'Owl always be here for you'

Hello me lovelies

How are we all?? Are we all getting excited and ready for Christmas??


It's been a little hectic in our household...just when i thought i was getting over my cold the last time i was here, nope it came back with avengence and then to top things of i sliced the top of my thumb nearly off with a pair of scissors...no joking either...lots of blood all over my DT and order cards that i just made so they had to be made all over again eeek!!
Now i know what's going through your minds...how the hell did you managed to slice your thumb with scissors.....welllll there's a lesson to be learned from my story and that's never take your eye off the ball {scissors in my case} when cleaning them...yep i was away with the fairies when cleaning, thinking of Christmas and getting all excited about all the the nice things i have planned with my children over the what i call the Christmas month...watch a Christmas movie every night, pressie shopping, Christmas baking etc 
{all exciting...Yay!!} Oh i love Christmas!!

Right i best stop waffling because i am getting a tad excited and i could talk about Christmas all night hehehe

Unfortunately today i don't have a Christmas card for you but i will have over the next few days, instead i have a little owl card for you 'Owl always be here for you'...using an adorable stamp and matching die set from Clearly Besotted called 'You're a Hoot' so without further ado here's todays creation...hope you likey :)



Update - Forgot to tell you that this card was made using scraps from my scrap box...this is a little challenge i have set myself and it's one way of getting rid of all those scraps you have left over from others cards, why not try it too!!

Products i have used...
Papers and card...Trimcraft First Edition 'Sweet Owl' 8x8 paper pad, Brown and Kraft card {stash}
Ink...Stampin Up 'Close to cocoa' and 'Creamy caramel' ink pads
Tools...Clearly Besotted 'You're a Hoot' die, Xcut decorative tag dies and Spotty embossing folder
Well that's all from me today folks but i will be back soon...
Thank you for taking the time to stop by here and for any sweet comments you may leave me :)
Till next time me lovelies...

Hi Gemma,

I thought I was the most accident prone crafter around, but there are a few more! Ouchy, I normally do it when trimming the dogs!
Love the cute card.
