Owl be !

Owl be sending this cards They turned out awfully cute
Do they look like they're 'sposed to? I don't give a hoot!

Well, Owl be, I got all inspired over at Michelle Zindorf's blog and went on an Owl punching spree. I colored mine with copics instead of sponging ... and played around with the card layout. The biggest adaptation was not having her tree ... so I ended up combining a stampin up silhouette with some branches from a Unity Sympathy set!  I was quite pleased with my ingenuity!  The adaptations went on ... I changed colors and used a different punch for my photo holders.  My sizes are totally irregular.

I really like the white gel pen on the leaves. Looks even better in real life!

Some possible sentiments.

Whoooo Gives a Hoot?  I do          (caring and sharing)
Owl be wishing you a great day     (general purpose, birthday)
A word to the wise ---- Celebrate!  ( graduation? birthday? or retirement?
In the wee hours of the morning ... Owl be thinking of you.  ( caring and sharing)
Feeling like nobody gives a hoot? I gotta say, I think you're cute! ( caring)

Teapot Tuesday!

We were asked at the teapot challenge to make a card for a young man battling cancer. He enjoys a good glass of wine and the cards were supposed to be masculine. I was a bit stumped and came up with this ...

Hope this poem inside isn't too schmaltzy ...

Lets drink to enjoying the days that we've had

Some have been good and some have been bad
Whether it's chilly, whether it's hot
We've got to enjoy the days that we've got
The friends that we've met and the warmth of the sun
The sparkle of stars when a long day is done
The family love that can give us a lift
We treasure all these as a wonderful gift.
