little owl



It feels like It has been ages since I have been here in Blogland! Sorry all..been really busy with work. Also at the weekend I was down in Glasgow to go and see Strictly Come Dancing!! which was Fab - u - lous!!!!! Loved it so much. I did manage a craft shop, but I wasn't feeling that well so I walked round it in a daze, and just bought some copic paper and a green copic pen! a bit of a waste but then I am sure I will get chance to go again!!

Now to my card...once again working from my scraps so I have no idea what the papers are! The gorgeous owl is a Sugar Nellie image that was free on a CS magazine last year sometime! (yes I baught the magazine for the stamp!!!!......I have a subscription now which is fab!) I have stamped it about 4 times and built up the layers..coloured in copics!!

The zig zag stitching has been stamped with a HOTP stamp and finally I have added some peel off swirls and a few gems!!

this is my entry for:

Stamp Something - something cute
Daring card makers - have a heart
Alphabet - P is for Pink
Cup Cake - keep it simple
Sophistiocat - Stitching (real or faux)

Thanks for looking...hope to catch up with what you have all been doing! Hugs Juls

  9. Gorgeous card Juls. Love the way you have layered the owl and love the colour too. The black swirl makes him pop nicely. It was a shame that you were feeling poorly at the Strictly show. It is the first time that I haven't been to see the tour this year - withdrawal symptoms :0( lol. Do you live in Scotland? Hugs, Lainy xxx

  14. Hi Juls,
    I bought the mag for this stamp too, and now, like you I'm a subscriber.
    Brilliant card, as always. I love the stitching stamp you've used. It looks like that could save a lot of time and you can have stitches in any colour you like.
    Hugs, Clare x
