Owl Eyed

Good afternoon
Mt Crafty Friends, Follower and Visitors

Another gorgeous day here in Warrington, although not been out much
to enjoy it.  I did make the most of the sunshine yesterday as I 
decided to take my crafting into the garden, so armed with my
Grand Calibur, card stock, Easel die, Poinsettia die and Sentiment die
off I went.  I must say it was a little hard going on the old arm using
the Grand Calibur as I have not used it for months since I have been
using my E-Bosser but still old faithful did it's job and I managed
to die cut all the components for 12 Christmas Cards and got some
rays as well- Not a bad afternoons work, if I say so.

Anyway down to business, today I have made a card using
my prize from Lelli-Bots - the challenge was Use your left
overs- and hey ho I won it!.  Hope you like.


1. I made the card shape by using A4 Cream Card and die cutting
two pieces using the X-cut Extra Large Dies and then joining
together at the top.

2. Then still using the X-Cut dies I chose a smaller die and
using the card stock which came in the kit (Animal Magic
Twit Twoo) from Lelli-Bot, cut the blue card.  The paper
also in the kit was again cut using the next size down die.
Both were then adhered to my card.

3. The ribbon again was part of the kit (as you get everything
in these kits that you require to make a card) and I  placed
it around the top of the card and made a chocolate box
bow to finish. The little owl charm was added to to the
ribbon, just to add a little more interest.

4. The topper again is from the kit as is the little flower
that is under the sentiment and hearts on either side.

And there you have it, a quick and easy card with no
worries about getting all the right elements, as with 
these kits everything is done for you.

Well my Friends, that your lot for today
and as always, Until next time,

Take Care and Happy Crafting
