Monday, Monday....

Hi everybody!
Just a quick post today, been having problems with my computer und want to get this done before it collapses again!
First, some pictures from this morning, at sunrise:


I have had another try at the FSC shabby chic challenge, I'm not sure this one is the right style either, but I like it! The owl is a LaBlanche stamp which was been stamped with archival black, embossed, and then brushed with some perfect pearls in gold and blue to give some colours to the feathers. I fussy cut it, and then mounted him on a panel of corrugated card, which had been painted and glittered. I cut away the branch he was originally sitting on, and gave him a festive one, to fit to his hat.



 
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

Recovering today after an all day fair yesterday, only one left to go. Sympathies for your PC problems. I was cursing Blogger he other day, it totally hung up and I couldn't do anything.
