Hoot Hoot.


Hello, hello, hello!

Y'know, for as many cards that I make, sometimes I still scramble for a card when a last minute occasion pops up!

This card may be a non-traditonal card for a friend's upcoming baby because it features the quirky owl from Paper Smooches' Chubby Chums set. But with the baby-themed papers from Fancy Pants Design, I think it works.

Owls have been a popular theme for a lot of the baby showers this year. These big-eyed and wise creatures are so very cute!

I'm also entering this card for the Sparks Challenge at the new PS Sparks blog. It's a photo inspiration challenge and here's the pic:

I went with the colors of peach, lime, baby blue, and cream for the owl and most elements of the card. The pearls and lace are for the textures. And the styles of vintage and cutesy are combined into one. I've been interested in doing that a lot lately - pairing up a fun and cute stamp with shabby chic/ vintage papers. Gotta shake it up a little bit once in a while, right? ;)

Anyway, there is a DT call for this new challenge blog. Am debating whether or not to try for it. Speaking of, I have some awesome news to share with y'all in the next week! Am so excited!!!

The first of those news will be revealed tomorrow so I hope you come back!! Thanks so much for visiting!

Fun card Rinne! I love how you have the owl sitting on the wire with the wee birds! It reminds me of that cute Pixar animation about the big bird trying to sit with the little birds. Super cute!
