I've had a pretty awful weekend. Jabbed myself in the eye with a tube of toothpaste and ended up at the a torn cornea and a patch over my left eye. Been off the computer all day yesterday. (Am I ever going to catch up when the universe is conspiring against me?) Tried blaming hubby for my misfortunes but he's having none of it. Why can he not see that had he put the top back on the toothpaste I wouldn't be sitting here in an eye patch? Makes perfect sense to me!
Here's my card featuring these adorable owls from Chocolate Baroque's latest Christmas stamps: Snowy Scenes. Christmas trees, firs, pines would have been the obvious choice for this fortnight's theme but I'm going with a bendy tree and part of a tree trunk. And why not?
|Love the blue-brown combo. I've inked the background with TH Faded Jeans |
and Tumbled Glass, with a little Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap at the bottom.
The bendy tree is from CB's Fantasy Woodland. The snowflakes and the sentiment
are both from the Snowy Scenes set. To finish: little bling and some ribbon.
|I used GI and Promarkers to colour the image:|
