Hoot of a Birthday

Hi there,

Today's post is for the Desert Island Crafts Challenge. I love how they have an itinerary to follow. This particular one was quite challenging at first but then at the last minute I had a brain rush and I managed to whip up this tag. This is my first proper tag I have made and it was a 'hoot' to make.

I also want to team my tag up with the Crafty Cardmakers Paper Piecing Challenge. They also post great challenges that make you try new things.

Here it is;
Stamp, magazine freebie
Quick cuts star die
Platinum Stickles
Spellbinder Blossom Nesties
Echo Park Dots and Stripes Christmas Paper

I am entering this tag into DICC #65 and I have used no.3 owl, no.4 tree ( a branch of one), no.5 stars, no.6 don't be square and no.7 sparkle.

I also wish to enter my tag in the CraftyCardmakers Paper Piecing Challenge #104. I have paper pieced the wings, part of the body, the nose and the eyelids. 

Thanks for dropping by, I hope you like it.
Cheers Nic


  1. What a cute creation. Love how the paper piecing on the owl tones in so beautifully with the spotty background.
