Hoo's Happy!

Hey Ya'll!  I have seen this card plastered all over Pinterest in every shape, form, and fashion. He is so cute I just had to make one of my own. This particular version I saw at, but I changed him up a bit. I first changed his wings and made them moveable, so that they can be folded up to fit in an envelope. I also made the whole card into an owl instead of a feature on the card. He was fun to make, and my Mother( who collects owl's) had fun making him "fly" when I showed it to her. I supposed I will have to send the card to her for Fall!

Thanks for looking and have a "Happy Fall Ya'll"!

    Supplies- Wings: Spellbinders "Peony" die, 3 and 4 ",Stomach: Spellbinders 31/2" oval, Eyes: 1 and 11/4 " circle punches, Feet: S.U. "Scallop Edge" border punch, Beak and top "feathers" were cut by hand.

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the Fall weather! In my neck of the woods, we really only have two very distinct seasons Hot and Chilly. Every once in a while the Chilly season will become very cold(with snow!!) and the Hot season will grace us with a bit of Spring and Fall. This year we are having some beautiful Fall weather and I am enjoying every minute of it! My card today is a CAS one using some new and not so new embellishments from my stash. The simple sentiment reminds me to step back and enjoy the gifts of the season this year. I hope that you all are doing the same! Thanks for peeking!

Hello everyone! Here's another quick card for you using the Stamp of the Month for September. I decided to do another chalkboard only this time with brown and white. I distressed the edges to give it a rustic look and used buttons and hemp, and rubbed some Distress Glitter over the two words "gratitude" and "Blessed". The inside sentiment simply says "Fall into Autumn". Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking!

Supplies- Plaid paper: Authentique "Pioneer Plaid", Stamp: CTMH "Poster Tidings" SOTM for Sept., Natural Hemp: CTMH, Buttons from stash, Distressed Glitter: Ranger.
