Hootie Pie the Owl

What another wonderful weekend we are having.  Having said that I haven't seen much of it so far I am attending a two day workshop near Guildford making a vintage themed journal  complete with photos, lots of vintage fabric and lace and other embellishments. Day one was lots of fun laying out our pages and starting the process of attaching.  Only saw the sunshine for brief moment when we sat outside for lunch after a stroll across the street to browse in a local scrapbooking store.  I am positive that it won't be completed today as there is so much to do, but the structure will be in place.

 Today I would like to share with you a tag I made using a new range of stamps that are available for preorder in the store here and are part of a very cute collection of stamps.

Introducing Hootie Pie the Owl, it is part of a set of 5 unmounted owls called Stitched Owls from Pink Cat Studios, they are so darn cute.

Also I have used Memory Box Dies - Picket Fence & Hot Air Balloon and Poppy Stamp Die - Simple Banner.  The paper, flower & ribbon  is from Card Embellishment Kit No 1.  All of these an much more are available to order from the store here.  The sentiment is by me which I created in Word, the owl in the centre is a rubon by October Afternoon and has been part of stash for many years.

Remember there is still time to join in this months Monochromatic + One challenge.

Thanks for dropping by, enjoy your weekend too.

Happy crafting

Burlesque Bessie

Well this year is certainly flying by very fast June already!

Since my last post I have been on a craft camp. Had a fabulous weekend 3 days  crafting, creating anything we wanted, no dishes or  housework so much fun.  Can't wait until the next one which hopefully will be towards the end of this year yippee!

Now being that is now June that means  challenge time again at Bizzy Becs.  Each month the DT girls get to choose the challenge theme and this month it is my turn.  Hope you all like it as I  chose Monochromatic + 1 extra colour.  So for my colours I have chosen shades of brown + green as my extra colour.

There is another fabulous prize up for offer for the winner this month kindly donated by
                                                         Bizzy Becs online store

                                                       Spellbinder Die   D-Lite die  

For my card I have chosen an image from the Store- Blue Butterfly Digi "Burlesque Bessie"  from the Pin Up Girls series which I have coloured in Sepia using the green as an accessory with my copics.  I have also used  Spellbinders Decorative Labels One and Labels One which are available for pre order in the store here.  Also used are some of the elements from Card Kit #4 which are fabulous value for money along with extra flowers from my own stash.  Bec is adding new kits all the time so check them out here.  

I have also used a free sentiment which is available as a download on the challenge blog here.  If you look in the right hand side bar there are lots of others as well. ( Don't forget if you use them give credit to Bec.)

Thanks for dropping by, happy crafting.
