This card was made for my daughter's 13th birthday from her younger brother. My daughter has a real owl fetish and thinks they are 'just adorable'. This topper is by Hunydory 'What a Hoot' collection which I believe came free with one of their magazines. The topper was simply layered onto some patterned paper which was layered onto silver mirri card. I used an inverse corner punch to echo the shape of the topper. The sentiments are also from the topper sheet. I used a Hunkydory shaped card blank and found this most gorgeous ribbon in my stash which I simply wrapped round and tied in a bow - for once I was happy with a bow that I tied first time!
A few words about me...time for an update! I'm a married stay at home mum with 2 children and I'm the right side of 50 (not that there's anything wrong with the other side and God willing I'll find out soon enough!) . I've been making cards for around 10 years now. I started when my daughter began receiving invites to birthday parties when she started pre-school (she's in secondary school now!). My card making goes in phases - I either seem to be very productive or very unproductive! My favourite cards to make are Christmas ones and I love that I found a hobby that allows me to indulge in a little bit of Christmas every day. It's not unusual for me to play Christmas tunes on the hottest day of the year - I think after 13 years my neighbours are used to it!
