A beautiful Owl by Pollyanna Pickering

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? We have got to hump day half way to the weekend.

Here is a little story: before Christmas I ordered a few bits from Create and Craft. Part of the order arrived well before Christmas but the second part didn't arrive. I had a look at the website and I kept meaning to do something about it but I didn't quite manage to get round to it. Well out of the blue on Monday the package was delivered. It did look like it had been around a bit but the contents were fine. I had ordered some toppers and inserts with images by Pollyanna Pickering from the Creative World of Crafts. So yesterday I had a bit of a play.

I must admit to being rather fond of the image of this owl. The first time I saw it was as a jigsaw. With the mats and layers I tried to reflect the colours in the image. 

I used my favourite Happy Birthday die designed by Sue Wilson. 

This is a beautiful image it was lovely to do as a puzzle. I changed my original design so I could keep Pollyanna's signature visible on the image. 

I made some poppies with the Exquisite Poppy dies and Olive Branch die both designed by Sue Wilson. I do like poppies on cards. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
