Mid-way Reminder

Good morning to you all, hope you had a lovely weekend!  We had a great time at the Agricultural Show on Saturday Dave's daughter, SIL and grandchildren came back and we had a BBQ and played in the garden.  Yesterday Dave and I went for a canal walk it was beautiful really pretty and so peaceful.  Its so nice to have a BBQ everyday which we have been doing and eating outside just what summer should be like!  You lucky people in climates where you can do that, here in the UK its a rare treat!!

Today I am posting a reminder that it is the mid-way mark in our challenge Die-ing for it over at A Little Bit Crafty.  Here is my card I made for it:


Mmmm think it looks a bit wishy washy personally!  With all this beautiful weather I have been struggling to craft very much as I would rather be doing something than stuck inside in my craft room! The image is a Saturated Canary Owl Always Love You which was a freebie with your order a while ago.  I coloured her with my Copics.  I have used Spellbinders Large and Scalloped Circle dies, MB Corner Bow and the bird cage is a die cut free with an order from Dies to Die For - thank you!  Ribbon and heart from The Ribbon Girls. You have about anothe two weeks to enter the challenge and there are some fab prizes up for grabs, you don't have to enter a card it can be anything crafty as long as you have used a die on it!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi
Robyn's Fetish - Things with Wings
That Craft Place - Ribbon and/or Lace
The Squirrel and The Fox - Use Something Spooled
Crafty Friends - Inspired by a Song will it will have to be I will Always Love you by Dolly Parton as the image is called Owl Always Love You!

Thank you so much for looking today! Have a wonderful day whatever you are doing! Take care xx
