Sweet Owl

Afternoon all from a very wet and dismal Kent!
First of all I'd like to say a big 'hello' to my two new followers and welcome to my blog.
It's been such a horrible wet day, I was supposed to go into town today but to be honest one look at the weather had me doing the cleaning instead!!
I have had a lovely couple of days, it was my birthday on Friday and when I had a quick peek at the blogs (as I always do over my breakfast!) I saw I had been picked as the winner at the Card Crafters Circle so that really was a good start to my day!! I had lots of gorgeous cards and pressies and even though I had to go to work all the lovely ladies made sure I had a good day.
I spent some of my birthday money on 5 new packs of First Edition papers from the Glitter Pot on a very good deal which arrived yesterday so I spent a good few hours having a play with them -you will be seeing a lot of them over the next few weeks I think!!
The first card I made is this one with the Sweet Owl pack-I loved the little owl on one of the sheets so decided to use him on my card. You can't really tell from the photo but I cut him out twice and decoupaged him so he stands out a little. I used some more of the gorgeous sheets from the same pack and layered one with a fancy edge white card I had in my stash. I added a chipboard flower, some card candy, a greeting and some ribbon I recently bought and thought he would make a cute Valentines card- here he is.

I would like to enter him into the following challenges:
Allsorts challenge 193 - Valentines
Creative Inspirations challenge 200- Sent with Love
Songbird challenge13 - Hopelessly Devoted to You
Totally Papercrafts challenge 153 - Valentines/Love
Lisabdesigns challenge - Love
The squirrel and the fox challenge 37 - Love
Fab n Funky challenges 157 - Valentines/Hearts

I hope you all have a smashing week, fingers crossed that we all stay clear of any more snow.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
