Simon meets Whimsy

Evening everyone! Hows your week gone? Not long till the weekend! Wohooo! I've made a really fun card to show you this evening!

I got the delicious DCWV Green Stack recently and decided today I'd stroked it enough and was time to play! The first thought when seeing the papers was that this adorable Whimsy Owl would just go perfectly-I think this owl is just the coolest owl image ever! The layout for the card is from Simon Says Challenge-tis Heidi's birthday today (Happy Birthday Heidi!!!) and there's a special prize for this weeks winner (I live in hope!). Am also entering this over at A Spoonful of Sugar as their theme this week is distressing, Practical Scrappers whose theme is stamps and Whimsy Challenges-they're theme is 'touchy feely' and over at Pollycraft Monday they want to see our animal creations!

Stuff: Whimsy Owl available here coloured with copics, DCWV The Green Stack available here (and on sale atm!), core'dinations cardstock, sewing machine, jute ribbon available here, mcgill and xcut flower punches, woodware grass punch, spacers available here, bling from stash, tim holtz distressing tool, distress ink in broken china.

Did you notice the cute clouds? They're actually from the Green stack too-that paper is such a fun collection-I just cut it out and went crazy with the silicone glue. hehe. Well that's it from me today, and I'll be back tomorrow with the my Stamp Something dt card so please come back and see me! Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you might leave-I love reading them and it makes me feel like i'm not just waffling onto myself! Huggles xxx

P.S. I mentioned earlier that I have 2 brand new copic ciao pens in light grape and green gray that are duplicates that I'd like to swap if you have any duplicates-just email or leave a comment otherwise I guess I'll pop em on ebay so I can get some newies. Thanks!
