Have a hoot

Hi all

This week I am up at my parents in the north of England, which is great as I always get spoiled rotten and as my mum is a fellow crafter I get to spend quite a bit of crafting and not worrying about chores...........

So today I am have been busy making Xmas cards (which I will put up on a slide show at the end of the week) and made a card for my brother for his birthday next month which just so happens to have a flying owl (ABC challenge), makes reference to family (Creative Inspirations), includes autumn colours (Secret Crafter) and uses a sketch (Just Magnolia). Phew I believe that covers 4 challenges.....
I had received these stamps in my order from the new Magnolia spooky range, but as we don't really celebrate Halloween I wanted to make a card that used the stamps a bit differently and men's cards are always a tough one for me.

So without further ado.....

Recipe: 184/365
Stamps: Magnolia - So Spooky; spooky moon and tree branch, flying owl. Kelly Panacci - Twit Twoo. Papers My minds eye - Andrea Victoria; Golden Beads & Sizzix little sizzles card stock neutrals. Embossed with Cuttlebug- Forest Branches. E line by Prima. Peel off from stash. Coloured with distressed inks.
OMG look at the time I must fly (LOL)
