Missing you and Flying High

Hi there everybody,

I have two cards to share with you today. OK so haven't actually done much of the housework, but there is always tomorrow for that yes?? lol. So here is the first of my cards:
I based this card around the sketch 115 from Sweet Sketch Wednesday
I did rotate the sketch slightly but all the elements are still there. I used various embossing techniques for the background and die-cut the owl from X-cut self adhesive glitter paper. The embossing folders used were one that came as a free gift with a magazine, which I used to emboss the tin foil (to resemble the moonlight in the forest), and a Sheena Douglas folder which I rubbed ink onto before embossing to make the background paper. I then added a penant and some papermania blitters flowers to finish the sketch.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Diecuttin' Divas #322 Camping Critters (owls in the forest)
fussy and fancy #190 Punches/Dies
kort 'o' mania #178 Use different things (trying stamping with an embossing folder)
613 Avenue Create #198 Stamping with an embossing folder
open-minded crafting #18 Just about time (dandelion clock)
FB Monthly Themes for Crafting - Use Tinfoil

My second card to share with you all is this one made for a work colleague who will be leaving us next week:

I used a pre-printed base card, a topper that was free with a magazine, a sentiment I created on the computer and a Bloomer from the papermania Capsules range with a blue adhesive gem in the centre. I also finished with two bright pink butterfly gems.

This card is for the following challenges:
TIOT - Letters or Numbers
MAWTT #48 English Country Garden (full of flowers)
Citycrafter #367 Hashtag City Crafter
SOS #308 Think Pink
allsorts - flower power

 CRAFT #421 Animals

I also have some more stuff I am growing to show you :)
 Curly Kale
 And yup there is still an Acer in there!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog (I would have an update for you on my stitching but I am not sure which one is next lol).
