Happy World Card Making Day & little giveaways

Happy World Card Making Day everyone! I’m so glad I had a bit of time this morning to make a card.

Stamps (Hero Arts) - Holly Flourish, Heart Owls, Holiday Dolls & Three Trees

To start with I clear embossed the Holly Flourish on green card and added some gems and dots of red glitter glue. Then I added some twine which the lovely Sue had sent me a while ago - thanks again Sue! The owls are coloured with watercolour pencils. I coloured the little Santa hats (from the Holiday Dolls set)with Promarkers and added some diamond stickles to the rims and a little pompom to the top of each. The sentiment is embossed in white. I'm submitting the card into the current challenge at Hero Arts and the Jolly Holiday Greetings Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Given the day that’s in it, I thought I’d have a couple of little giveaway. I really wish I had some Hero Arts products (my absolute favourite!) to offer but I had to make do with picking items from what a local shop had in stock yesterday. So there are stamps, stickers, buttons, chocolate and a couple of things that I knitted.





I had fallen in love with a little crochet owlet that I had seen on Lisa Spangler’s blog and as I still haven't learned how to crochet, I was delighted to come across a knitted version of the same owlet here. So this was my first attempt at knitting a little owlet. I’m trying to track down owl eyes here and if I get them there will be proper eyes on the owl when I send it out!

So to enter all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and next Saturday I will pick two names out of a hat. Hope you all have a great weekend and are enjoying World Card Making Day!
