I'm here for you little Owl!

I've been thinking about punches and die cuts ever since I saw the CAS-ual Fridays challenge on Friday, and I think I've finally come up with something I like. Come and see:

I know I'm not alone in thinking this owl punch is a cutie and a half and there are so many characters you can make with it too. I've seen it dressed up as Santa, doctors and nurses, brides and grooms, pirates, graduates... and it also transforms beautifully into reindeer, penguins, cats, bats, chicks, monsters, devils, bats, mummies... well I think you get the idea with that!

My little owl is looking very nervous - he's flown a bit too high and is way out of his comfort zone up there! He's resting on a cloud I made using the new Labels framelits but it's a long way down... I think  this a great sentiment for someone who has found themselves in a spot of bother too.

Here's what you'll need to make today's card:
Stamps: Petite Pairs
Ink: Poppy Parade
Card stock: Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Whisper White smooth and textured
Other: Crumb Cake marker, Labels framelits, Big Shot, Owl punch, stamp-a-majig
I'd be delighted to order any of these items for you and can have them delivered to your address in the UK. I'm committed to providing excellent customer service and am always happy to offer help and advice. To place your order, just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593.

The sky in Buckingham is the same colour as the sky in my card but there's not a cloud to be seen! Yes, that's right, the sun is out and I'm happy! And I'm not the only one enjoying the warmth...

Yesterday I heard my husband telling the cat that it would be great if they could swap lives!

I'll be back tomorrow when cycling will be the theme for Three Minute Thursday. Do come and join me then,


  1. Cute as can be! Love the "clouds" too! Precious.
    I'd like to swap places with your cat too! LOL!
