Hi everyone! I've got great news! I was invited to participate in my very first blog hop by Georgiana over at carsonscreations.blogspot.com!! :) She's got a great group of ladies working together and this hop is going to be a super sweet one! :) And of course, there will be blog candy too! :) I hope to see you all there with us!
Since I got the email from Georgiana I have been so excited about this! It's put me in a very sweet crafty mood. I thought I should probably make a "practice project" for the hop, so I did :)
I got to use my "Owl always love you stamp" that I got for $1 at Michaels :) which I put on a 2" scallop heart cut from the Sweethearts cartridge.
I cut the owl from Create-A-Critter at 3.5 inches, but I used the eye cutouts from the Cindy Loo cartridge's owl to open her eyes (these had to be cut at 5 inches to fit over). I originally saw the owl a different color, but this is what I had in my scrap drawer, so I went with it, and I think she came out really cute :)
This is also my first card using brads, (the small sparkley hearts on the corners) and I'm still not sure if I like them or not, but the holes were made so they were staying!lol
I found the ribbon in my scraps bin and thought it'd be a good touch to bring out the brown in the owl.
Overall I think it's one of my favorites :) I'm entering it into a few different challenges:
