Loving Owls At The Moment!

Well I made this card and I have to say I found it VERY hard to part with it... I just love the colours and I am in love with my little owl stamp! But I made it for a friend who's feeling low at the moment and I just wanted to send her a little card to make her smile.

Papers are last years craftwork cards chrimbo pack... I am so proud of myself for actually using some of these papers up as I bought them last year at Ally Pally and I only managed to use one piece last year because they were pink and too nice to use!

I have been trying to make christmas cards ... with a small amount of success... but I needed to play with my new owl stamp!

My baby owl is a Hero Arts stamp and the sentiment is part of an Hero Arts set that Becky very kindly gave me as she had lost one to the set and had to re-buy it! :)

I'm really into owls and birds at the moment, flowers have taken a bit of a back seat temporailly of course...

My other bit of news is that my craft room has just got bigger... YAY!!... OK I know that is going to sound weird because how can a room get bigger I hear you ask?! Well I had a lovely little futon in my craft room, which seemed to spend more time having stash piled up onto it than actually using it....

Well I noticed yesterday that it had mould growing underneath it on the cushion.... YUCK... luckily I caught it early so it couldn't spread but it had to be evicted from the craft room... I wanted it to go anyway but my other half was suggesting I sold it before we moved it... so finally I got my way and it's no longer in my craft room!!

So now I have all this room ready to be filled with units to store my goodies.. I have it all planned in my head what I want... just need to explain to my other half that the extra space does not mean he can have a larger wardrobe as I need shelving units for stamps and I also want another table so that when I have my crafty friends over we can all sit round a table rather than me getting squashed up on a small garden table!!

Oooh I am sooo excited!

It's been a while...

Well it's been a long while since I posted anything... sorry I have't been about much I've either been racing around with very little time to play or when I have sat down to play I've been having one of those moments where I don't like what I make and just sit there at the craft desk not knowing what to make! I've managed a few scrapbook LO's but looking at those now I'm not 100% sure...

Anyway three cards to start my blog up again... the little SU froggie is actually on actetate so he bounces but it doesn't really show up on the photo.
The owl stamps are from pink cat studio, I'm really into owls and birds at the moment so be warned because you might be seeing more birds and owl cards! :) The dotty circles were drawn on using a circle template that I bought from Scrap Revolution and the paper is fancy pants which again I struggled to cut but I have a spare (PHEW!)
The 50th card was for my Uncle, more bo Bunny paper used... I seriously need to stock up on Bo Bunny dotty paper!!! The cat in the 0 is one of their pussy cats called Bobbie... he's a real cutie and as you can see a complete poser! :)
I really need to get my christmas head on to make a start on the 120 christmas cards I need to make... I am so behind but I've lost my mojo again :(
