Love is in the air!!

Hi there lovely crafty people, It's all about love, weddings and anniversaries over at Stampotique '153' this week. The lovely Kim is celebrating her 18th wedding anniversary "Congratulations Kim and Hubby" :D
My offering is a puzzle

Literally a puzzle, I had great fun doing this make. A couple of years ago I was visiting a friend whose husband was fitting a new staircase into their hall. I begged for the cutoffs and they kindly gave them to me!! I just loved the shapes and knew that one day I could play with them.
This is the back, where Two sticks are a little scared because the Owls seem to be gathering
 and this is the front, when assembled that is......


 of course you can put them together any way you choose, :D





Below are the two top pieces just as they are when you put them together, which is just how Smile likes it now that Gooseneck has been modified down to his level, he is a very happy boy!!!
 I used acrylic paints with Dylusion ink sprays on the top.
Masks by Crafters Workshop and Tim Holtz
Thank you for looking, hugs Gay x

How clever! I keep eyeing the off-cuts in our garage but have never got further than that. Thanks for the info about the Emerson Q stamps. How odd, I used to buy them from there and then they stopped selling them. Its going to do my piggy bank no good to know I can buy them once again, Jo x
