I wish my holidays weren't going by so quickly :(

I really can't believe how quickly my four days off is going, I am having so much fun hanging out, crafting, reading and doing  all the other things people do when on holidays. After this break I don't have time off till October which for me is major, I hope I don't go completely mad at work. Tomorrow I have decided I am going to my favourite scrapbooking shop, I don't have too much money to spend but it will still be fun going there.

 I made these cards  last night, at the moment I have got a thing for owls, I just love them. For the first card I used a blue wood grain background. I punched out the hearts and cut out the stems free hand. The owls were cut out from patterened paper and adhered to the card with foam mounting tape to add dimension. I have put the same sky paper I used for the hearts on the inside. I have to admit I am really happy with the way this card turned out, its really simple but I like the overall CAS look of the card.

The second card was used making similar papers. I cut out the stem free hand and curled it at the end so that the stem looks like its coming out of the paper. I also used alpha stickers on this card which is something I haven't done in a long time. I had so much fun making these two cards, so happy that I got an opportunity to make them on my time off.

The challenges I have included-
Card Patterns-Sketch 103.
Digi doodles shop's best-Anything goes.
Paper crafting journey-Anything goes.
Guylou's Inimitability Digistamps-Anything goes.
Shelly's images-Show us what you got.
Little Claire's Designs-Anything goes.

The Challenges I have included-
