You're a hoot card

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

The past week has been quite a difficult week for me as my dad passed away suddenly and then my health has been giving me a lot of problems too. My dad and I weren't very close but it obviously was still a shock. So for these reasons, I just haven't been able to concentrate on crafting or blogging. 

I did manage to make one card before last week and that was for our niece. 

Monday was our niece's 21st birthday and as she loves owls, I thought I would use the Clearly Besotted You're a hoot stamp set.

I started with the patterned paper that is the lacey circle. From there, I chose the card and the ink. 

 The cute little owl with the polkadot heart is so cute. Love it.

As our niece loves owls, I bought her a cute little owl mug, only trouble was when Hollie saw it, she wanted one too!

Hope you are having a great week.
