Stacey's Stamping Stage Curtain Call Act 62Two-Step Owl - What a HOOT!

Happy Holidays everyone. Now that the New Year is approaching, I have made my first non-Christmas card! It felt great! I eyed this cute little owl, for a long time. Finally, I purchased him last month and this is the first time I've used him. I just love his look. He is a little finnicky to work with, but I am sure with time I will get faster. I needed a Thank You card for our friends who looked after Phat Cat while we were away in Florida. So I cased this card. I also drew some inspiration from Curtain Call Act 62 . I added my own little twist of Megness - the lettering is from a sizzlets die I bought a while ago and had yet to use. The branch on the inside is another sizzlets die that I got at Joann's while I was in Florida - I love the prices at that store - I bought this die for $7.99 and I got a set of nesties (classic scallop circles small) for 17.49 - they are 29.99 here! Using dies is so easy and always adds that extra detail that makes people say: "Wow!". Gotta love it.  TFL.

It's been sooooooooooooooooo long!

HI Everyone,
I have been negligent for a long time - my apologies. Since the new school year started, I have not had the same time or motivation to keep posting. This is an early New Year's Resolution - to post three times a week or more. I mean really - in the end, it takes about fifteen minutes and I think it is time well-spent. So today I am posting a card for the PPA72: Winter White. Winter is my favourite season; having been born and raised in Ottawa - our wonderful snowy capital - you learn very early on to embrace winter. So for this card I layered white on white with a little gold and a little glitteriness thrown in! The snowflake is a sizzix die, and I used the Petals a Plenty EF to add a bit of texture. The snowflake is embossed with irridescent ice EP and is very sparkly in real life. The sentiment is from the retired SU set Peaceful Wishes - I sold a lot of my retired sets, but this one I wanted to hang onto. TFL
