Hey There...

Hey there, Chickadee! Happy Saturday to you! I hope that you're having a great weekend...isn't the holiday season just the greatest!? We're totally still in the holiday mode and Monday is going to be a bit abrasive, I'm sure! Getting back to the grind after such a fun filled holiday feels so good, but it takes a few days to get back on track. But, I hope you have a great weekend!


Today I want to share a fun little card. I kind of started it with a Valentine in mind, but I think it could be great w/o the Valentine thought too! I love the sentiment, from PTI Everyday Button Bits. The owls are new from Hero Arts and I love them.

So, for this card, I stamped my owls and colored them in with copic markers(I do love those things! I know I'm a bit late in learning what JOY they bring to the crafting world, but I'm glad to know why everyone loves them so much!). I glitified one owl's belly and oultined her with a glitter pen. I used a 1 3/8" circle punch to punch them out and them mounted them on a chocolate chip scallop circle punch.


For the card base, started with white, added a layer of pumpkin pie that had taken a trip through the crimper. My patterned paper is from a SU scrappin' kit. I added a chocoalte chip border, that had been scalloped with my EK scallop border punch. I tied a 5/8" chocolate ribbon 'round and then added the sentiment in chocolate ink.


I added my owls to the card with dimensionals and then added some love. I punched the three hearts with my SU heart punch. I used pumpkin pie cardstock. I was going to just use one, but I really like the three of them layered!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! See you Monday! I've got a few samples to share from the new LAD singles for the month...see you then!
