Elegant Owls Thank You card

Morning and Happy New Year to all my friends, I hope you are all well.   I am thankfully recovering from my last bout of Chest Infection, followed by a Kidney Infection.

I have been dying to share with you all, the news that, I have been accepted to be part of the Digi Stamp Design Team at Little Claire Designs.   I was too ill to take part in the 1st challenge - Which is "OPEN" there is still time to enter the challenge, entry for which you can find HERE.

Each Thursday one of the Design Team, will do a Step by Step, tutorial, today it is my turn to share, my card, which I have called Elegant Owls.

Using Little Claire Design Products:-
Thank You sentiment from Outline Stickers - Vehicles

If you would like to see how I made this card, all the details can be found HERE.  Hope you can visit. Thank You.

Before I go, I would like to apologise for not getting around to doing my Blog Candy, I have now found that the list has disappeared, so I have no idea, who entered.  In the interests of being fair, I wonder if you would mind if I added another Linky Tool and re-blogged the Candy.  Not sure how else to do it girls, I am so very sorry.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Sassy Studio Designs - DTBST#266 - Keep it the Same - Monochromatic
Crafting for All Seasons - CH#94 - Things with Wings
The Paper Shelter - CH#188 - Lots of Layers

I am hoping to catch up with your blogs ASAP, in the middle of trying to do some TV Samples, for Lelli-Bot, who will be on C&C on Tuesday 3rd February at 11am, with no less than 3 Brand New Kits,  hope you can tune in and give Sam your support.

I have missed you all and hope that you are well, love and hugs.
