Hi, Friends.....

I couldn't let Valentine's Day go by without posting this sweet owl card. I already have a card for my hubby, but I might give him this one, too! Whooo-hooo! It might be too cutesy for him, though. Still deciding. He doesn't get home until the wee hours tonight or tomorrow so I still have time to decide.

This is another "completely out of scraps and strays" card. I had this partial package of 3-D owl stickers and the sentiment strip cut off of a 12x12 paper. I teamed them up with a stray woodgrain background piece, some squares and loose leaf die-cuts, and a burlap banner cut ages ago. I also found some extra brown hearts I had cut several weeks ago. Yay!! LOVE this cute critter card! Awwwwww.....

Products used...ALL SCRAPS AND STRAYS!! Yay!!!

  9. “Strays” ... hahahaha, you really have me
    Laughing with that one! I should have called it a Strays Challenge I think. Sooo ... did hubby end up getting this cute valentine as well?!

  10. I love owls and what a fantastic card they made here. Thanks so much for joining us this time at the Pile it On Challenge, Elizabeth (DT)

  11. Yikes! Another card that I missed seeing?~! Well, I must have sleep-walked through February if I didn't see this one because it's ADORABLE! You couldn't have done a better job if it designed from scratch, and not from leftovers! Those owl stickers are already so cute but the strip of burlap and the wood-grained paper are the perfect rustic touch. I also love the colors you chose, with the bright green and blue contrasting with the brown and orange. This is a favorite!


THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Your kind words encourage me so very much!!!

Have a lovely day!
