Wise Old Owl

Hello bloggers!   It is time for the last die release of the year!  Like September's, it is a bit smaller but has some really great themes included.  As always, I will be giving away one set of each of the dies.  You just need to leave a comment to be included in the drawing.  Please make your name memorable so there is no confusion when the winners are drawn and posted.  The best way to do this is to add a funny alias (ie, crazy cat lady) or add the name of your city to your name (ie, Sally in Solihull), something to that effect.  The winners will be drawn and posted on the afternoon of Nov. 11th.
   I thought I would start off this launch with a fun set called Wise Old Owl.  I have been asked so many times to do some owls and finally got the chance!  This set has a bold owl, two "owl" sayings and a large branch included.  Just a little sneak peek at one of our new 3D embossing folders that is being released too!  If you like this one, just leave a comment on this post.  I will be back at 12 noon for the next post.  All for now, Sue x

Lol. How clever and detailed is this owl. Your new folder is just perfect for your little guy. Owls are what nightmares are made of in our daughter's world so should I be a cruel mummy and send a card like this for her BIG 40 next year lol maybe not.
Watch the numbers now rise from 40's to 60's now there's a free die up for grabs!!!!! I'm loving the new collection especially the 'kind of male' theme. Looking forward to more brilliant samples today xxx

Jen said...

Love the fact that many of the new dies are so useful for men's cards as they are always a problem.

Good luck to everyone on the last blog launch of the year.

Sandma's Handmade Cards said...

This is such a fabulous card June and I love everything about it. The Owl looks great and it’s most unusual to see matching die cut sentiments in such a great font. The embossing folder works really well in the background and the touch of green gives your card the perfect finish. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
