Well Owl Be - Spring has Sprung!

Hi everyone.  A quick post today.

It's Friday, so a new fortnightly challenge over at Polkadoodles this week.  And the theme is Animal Magic. So lets see those creations with animals included this time around.  You have until Friday, April 18th (12 noon GMT) to enter.

I decided to use a couple of CD's again this week.  I made a shaped card by using my Silhouette Cameo Design Studio.

I have layered up the flowers and mushrooms on this pre-coloured image from the Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD.

The owl is from the Sugar Birdies CD and she has been coloured up with pencils.  Adding a little bling to the flowers and owly.

For the inside I just added a little white panel to write on and added a little owl stamp to the one corner.

So, the CD's I used on this card, were.

For the log pre-coloured image, Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD.

For the owly, I used a black and white digi (although also available pre-coloured) from the Sugar Birdies CD.

This card is being entered in the following challenges.

I would like to apologise for my lack of posts this week and the shortness of this one.  A dear friend is walking with the angels now, she passed away last Friday and the funeral is today.  It has been a very emotional week.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
