Loving Friend ATC

Oh it is incredibly wet today! I thought we were supposed to be getting a bit of proper Winter weather in the UK, but apparently only a couple of days is enough - then back to wet and cold!! Grrrr. I am currently watching Mr Blackbird in the garden though - he is certainly makig the most of the wet weather. I guess it helps when the householder pops soe mealworms out in the garden for him to eat as well though lol. Just hoping that little miss Thrush also decides to join us as I haven't seen her for a few weeks now.

Anyway, still in the love theme for February it was mine turn to choose a theme for our ATC's this month. I am trying to use the stash that I receive from each lady to make the ATC to send back to them, and so this is what I created this time round:

I used white card cut to 3.5x2.5" as is standard for an ATC. I then stamped two hearts at angles onto this card, using blue pretty colour ink. The stamp was a free gift with a magazine and I adn't used it before so thought this was a good opportunity. I then used some vellum that I received to overlay these stamps. (This was the only part of the received goodies that I used on the ATC - but it is something lol - the other bits were either slightly too large, or didn't quite go, but I will make a card with those bits instead!).
The image is from a honey and hugs paper pad and I die-cut the owls from the patterned paper using the second smallest scalloped heart X-cut nesting die. I also cut a few more to send with the ATC. To finish I added a heart border peel-off and a heart to the centre of the image (which was from the border peel-off).
I would like to enter this ATC into the following challenges:

We went out for a walk last weekend and saw some lovely Tufted Ducks on one of the lakes! Not great photos as I do not have a zoom lens but here they are:

They are so handsome! We also saw a Gadwall pair but I didn't get a photo of them.

Thanks for looking,
