Hoot Hoot!


Hi everyone,

First up Happy New Year to you all, I hope 2015 brings everything good to you and yours!

After a few weeks break it's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month (and year!) it time to introduce a new challenge hostess which this time round is Vicky Gould.

For our first challenge of the year Vicky tells us that seeing she loves birds we are to include a bird on our card.


Well as most of you should know by now … I love owls, so I am sure it will come as no big surprise that the bird I decided to use on my card today is an owl … actually 4 owls (two stamp sets from the same company). This gave me the perfect opportunity to ink up two Woodware Stamp sets I got back in October when I was working at a Craft Show.

As you can see I have created a pop up card using the Lorna Label Pop Up Card designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. The sentiment on the base of the card is one from a Taylored Expression stamp set.


Here is a side on view of my card so you can see the pop up parts of my card a little better.


And here is the front of my card using another Woodware Stamps Owl .. if you like owls this company has quite a few!

I was sure you'd be featuring an owl as your bird - and not just an owl but a whole fun family of them on this delightful card.
