I kept looking at the lovely Aviary set in the mini catalogue and couldn't decided whether to get this stamp set or not so I left it to the last minute and in the end I caved in - it was the cute little owl that did it!!! He is so adorably cute. The day this stamp set arrived on my doorstep I couldn't wait to make a card and of course I just had to use the owl. Here he is in all his cuteness...Now I can say this card was not my original idea and I had it saved on my laptop but it didn't contain a watermark so not sure who to give credit to. If anyone out there knows of the original creator please pass on my thanks. I did change it slightly from the original but the concept is the same.
Anyway, I have chosen a colour that I have never used before "Marina Mist" and have teamed it up with Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy and River Rock. I can say that I did get some input from my lovely friend Tammy so I know that she will be waiting for this one to make it's appearance here (smiling at you, Tammy!!).
It is looking promising for some sunshine today after having two weeks of constant rain any little bit would be good. Not sure how long it will last though but I can say that it has been good weather to stay indoors and reconnect with my cardmaking.
