Animal magic of the Quirky variety.

Yes it's reminder time already, you have until Saturday 26th to play along with Lyn's animal magic challenge, and any animals are allowed (birds too).
I think this image and sentiment from one of our sponsors, Bugaboo, is so funny I just had to show you. I've seen Christmas biscuits and stacks of "tins" (well rapidly shrinking plastic tubs these days) of chocolates already in the Coop shop!
This set is called Halloween Christmas Owl Trio, and is a bargain, use it with or without the sentiment.
This is a one layer card.

These cuties have fluttered into the following challenges:
Addicted to stamps - make your mark (Wed)
Crafty Gals - anything goes (Wed)
I love Promarkers - Autumn (Wed)
My time to craft - owls (Sat)
Creative Card Crew - Fall (Tues 29th)
Creative fingers - #93 anything goes

It had to be followed by a Christmas card really, and I used Snowflake Silhouette Reindeer for this card, the image is shadowed with lilac Promarker and covered with glitter film available from Little Clair. I die cut a fancy frame  out of glitter paper using a Spellbinders card creator set, and the words with an Xcut set. I added a gem star and some Crafty Ribbons ribbon.

Hop on over to Quirky Crafts challenge blog to see some more gorgeous examples, and to play along and maybe win a prize from one of our three wonderful sponsors.
