Tis the Season to be JOLLY ...
{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #57}

This is another DT Project for a challenge over at DS4J's blog.  The theme for Challenge No.57 is THERE'S SOMETHING MAGICAL ABOUT CHRISTMAS.  

I have created a twisted easel card using the talented Margaret's TWO WIT TWOOO digi from Digistamps4Joy on it. You can find the TWO WIT TWOOO digi here at the DS4J's shop.

Mrs Owl really looks a bit under the weather.  Lets hold thumbs that if she realises Its The Season to be Jolly, she will put a smile on that dial.  The image was paper pieced and with FabScraps design papers and parts were coloured with H2O's.  The other  design papers are from BasicGrey.

So hop on over to DS4J's blog and link your THERE'S SOMETHING MAGICAL ABOUT CHRISTMAS creation to Challenge #57.



So I am off to link these little owls to the following challenges:
Thank you again to all my lovely Followers, old and new, for popping in here and leaving so much kindness.  I always endeavour to return the favour. Don't forget to join my 400 Follower give-away here.
