Willow Sketchie owl

Over on the Willow Sketchie Challenge there's a lovely simple sketch to follow......have used with one of Sharon's gorgeous owl downloads.....this time a xmas one......if you've never seen her lovely hand drawn downloads do go and have a look at Willow Design Stamps.....they are all just soooooooo cute.Decided to go for a very simple card.....in line with the sketch....none of my usual overdosing on layers!!!!.....but do like the effect......and as Creative Card Crew also want a xmas card.......they can have this one as well!!! Little owl has been watercoloured with SU crayons............and a glimmer of distress ink round the edge.........Papermill card.........Anita's glittery snowflakes..........Dovecraft bottle top......PM holly brad and gems in centre of snowflakes........Sakura souffle pen for faux stitching.........ribbon from stash.
And my pile of xmas cards is now getting higher and higher!!!!
Had a wonderful morning!!........took my car to tyre centre as one front tyre looked a bit worn.....not only did it need replacing......so did spare.......and needed tracking done........one hour later.....£97 poorer.....bread and water for dinner I think.

Oh No!...How much craft stuff could you have bought with £97?
But hey...you would have had to carry it home on the bus!

Cars who needs them! well we can always shop online lol. They can sure be guaranteed to empty the purse quicker than any crafter!! Love your card, will have to invest in that image. The Ho Ho Ho cap is excellent.

Hi Jacky
Such a clever Christmassy creation. How lovely. I am specially impressed that you are so advanced and making Christmas cards. Try as I might I just can't think 'Christmas' in August. No I am definately in Trinity mode, Advent is so far off to me. Sorry to hear about your car, they just eat money don't they.
Kind regards
Mayjasper
