Festive Spirit at Crafty Individuals

I hope your Christmas Eve is filled with satisfaction as you finish any preparations for the big day tomorrow.

 I have made a card using a new Alice Palace stamp called ‘Jolly Owl’, for the Crafty Individuals challenge.
A festive card in red and green with the background mount from my supplies.
The image was stamped onto a gelli print made sometime ago and the letters were coloured in with Graph’It markers. Mr Owl was given some distress paint and ink markings, a gold grown and a green bowtie.
The flowers and star are from Hobby Craft and I used a CI text stamp on the star to add some texture to it.

I shall be back tomorrow with a scheduled piece for Country View Challenges.

My family are arriving soon and we will sit down for a Christmas Eve meal together to begin our festivities and all meet again tomorrow to share our gifts. I so love this time of year.

Have fun whatever you have planned for the next few days.

Gorgeous! On my monitor which probably needs tuned, I see red and a gorgeous shade of pink! I love the combination!
Beautiful card and great image!

Hope you had a great meal.

Sweet card and something a little bit different. Hope your Christmas went well, ours did too, but the weather has been frightful. About 2 in of ice on everything, and then last night an additional 4 in of snow. What is that saying...beauty is only skin deep? Many still without power. I'm good, but no Internet. Using my daughter's.
