Owl always love Summer

Hello my friends,
I sure hope you all had a lovely weekend, relaxing, crafting, or whatever took your fancy. I did a bit of all that, and found some time to experiment with a DIY gelli plate....more about that in a day or two.
My card today is one I made a few weeks ago, but hadn't got round to showing here.

The birdhouse was taken from the pattern in the #1 issue of The Collection by Marianne designs. The pattern can be downloaded for a card, but I made it a lot smaller to add onto my card, raised with 3D dots.

The image is Pipa in summer by LeCreaDesigns, from the Owlies range..coloured with watercolour pencils, and also raised.

The diecut at the bottom is from Joy crafts. It is for embossing and embroidery. I like these because the holes are pricked when cutting it, so just start stitching...great fun.

Sentiment was made on the PC.

I wanted to use this stamp as our summer days are now drawing to an end....oh we are still having lovely warm weather, but the heat of summer has somewhat subsided and the autumn feel is in the air, so those  'lazy, hazy days of summer" will soon just be a memory.

I am entering this in the following challenges.
CDAC seasonal fun...What happens in your area during Jan - March

No matter which challenges #7...Anything goes"
Stamping Sensations challenge...The great outdoors

Thanks for stopping in, I hope you have a great week and I'll see you tomorrow with a DT card. Take care and have fun.
Love Ursula
