'Hooting' For You.

Hello And Welcome to today's post
which is for Just Us Girls Photo Challenge.
Our Host is  Maria choosing this
cutiest of images below.

I decided to go with that cute owl and a few of the colours.
I was at a craft show last week end and picked up this owl die.
from Couture Creations.
Also trying out other new goodies is the background
which is made with Magicals in Screamin' Banshee Black.
I so love the outcome with the shimmery blue -
perfect night time scene. And so my card was born.
I cut out a backdrop showing a big moon for my owl sitting on a
nesting die from Uniquely Creative showing then
added some punched stars from a metallic paper.
My owl was cut from black card stock and again
in white and orange for the eyes and nose.
After that was attached I then added branches from
Tim's Holiday Greens and an old MS punch.
Finished that with a button threaded with cotton
and new sentiment die from Impression Obsession.
Added a frame in the same metallic paper as the stars
and adhered to black card base.

Hope you will pop over to Our Blog
to see what our Guest Hannelie and the Team
created for your pleasure.
Hope to see you in our Gallery.

I am popping this cute owl card over to
The Card Concept for their cute owl image also.

Thanks for dropping by today.

I Made My Mark with ...

It's Make Your Mark over at

What is Make Your Mark?
Creations using
 pencils, pens, paints, markers, textas, chalks... 
anything that represents making your mark.

Here is how I made my 'Mark'
I have an addiction with backgrounds
and what better time to make one with this challenge.
I got out Tim's Oxide Inks using 
Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint on
watercolour paper smooching and drying as I went along
till I liked the result. Happy here!
I then got out an old wooden SU stamp - 
Inspired by Nature and heat embossed it with
Wow Metallic Platinum.
Cut this out with a stitched die and
added my mounted CUTploration sentiment
to finish smooching in the same colours.

Thanks for dropping in.
Love reading your comments.
Don't forget to pop over and see my
Team Mates 'Mark' and
come join us this week
Hope to see you in the Gallery.
