Little Owl

My son and I had a great time on Saturday at the Science Day at the University of Derby. The highlights were the meerkats (so cute but a bit smelly) and the owls. My son was thrilled to hold a Little Owl so, in honour of the occasion, here’s an owl card made using the new stamp set, Forest Friends, from the Mini Catalogue which is active from 1st April.

On a crafting note, owls are really popular at the moment, so I'm delighted to see this set in the new Mini Catalogue! 

I’ve mixed the old with the new here, using the Fall Flowers Designer Series Paper and the On Board Lots of Letters chipboard pack. But don’t forget that these retiring products are still available and, what’s more, all the chipboard products are currently 25% off! Click here for details.

And, oh look – there’s a felt flower! I like those a lot... but you knew that, didn’t you?

Cardstock: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
