As wise as an owl, sizzix style!

Hi folks and a late post from me tonight....I really should be making tea but have just snuck away to update this.  Busy day today, mega food shop this morning and then a little boy home from school for lunch and a pal around this afternoon. 
I don't know where the day has gone. 
I also had a mad dash out this evening to pick up a new printer as mine gave up the ghost yesterday after one of my boys had been using it!

Today's card I am sharing is the one I made for my pal Irene who had a birthday at the weekend.  She has been helping me with my crocheting so it seemed only fitting to use this wise bird for the card.

I do love this sizzix die, I've also used a couple of embossing folders and googly eyes too.  Clean and simple again with a colour scheme that matches her room. 

Last night I had a bit of a mare with my baby hat again....took out more than I left in!  At this rate I could have crocheted at least another one.  Sometimes the instructions really are not very clear for a beginner....but I am determine to get there.

Anyway short tonight as I better get the tea sorted then I might just get around to unpacking my new toy!
Have a super evening and I promise I'll be back a little earlier tomorrow.
