Oh by g*OWL*y...

...have a h*OWL*y, j*OWL*y Christmas this year! Ok, so after stamping the sentiment from Kim Hughes' URA Hoot set, I sat for the longest time, staring at it, wondering what in the *hay* it meant. I was reading it as "owl owl Christmas", but after closer inspection I realized that it actually reads, "hOWLy jOWLy" Christmas...duh! So, to save you some *duh* time (not that you'd be as lame-brained as me), I took a closeup shot of the sentiment, whoot whoot!

Below is a full shot of my card for today's SCS Color Challenge #183: Going Gray, Riding Hood Red and Green Galore--what a crazy combo! I pulled out the fun owl set because of the Santa hat and holly included--perfect for these Christmas colors, right?! The strip of RHR is repeatedly stamped with the holly in Versamark and then overstamped with that goofy sentiment. Maybe I'm just in a goofy mood? The scalloped strip was created with my handy-dandy scallop edge punch and the ribbon is new RHR taffeta from Stampin' Up!. Almost forgot--I added a bit of sparkle to Mr. Owl's hat trim with Dazzling Diamonds, adhering it with my 2 way glue pen.



Have a *hoot*iful evening and stop back this week as I hope to be a bit more prolific with my blogging!
