Evening all.
Just popping by to post a card I made for the birthday of an old friend and ex- neighbour.
It's a bit of a longstanding joke that the cards I make for Audrey are owl themed, mainly because of her allegiance to Sheffield Wednesday FC, nicknamed  the Owls.
I made one quite a while ago but can I find it?
Well I just had to make another, so here it is.

I used the layout from this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge, using the blue and white colours of  The Owls! The owl here is from Paper Smooches Chubby Pals and I also included a few hand drawn leaves. Everything was coloured with Copics before fussy cutting. The frame and base card were embossed with a CC texture folder, the frame cut by extending a MFT square die cut frame. The sky was a scrap of DP from the bits box.
I needed it to be a bit of a quick make as it needs to get in the post as its here birthday next week and to get to the post box from home is a major expedition!
Anyway say it quietly, but she will probably be across at the other side of the steel city watching the red and white wizards on Saturday as Wednesday are away this week. Audrey is mad keen on watching sport and will even go to non league matches if the major teams haven't got a match.

I'd like to join in over at -
