Seasonal Owl

 Another Christmas card to share today, this time using a downloaded image which I've printed off before die-cutting into an oval.  The background paper was also part of the download and the little spray of flowers and foliage was made up from oddments left over from another project.  Greeting was stamped onto a spare die cut tag.

I've not been as active in the card department lately but haven't been idle as I've been busy making patchwork blocks to use up some of my fabric mountain which, like the paper mountain, never seems to diminish however much I use up 🙄

Image and background - Cuddly Buddly digital download
Foliage - dies from Sizzix and John Next Door (flowers)
Greeting - Contempo Christmas stamp set Stampin' Up (retired)

Pixie's Playground Challenge #413

 Time for another challenge over in the Pixie's Snippets Playground and we have a great guest designer - none other than our Head Prefect SaRn who has come up with three lovely cards for inspiration and to showcase the super prize on offer this time.  For  my card I've made a DL design and apart from the card blank everything else was produced from snippets of one sort or another.  Mainly white card scraps for  stamping and a few coloured scraps for the die cuts.  I started with a scrap of card just smaller than the card blank and partially stencilled this to give a  little interest.  The snail was stamped, coloured and fussy cut and the leaves and toadstools were die cut from scraps.  The 'hello' tag was left over from some DSP which came with an online class and the greeting was produced on the computer.   Why not use up some of your snippets to be in with a chance of winning the lovely prize
