Happy Love Day Owl Card


Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my last cards! I lack confidence in my cards a lot, especially as there are so many amazing and professional Cardmakers on here! It's easy to feel a bit out of my depth! 

I really wasn't sure on my last card and nearly didn't blog it!

I try to remind myself of how well I do considering how severely ill I am and the conditions I work under! I don't think people realise quite how poorly I am and how much I suffer and struggle with the tinyest tasks each day so should be pretty proud with what I've achieved on here in the last 8 months!

Anyway sorry for rambling on! Lol

This card I've made to give my mum on Valentine's day :-)

I asked her what she likes on Valentine's cards and she text back a one word answer - "owls" lol

I used:

Owl stamp - mag freebie
Fancy pants love story paper and sentiment
Spot paper behind the owl is LOTV
Hobbycraft ric rac and heart punch

I keep finding little red hearts everywhere now lol!

Hope you're having a nice weekend!

  1. Hi Lucy it's normal to feel the way you do about your cards I feel the same way all the time but I do it for me it makes me happy..your cards are gorgeous they really are lots of huggles Sue xxxx

  2. This is gorgeous Lucy, the owl is adorable. I love the papers and fabulous layout.
    Try not to be so hard on yourself. I think your cards are just as beautiful as any others I have seen, it's clear to see how much thought and love you put into making them.
    Take care, Sue xx

  3. Hello Lucy, I thin you are being too hard on your self, this is such a pretty card, I love the owl and your lovely colours.
    You are doing really well, be proud of yourself, hugs Kate x

  4. Hi Sweet Lucy!

    We ALL feel the same chick and are always hard on ourselves. Those who aren't like that frankly have their heads up their bums! Can I say that on a blog? Ooops, I just did I guess?!?!

    Your card is just adorable, and owls are a fave of mine too - your Mum has good taste :) You see, some of us aren't as clever as you - for instance, the ric rac is such a great division point and also the hearts flowing down across your darling owl. It takes skill to think of those details so don't EVER be belittling yourself. Otherwise Nanny McDi might just have to come and sort you out :))

  5. A really beautiful card Lucy, love your colours as well as the beautiful image. Don't ever underestimate how beautiful your creations are. I love them and I know your followers love them....hey I have one on my blog now and thinking of taking it off, it is a hard challenge on kraft and I don't like it, so see we all are critical of our own work.....xxxx ...
