Retirement card using my favourite Pollyanna Pickering Snowy Owl picture

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your weekend going? Yesterday we went up to London to attend a friend's 60th Birthday party. It was lovely to have a catch up. Today we are meeting our daughter in Southampton. She is starting a new job tomorrow and she wants some new work clothes. I want to treat her to a new work bag.

I can't believe this is the last day of September. I realised if I did one more blog post this month I would do better than I did in August. My friend retired last week and I decided to make her a card.


I made the card this way so that I could use one of the matching inserts. The background paper came from an american paper pad that I have had for a while. The doily's I have had for a while too. I really am trying to use things that are in my stash. 


This has to be my all time favourite Pollyanna Pickering picture of a Snowy Owl it is gorgeous. I still have a few left on the pad from Creative World of Crafts. I used my Spellbinders matting and layering dies to cut the image and the mats I used. 


This is a Spellbinders poppy die I often go back to this die even though I have other poppy dies. 


The picket fence is a Marianne die. The sentiment was cut with a Britannia die. 


I will get this in the post on Monday. It should be nice and flat for posting. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. It is October tomorrow. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
