Owl be missing you...



I have two cards to show you today, both of which use patterned paper scraps from the secretary's day desk organizer I showed you yesterday. If you missed it, just scroll on down to yesterday's post.

As you can see in the first card, I paper pieced the body of my owl with a scrap of the patterned paper I created using Guidelines 2 (PTI). I also used Guidelines 2 to create a more subtle yet matchy-matchy patterned paper for the lower portion of this 3 1/4" x 6 1/2" card. Just to bling up my girly owl a bit, I added Diamond Stickles to her eyelids and then again to the center of the Raspberry patterned layer to pull it all together. This card is going to my fabulous student teacher who has been working with me for the past 12 weeks. Tomorrow is her last day and I'm really going to miss her. We really clicked and on top of that she's a fabulous SLP (speech language pathologist)!


The second card also uses a scrap of that patterned paper, and is actually a re-make of the card that accompanied the desk organizer from yesterday. In all the hustle and bustle of Secretary's Day, I forgot to take a picture of the original card, so I just had to make another to show you.

Below are the details for each of the cards:

Great choice of colors, they pop out so nicely - FUN cards! - the owl is my fav (i am bias, love owls) but you made him specially nice by using different patern paper to dress up the image - love how you did it!
