Owl Girl

This was a nice weekend for us.  My sister and I went on Saturday and had our hair done which is always fun as the ladies who work in the salon are full of stories that make you laugh and laugh.  After, I spent a relaxing evening with my husband.  He made the most delicious bar-b-que chicken on his grill.  He smoked the legs and thighs for almost 2 hours.  It was so juicy and flavorful--yummy!  It was a real homemade meal as I made homemade potato salad and homemade cream style corn to go with it. I wish you could have been at our table.

Sunday is always a day to worship.  My husband had to work this day so I spent a good part of it with my sister crafting.  I love my craft time!!

Today's share is a card that I made a few months ago.  It sold very quickly at my April crop.  I came across a picture of it recently and wanted to share it with you. 

Isn't my little owl girl just adorable?  I used the wonderful 2 step owl punch to my owl.  I put a piece of DSP into the punch to make the dress.  Now the ruffle border was not made with the owl punch.  I actually used the scallop oval punch punched around a large oval hole.  I then cut it in half and adhered it to the bottom of her dress.  Then I trimmed the sides off so that it would be the perfect fit.  As you can see, I used the little heart from the owl punch in the center of her dress and placed a bead on it.  I also used the heart from this punch to make the beak.  I punched it out of tangerine tango and adhered it to the bird right at the v-neck of the dress.  Then I placed the eyes which covers the top part of the heart leaving the "beak" revealed.  She is perched on a branch from the 2 step bird punch.   Behind that is a 2 3/8" scallop circle punch embossed using the elegant lines impression folder.  Behind that is a beautiful quilt.  I started my quilt by using a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of whisper white card stock.  I used my handy 1 1/4" square punch to punch squares of of the DSP set I used for the owl dress.  I adhered these in a random order on my whisper white piece.  Once that was complete, I ran it through the big shot using the top note die.  I added the little "x"'s with a fine tip black marker to complete the quilt look.  It is layered on a piece of Not Quite Navy which had the corners rounded using the corner rounding punch and was then run through the big shot using the Vintage wallpaper impression folder to emboss it.  It was all then assembles on a base card of Marina Mist, I think.   

I love the quilt look and of course the little owl too.  I will definitely be making another one of these.  It is just too cute not to make one.  

Well, I am off to work hard on many things.  I appreciate your comments and encourage you to leave more.  Be sure to visit my online store and see all the cards I offer for sale.   Of course, feel free to order as many as you like.
