Happy New Year......

Morning everyone and welcome to a brand new year! I hope you all survived the festivities and are full of the creative spirit!
Today I'm excited to share with you a card I've made as Guest Designer for Stamping Sensations. I was lucky enough to win the November challenge with a Christmas card that can be seen here and won a hamper full of crafty goodies from Be Creative.
The challenge this month is to use Stamps and Dies and here is my card:


The owl stamp is from a freebie set called Feathered Friends that came a couple of months ago with the Creative Stamping Magazine. The die set is by Xcuts and one of my favourites and the leafy flourish is an old one and I'm not sure of the origin!
 I hope you'll take part in this challenge as the prizes are always fabulous and check out the design team for lots of inspiration.
Good luck!

Just saw your message Valerie, no worries, Blogger has an awful lot to answer for just lately !!

Your card is lovely, the way you have framed the Owl's really works so well and Owls always make such happy cards.

Many thanks for being our Guest Designer at Penny Black and More this month and sharing your creativity with us.
