Now for my project (s) First I made an Owl to wish my clients HO HO HO OT! during the holidays! How fun is he??

The paper 9 x 10 from a stack at Hobby Lobby, owl is from the Silhouette store, and Ho Ho Ho is from CTMH Art Philospy. I cut the extra OT from Cricut Keystone. Layered the lettering on an embossed background, then a red mat and added some brads and a ribbone. The Ho Ho HO/mats were my Christmas cards this year... The clients loved him as I perched the frame (Wal-Mart) 1.97.. where they sign in at each day. Then I made two additional Owl projects... because once I knew I was going to take part in this hop, owls seemed to pop up everywhere!

 
This blingy owl is a sticker (Paper Studio) from Hobby Lobby. Being in pink, I"m sure it's a girl but doesn't she look like she's ready to party? How could I not invite her to this party? The sentiment is from a CTMH Valentine set, so for at least once, I'm ready for an upcoming holiday.. I put the owl on the black background so she'd pop, layered it on a pink mat, all on a white base. I stamped on white, layered it on pink, and then onto the black. Added some pink twine, with a gold heart button, and done! Quick and easy, but oh so cute!!
 


This owl is a Print and Cut shape from Silhouette. I just didn't cut it out.. but cut a rectangle, layered on a green patterned paper, on a white base. I love white bases so it's easy to add a message or sentiment inside the card. I stamped Thinking of You (CTMH) okay, can you tell I sell CTMH? Added some green gems for some bling, and again, quick and easy but so cute! I don't think it has to be time consuming to create a great card to convey a special message, and your receipent will be thrilled you thought of them! I hope you enjoyed your visit here. I hope your holidays are blessed and please continue to pray for the victims of Newtown, CT, as these parents/families face the holidays without their beloved family member. Now from here you're off to: Paula http://scrapyourworld1.blogspot.com/.

Thanks so much for joining us!! We really appreciate each and everyone of you!

  2. I cannot imagine what those poor familys are going through, it breaks my heart to even think about it. I remember the year my mother passed away just before Christmas and how hard it was it will be nothing compare to those poor familys.
    I also would like to say just how much I enjoyed your owl projects they are all just fab!
    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
