Cosy Winter Owl

Sadly, this is my last card as a member of the Incy Wincy design team.  I've had a fabulous time since I joined in February, and made some great friends.  But life has gotten busier for me in the last couple of months, and is going to get even busier with changes in my day job (the one that gets in the way of my crafting) in the new year.  I'm struggling to find the time to be as creative as I like, and I need to ensure that I'm not taking on more than I can cope with.  Something had to 'give', and sadly I've had to cut down on my design team work.

I want to thank all my wonderful teamies, and I just know that all the new girls who are just joining the team from Jan 2012 will have a great time.  I'll still pop along to play the challenges from time to time, and the wonderful Chris has asked me to come back and guest design occasionally.  How could I say no!!!

For my last challenge the theme is Winter Wonderland.  We're sponsored by Meljens who have kindly supplied some digi images for the design team to showcase.  I've used frosty sparkle papers, and added fluffy stuff for the snow on the branch.  This was a really simple card to make, especially as I've not added too much in the way of fuss.  I love the focus to be on the shape, and so didn't want to detract from the card by adding lots of embellishments.

Card Recipe:
Please pop on over to the Incy Wincy challenge blog to see the other creations by the talented design team, and to enter our challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations this week.

I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.
