Back to Monreith

Hello Peeps,
                Just thought I would post this card I made for my Brother, I was
sending him a package and instead of putting a note in, I thought I would
make a card and write in that ( any excuse to make a card lol ). It was a
Quick and easy card to make.

I used my Craft Concepts, Florette Embossing Folder to emboss part of
the design  to represent a branch and used chalks to colour.
I stamped the owl from Stampin Ups Punch Bunch set with Tangerine 
Tango, Rich Razzleberry, and Pacific Point inks, then punched them out
using the Three Step Owl punch.I gave the middle Owl googlie eyes and
attached them to my card using foam pads.
The sentiment is from LOTV, mounted on top of one of the stamps from the
Four Frames set from SU, using Pumpkin Pie ink.

I think this is a cute card, but I know my brother wont be impressed, and it will
probably go straight in the bin, however I enjoyed making it and as they say
"its the thought that counts".

I am off back to Monreith tomorrow, so think I will struggle to use the internet
as it is via a dongle. Jim my hubby, says he is going to shin up the telegraph
pole opposite our static caravan and hook us up a phone line so we can get
broadband lol, well he is ex BT.
Wonder if I would be allowed my stash inside H M Prison.
