Have a Hoot at Christmas

I have a simple little Christmas card to share today featuring a stamp I picked up in a charity shop...it's by Joanna Sheen. I coloured 'Hoot' using watercolour pencils, then cut him out using one of my circle Nesties. I embossed a piece of green card using a Tim Holtz/Sizzix embossing folder, then distressed all of the edges a little. The sentiment stamp came in the set with 'Hoot'.

This is such a great image. My daughter and grand daughter love owls...so I am always on the lookout for owl stamps...but I have never been lucky enough to find one at a charity shop!
Have found lots of other images, but never owls!

Your embossed green TH panel looks great here and the sentiment is perfect!

Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph Days Challenge. Sorry I am so late with this visit and comment. It is taking much longer than I thought to get round to everyone!
