Little Claire's Christmas

Hi there, todays card is a very quick card made with some of the goodies I bought at Summer Crafting in Doncaster a few weeks ago. I fell in love with this gorgeous owl tree stamp from Little Claire's, (in fact I fell in love with quite a few stamps and I've joined Little Claire's monthly stamp club lol)

I've used a shaped and embossed card blank, inked liberally with peeled paint, shabby shutters and forest moss distress inks. I stamped the tree in black ink (mmmmm maybe I should have stamped it in gold .... I'll have to give that a try next time) and decoupaged the adorable little owls that I'd coloured with promarkers and cut out. Talking of adorable, here's a pic of two of my boys. Benji and Barney have a little rest on my bed. Barney is 11 weeks old now and this is the first photo I've managed to take of him that doesn't just look like a black blob lol. He is a bundle of fun and although he looks very sweet and innocent in the photo he's full of mischief :-)

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Challenge up your life: Christmas in summer
Little Claire's: best friends

Thanks for popping by, have a good Monday

  1. Shucks. The one stall I didn't get to browse on Saturday was Little Claire's. I would have fallen for this owl stamp too. They are so cute and look great decoupaged. Lovely card design - that embossing looks fab all inked up.
    Now - I'm weakening I think. It's going to be dangerous going down to Gary's to see nine like Barney isn't it? He's gorgeous and Benji looks adorable too.
