Have a hoot on your birthday

Good morning folks.
I finally got my birthday meal out last night, the temporary filling has been fine so far, hope it makes it 'til Monday when they replace the old filling and rebuild the tooth.

Over at the Alphabet challenge blog we have a brand new challenge. This time around the alphabet we've made it to -


So a card or project that moves in some way.
I decided to make a tag slider card for my old neighbour whose birthday it is soon.

As regular readers may remember, I always try to incorporate an owl into Audrey's card, it's a long standing joke between us that started over 10 years ago. This latest image is courtesy of a brand new stamp from Daisy Mae stamps, by Clare Rowlands. She used to make the Molly Bloom ones and then went quiet for awhile before this new release. 
The mechanism was made from a panel of NitWits DP printed on white card following this technique  here. I'd made one a long time ago at craft class but after searching online I found this simple explanation. 
The colour choice is quite masculine but it references the colours of the Owls, Sheffield Wednesday FC, an English soccer team which she supports. You might even see some caps like the owl is wearing at their matches!
I stamped the greeting to be revealed with a mix of Paper Smooches and Woodware greetings and the tag has a freebie greeting- Many Happy Returns of the day, stamped in black.

For more moving inspiration, check out the rest of the team here.
