Happy wet, rainy, damp Thursday, everyone! Yesterday whupped my butt....I haven't had a bad day like that in a long time! No stamping time, either! But today is a new day and while I was looking for a card to mail out, I came across this card that I made a few weeks ago but never posted, so I'll share it today:
I'd seen several cards where the Swirly Scribbles die was used to make a wreath or a pumpkin; this one started out as a pumpkin but I just couldn't make it work, so I paired it with a banner from the Time of Year hostess set and the little acorn and oak leaf, and that worked much better! The diecuts were cut with Pumpkin Pie, Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango cardstocks, and the banner was stamped in Old Olive. I stamped the fall things in Chocolate Chip and Delightful Dijon and did some fussy-cutting and gluing!!! The whole shebang was mounted on a white square and a Layering Squares diecut, also in Old Olive, then mounted on a card that used the Warmth & Cheer DSP sweater print:
The inside uses the other sentiment from the set: Thinking of You. It's such a warm and cozy creation, don't you think? Out in the mail it goes!
I don't have any pix of Cassidy since I was away, but I have to share one of the highlights of my trip, even though it's not really particularly Scottish! Outside Edinburgh Castle, a group of people had a stand representing some sort of wildlife rescue group (I was so enamored of what I saw, I didn't really pay attention to what it was, LOL!) and they had three owls that they had raised from owlets available for you to hold and stroke! I WAS IN HEAVEN! It was worth the four pounds to have this soft little owl sitting on my arm for a few minutes! I can't even tell you what kind of owl it was, but you can see another striking one behind me, white and black. It was amazing, especially for this crazy bird lady!
And if it looks like I am wearing the same outfit in every picture, I practically was....it was so cold and windy (see my pink earmuffs?) I had to wear my big scarf around my neck to keep warm! At least this day the sun was shining...at least for this moment! Thanks for popping by!
