Owl Always Love You!

Hello friends

Today a simple card with a fun die.
This is It's A Hoot.
A two piece die set, frame and inset and features 10 cute owls.

I've made a quick card by matting dotted paper cut with the frame die
onto brown cardstock. Then I cut both the frame and inset from white cardstock.
I typed out a sentiment French Script and printed it onto matching white cardstock
 - 'Owl always love you!' -
(I know...took me a while to think of that one!)
I die cut that to a tag shape with Back to Basics Tags.
Tied with twine and then layered onto the card front with foam pads.
I'm a fan of owls and these look very cute.

I am away this weekend ...crafting!
I've organised a rather special event for a group of crafters,
a lot of them are new to
Spellbinders and die cutting so I'm really excited about
introducing them to this amazing addiction!
It's a jam packed weekend in a lovely hotel, hours of crafting
and quite a lot of food too!
I'm very much hoping this is the start of similar regular events -
'Crafty Retreats'.
I will keep you posted.
Take care friends and hope you are crafting this weekend too.

    1. Hi Christine,
      I hope your weekend is going well. I would love to do something like that but nothing ever seems to happen down here in
      Cornwall. I love the card. This die has been on my wishlist for quite a while so it's lovely to see an actual card made from
      it. I just ADORE owls and butterflies, so I instantly fell in love with your wonderful creation.

  10. Very cute card Christine. The owls are very endearing.
    Hope you have a great weekend and the weather stays fine for you.

  11. If the venue is anything to go by you'll have a "hoot" of a time (Sorry I couldn't resist) it's a very preety die and you may call it a simple card but it's very effective

  12. A very pretty card. I love owls. Think this will have to go on my wish list.

  13. Hi Christine, A lovely card, great name for the die, and the sentiment is fabulous, I love it !!
    The piccie of the Tudor building looks really lovely, I hope your Retreat goes well, the people will definitely love it.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
