Buzz Owl & Branch Background - DigiStamp Boutique

Hello everyone :o)

Today's card was for a friend to give to her little girl... she loves owls and pink things!  I used the very cute new Buzz Owl from DigiStamp Boutique, which comes as a set of pre-coloured images with a black outline version too.

I layered up one of the pre-coloured owls onto one of the new Branch Backgrounds and printed it out with an extra owl, so I could cut out and pop up the wings.

The papers are LOTV, as are the little tag stamps.  The frame and flower dies are MFT, sentiment stamp from Clearly Besotted, and I added some Doodlebug enamel dots and buttons from my stash.

Tomorrow it's Morgan's 13th birthday... I have NO idea how he's managed to get so grown up - he's now taller than me!  Both Morgan and Dex have got into roller skating this year, so he decided he wanted a roller skating party, which we had last night.  Lots of his friends came... they're all nice lads, but I have to say, teenage boys are a very odd bunch!  I think they had a good night, but it's really quite hard to tell with some of them ;o)

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening!

New cut files from DigiStamp Boutique!

Happy Saturday everyone:o)  Sorry for the long gaps between posts... it'll probably be the same on here for the rest of the year, but will get things back to normal again next year!

Anyway... today's a bit exciting, because I get to unveil a brand new range at DigiStamp Boutique.  Sally-Ann is now creating cut files for use with digital cutting machines.  Here's one of the first ones that should be available to buy very soon.

This one is Snowy Landscape, cut on my Cameo... I've kept my card very simple and quite flat for posting.  Just a bit of glamour dust here and there for a bit of sparkle, and an MFT snowy background stamp (the white ink is Stampin' Up)... finished off with a sentiment stamp from Clearly Besotted.

This version was cut at just under 6", but I also cut another at around 4" and that cut with no problems too.  My plan was to make a few different ones, but Chester was at the vets being neutered yesterday, and they rang me a LOT earlier than I expected, because he was barking and howling the place down!  So I had to go and collect my very wobbly dog at lunchtime... and there went my planned day of crafting.

I don't usually do this, but while I'm here I thought I'd give a fab local company a bit of a mention.  We're trying to be healthier at the moment... bought a soup maker and we're eating more fresh foods.  I found a lovely family business on Facebook, where you can order fruit, veg and salad (they also have freshly baked cakes and breads, but I behaved and didn't order those... ooh and free range eggs, I did get some of them!).  They deliver straight to your door, and I'm so impressed with the huge boxes of fresh goodies we got, it's great value.  So if you're in or around Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster, Worksop, Chesterfield or Derby, have a little look at their FB page HERE.  I'm not on commission lol, it's just nice to support good small businesses isn't it?

See you again soon, hopefully... have a lovely evening :o)
