New Home card for Polkadoodles

Friday is new challenge day over on Polkadoodles this week we were asked to make a New Home card - pop over there and see all the lovely samples from the design team
I used these owls from the Sugar Birdies CD, and made them into an easel card. The stamp is by Hero Arts, and I gave the birdies a bit of bling...

Whilst tidying the house today, I found two forlorn Christmas decorations that I had totally overlooked, and five cards sitting festively on a shelf I had passed dozens of times and not noticed.
I am quite glad that here in the UK, we only really decorate the house for Christmas, although when I am in the US, I love seeing all the decorations coming out for the different holidays. If I decorated like this, the house would be a total mish-mash of seasons - you would be bumping your head on Valentines hearts in August, falling over pumpkins in February, and rescuing the Easter bunny from the garden in June.
At risk of repeating myself endlessly, you have until noon GMT (7am EST) on Saturday to get your names down for the various prizes
I need help - voting will start on the cards that were entered on day one of the party today. PLEASE vote for your favourites. I am not sure how many votes you can make, but all the people who took the time and effort to show us their creations would really appreciate a vote from you - scroll down to the post to leave your vote

Whoo doesn't love cute owls, just adorable, thank you for sharing. And yes it can be a bit daunting here in the US changing decorations for all seasons, but they look so cute and make everything new and fresh

Love this darling card and wish I could remember how to make this design. the owls are soo cute, and I am LOL about "bumping your head on Valentines hearts in August, falling over pumpkins in February, and rescuing the Easter bunny from the garden in June". It's usually true that we find things months later... whatever the season, something is forgotten.
Makes life interesting, they say!!!

Don't worry. I asked if they would vote on my craft forum and on Facebook for whichever card they liked best and they have been voting since, so at least there will be a winner - or a tie.

Enfys, Welcome to my world. We are constantly tripping over holiday decorations for which that particular holiday has been over for two months. LOL! Kids love to hang on to holidays more than we do!

Your card is adorable. I really love the bling. It is the perfect touch. I want to get some of those CD's. They look like so much fun! Thank you for an amazing week! I hope you recover soon! LOL!
