A hoot of a card!

Good evening, all! Sorry I haven't blogged much this week, I have had some problems uploading pictures to the blog

: fortunately my daughter and her wonderful partner are here for the weekend - he is a Jedi Master of IT and has solved the problem! He is a very noble gentleman!!! So here is one of a set of cards I made a week ago, starring the Woodware Patch an Owl set.

I paper pieced the owl, using LotV Bonnets and Bowties papers (they came free with a mag!) The beak is pieced with a scrap of gold card from stash. I used a snippet of pink card and a Spellbinders Lacey Squares die for the mat.

The sentiment came with the set. I used a stamp from the Winter Gifts stamp set and the matching Tag You're It dies. The tiny flower brads are from stash.

Here's a picture of the 4 cards lying on my ironing board:

One of the great things about paper piecing is that if you use 4 different papers you can easily make 4 cards!!

I hope you've all had a great weekend, with lots of good weather - what a difference a bit of sunshine makes, I see so many people smiling!

Have a great week, and thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Fabulous Mags! One of my fave stamps too.

Did I read the word snippet? Remember you can come and play with us in the Snippets Playground with this - a never mind a bit of back linking.

Hugs, Di xx

Hi Mags! Sorry I have been a bad bloggie friend with my visits. Your set of owl cards is owldorable! (Ooof, that was a bad one, even for me!) They really are fantastic with the detailed paper-piecing you've done! You take care! I'm glad your daughter's partner came to your rescue!! Hugs, Darnell

Hi Mags

Your little owl cards look gorgeous.

I love paper piecing.

Pleased your Jedi Master managed to sort your computer problems out.

Hope you are having a good week.

How different they all look too. I think every one is experiencing the same problem of their reading list only showing one post. Hope it finally gets fixed as I have not had mine working at all for a long time so sorry that I have not been around sooner. hugs Mrs A.

Oooh your wee owl is fab with his fancy wings and body, great idea to use all the different DPs.
I think I need to borrow your Jedi Master to fix my pc ... for some reason mine has lost the ability to play sound even though all the settings look OK grrrr

This is adorable as are all his other three friends.
I shall remember that tip about using the 4 papers and making 4 cards. I need to do more batch baking as they say!
