You hoos

Hello!!!  So how was your day?!?  Mine was pretty busy... we went to the cegep (the equivalent of college) with my oldest son and I think he has found where he wants to go!!!  So now it will be a question of applying and hoping that he is accepted...

I didn't get much crafting time this weekend... so really needed to get my ass in gear when we got back.  And still managed to make a little extra... it's all the fault of Stamping Dragon's FB group

They had a little challenge to share what we had that was recycled from something else and that was now in our scraproom...  And well I showed beer bottle cap, some ribbon and a little bell from Lindor Easter chocolates and a little tag... but this didn't  stop there... they then asked that we create something with one of the items that we had showed... Well... I could have said no... but I'm always up for a good challenge!!!

So I went shopping (well... I'm always good for some shopping as well lol... I needed an image from them to do this challenge right?!?  yup right that's my excuse and I'm sticking by it!!!).  I found a fabulous precolored image called You Hoos Owl that was just perfect to make the Christmas card for my dad and Stepmom.  So Guylaine if you are reading this... please STOP!!!!

So here's my card.  I decided to make another twisted easel card this way I get to play again over at Scrapbook blessings.  This is the closed look

The paper is from Pebbles - Welcome Christmas.  I used my scallop and large circles from Spellbinder as well as my Label 13 for the inside sentiment.  I have used the bell and the ribbon from the chocolate.

Here's a closer look at the precolored digi that I used stickles on.
Isn't he just adorable?!?

Here's a look at the opened version.  This time I opened it the proper way ;o)
I used a great sentiment from Create with TLC for the inside.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Stamping Dragon's FB group - for the recycled item
  2. Scrapbook blessings - Twisted easel card
  3. Pink gem challenge blog - More than one fold
  4. Jinglebelles rock - Not a creature was stirring
  5. The paper shelter - Easel card.
That's it for me for today!!!  Hope you had fun and I will be back tomorrow.
