Champagne Edger Die and Bird of Prey

Hi Crafters

Have a lovely week off work, had a few days out with hubby and 
some crafting time for preparations for the Christmas Stall in November.
Couldn't completely switch off work still had to do 
some payments and go to the bank for them for the office. 

Went to a small Birds of Prey and Animal Park near Bridlington
Arrived in time to see the super birds flying, 
even had a huge Owl sat next to me on the bench.   
So soft to touch their feathers.
To make the day even more special I finally got one of wish list to actually have
a owl on my arm, and this one was having dinner.


Here's a new card I made from a new die I treated myself to.
From Creative Expressions Die Champagne Edger - Paper cuts collection.


I'm very impressed with this die and you can make a 
very simple card using glitter card and ivory pearl card. 
Finish of with peel off sentiment and little stars.
