Fabulous Friday - Owl ways love One another :-)

Helloo everyone.  How's it goin' ?

Have you had a fabulous week?

We are on our way back from Canada's  Wonderland theme park.  We took the girls down for a quick break, as Andy had taken a few days off work.  I'm not really one for theme parks, but I take a good book and chill out while they are all screaming their heads off on the roller coasters :-)

Today starts a new challenge over at Polkadoodles.  This fortnights theme is Add some Embossing. Now, that could be heat embossed or dry embossing, or however you want to emboss :-)

I decided to get out the Twiggy & Toots collection again, I just love these owls.

For my embossing element, I took the striped paper and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  I inked up a Darice Woodgrain embossing folder, using my brayer and then put that through, therefore accentuating the embossing.

I layered up the pre-coloured owlies off one of the Design sheets, which is also available as a single digi download sheet.

For the inside, using the same papers and a second embossed sheet, and a little stamped owl to finish off the message panel.

Love the depth you can get by layering up these images.  All the layers have inked edges and used CTMH Sorbet to do all the inking.

Every element is from this wonderful collection.  I love those ticket sentiments.

Now it's your turn to get creative and head over to the challenge blog.  Remember, you don't have to use Polkadoodles products to enter our challenges.  You can enter HERE.

  1. Great idea to use stripes and ink the embossing folder. It creates interesting texture and style. Great card (as usual).

  2. Adorable card! I love the images and how you layer everything. Sounds like a fun few days even if you were just chilling and reading while the rest were screaming. I like some rides but no longer do roller coasters and such. I'm a more sit, relax and look ride person like some of the ones at Disney World. LOL

  3. Those owls are adorable and your design is amazing. I love how you popped up all of those layers.

    I remember taking my kids to Canada's Wonderland. I took my first roller coaster ride. At the end, my son, in amazement, asked me, "Mommy, was that you screaming?"

  4. Such an Adorable card! I love the color combo and precious little owls.
    Such a fun design and as well as the details!
    Have a wonderful day my friend,

  23. Hello
    Want to drop a note to thank you for your sweet comments. They mean a lot to me that you have taken the time to stop by. I have not been on the computer much. As I am caregiving for a dear friend who had Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Every day her fragile body is deteriorating. I have not ever seen someone dying right in front of me. All I can do is just keep her comfortable, encourage her and trust the Lord to be her comfort and joy. So please do not be dismayed, when I am unable to stop by your blogs and leave some love.
    Your project/card is amazing and look forward to stopping by when I can. Have a wonderful day and even better week.
    In His Joy


I would like to thank you for stopping by my blog today. All your comments are really appreciated. Happy crafting everyone and have a great day.
