All Kinds of Owls!
For some reason all three cards I made today were owl cards. I didn't really plan it that way, but it turned out that way. :) I made the first one as a good-bye card for a friend of mine and her family. They are moving to Georgia. Her husband is in the Army and he is being stationed there. I used the Cricut Lite cartridge, Hoot 'n' Holler for this one. I thought the sentiment was perfect and the little owl family couldn't be better for this card. I used the animal crackers paper stack from DCWV for the patterned paper. The second card I made today was for a couple of challenges. The first is today's sketch from 365 Cards and the second is from Doodle Dragon Studios, which is to make a friendship card, using one of Dustin Pike's images. I chose to use the owl image because I had a sentiment stamp that said, "owl be thinking of you today," and I really wanted to use it. I used George and Basic Shapes to cut the ovals that the owl is matted on. The background stamp is from Stampendous. I used the distressed stripes embossing folder on the cream strip of paper for some more texture. I wrote out the "hi friend" by hand and stamped my sentiment on the inside. I really like the monochromatic look. My eye is drawn to the owl because of its orange feet and beak. I just love this image, it is too cute. I really like a lot of Dustin Pike's images, check them out here. My final card for the day was for the Jitterbuggin' challenge this week. This week's challenge was to follow the sketch, make it a children's birthday card, use the color purple, and of course use your Cricut. I used Hoot 'n' Holler on this one again. I also used George and Basic Shapes for the circles. All the paper on this one came from the DCWV Latte stack.
