BugABoo Magical Christmas Harry Potter Owl be home for Xmas Card

Yesterday I got my sewing machine out. In the process of trying to remember how to thread and put bobbin it I managed to break the thingie that helps you thread a needle wand broke the sewing machine needle. The machine is a Montgomery Ward UTP 1980. Had a pkg of Singer sewing machine needles and put a new needle in. Later in the evng I figured out how to thread it as well as get the bobbin thread working.

Created this Christmas card using BugABoo digi, Magical Christmas. Colored the digi with Crayola & some on computer. Used sketch which you can see below. Used a Martha Stewart stars edge punch. Sparkle/shine is the gold glitter cardstock behind the punch stars strip. Embossed with a fav embossing folder of mine, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots.

Stamped Dare 2B Artsy humor sentiment "Owl be home for Christmas!"
