WooHoo


Just flying by today with an owl card!  I recently got a new die from Lil Inker (after Maria sent me a cute card using this Instant Camera die) and had to do something with it quick because it's too cute not to want to do something with it!  It looks exactly like the old Polaroid frames we took  using that camera so many years ago!   I used Chocolate Chip for the frame instead of black though so it would match the owl better.   I sponged the sky in and cut out the Paper Smooches owl.......he really needed a perch of some kind and I couldn't come up with a good stamp or die piece - so walked outside and got a real stick for him to rest on.



I used a sketch from Retro Sketches ( just flipped it) and I'll enter this in their challenge.  I'll also enter it in the Simon Says Stamps Challenge (Things with Wings).

Thanks for stopping by..................(Have y'all noticed how I'm behaving myself this week!!!  I'm not sure how long it'll last but am pretty proud of myself so far!)

You do CAS so well, whether it is a cutesy image or an elegant one. That and the fact your colour combos are bang on every time.
That sky is fabulous the way it's darker, light, dark in the v's... very pretty. Cute stick!
