Birthday Owl and Spiders!

My summer holiday is over!

So sad to be going back to my regular day job tomorrow, I like being a "free spirit" flitting here and there with plenty of time to read, garden, craft and socialise.

Before I become totally disciplined again, I wanted to share a couple of birthday cards.

     Owl Occasions 
 This stamp has been available for the past 4 months, but cannot be ordered after this coming Thursday (31st January) so ring or email me promptly if you think you too would like to own this one. 128003 $37.95 for clear mount, 128000 $46.95 for wood mount.

#3 grandson, who will be 3 on February 14th, has a bit of a 'thing' for that owl character in a TV show. (I'm being slightly cautious in case there is a copyright issue). I'm hoping my card featuring the Party banner, branch, balloon and owl from Owl Occasions and the "3rd Birthday" from Memorable Moments is a big hit with him.
Memorable Moments was one of the gifts I came away with from last year's convention in Canberra, and I've found it very useful with all those numbers, plus an rd, nd,th, and st as well as Happy, Anniversary, Birthday and a label outline. It is on page 139 of the annual catalogue if you'd like to take a closer look.
Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise and Lucky Limeade are the colour choices for this card.

Jar Of Spiders

I had lots of fun creating this card for #1 grandson's birthday, exactly one week after his cousin's.

I used three stamp sets for this one, and DSP Comfort Cafe, which is in the Annual catalogue and available till the end of June this year.
The spiders and web come from Googly Ghouls, page 27 of the Holiday catalogue, finishing this week.
The jar is from Perfectly Preserved, page 29 of the Holiday Catalogue (but this one is carrying over, at least for another few months).
The 'happy' on this card is from a cute Hostess set on page 200 of the Annual Catalogue, Wacky Wishes, yours free to purchase with your hostess dollars if your order reaches $300.
The number and 'birthday' are again from Memorable Moments and I used the frame stamp from that stamp set and the matching size in Framelits to hold the greeting. Crumb Cake and Midnight Muse were the main colours, with a touch of Cajun Craze
Thought you might like to see a close up view.
