrushed that using pink copic markers.
