Pollyanna Pickering - Little Owl Birthday Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? Well yesterday  I walked out of work for the last time - I am now officially retired . I do have very  mixed emotions but I am sure that I have done the right thing. Being able to choose when to go on holiday will be a big thing.

I have been a bit intermittent with card making since the wedding. I went back to my favourite Pollyanna Pickering images for some inspiration.


I added some paper from a Creative World of Crafts pad. 


To match the image I added  die cut trees using the Winter Trees dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. 


This image is from a Pollyanna Pickering sketch pad. The Little Owls are so cute. 


Here are all the cards and presents I received yesterday. I had been working there for over 20 years. Some of the cards are very inventive I might be stealing some of the ideas for my own card making. 


This is another card for my stash owl cards are always popular. 


Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
