“Owl” Tell You About It!

I have to share with you that I love owls. I do not know why but I do.  Maybe it is a flower power 70’s thing.  The 70’s were my early formative years.  So maybe in those years an owl inspired me.  Was it the owl that said, “Give a Hoot, Don’t Pollute”  ?  Or maybe the owl that was asked, “How many licks does it take to get to the middle of a Tootsie Pop”?  Oh, this is reaching a little further back.. there was some sort of crazy owl in shows like “The New Zoo Revue”  or even “H.R. Puff ‘N Stuff”.

So as a Cricut owner x 3 (Baby Bug, Expression and Imagine")  I have decided I need cartridges with birds and/or Owls on it.  I have to find an excuse to use these.  I will admit some of these cartridges just weren’t necessary and I will be really reaching for reasons to use them.  Really, how many phrases with the word “OWL” in it do I want to use?

For Christmas, a friend of my mom’s got my 3 children some crafty gifts. She is always so sweet to remember them witch such wonderful and creative things.  So out comes one of my owl cartridges to make a thank you note for her.

Here it is!  Straight from my Cricut Imagine nonetheless! 

From Owl of Us

I made this with my Imagine, as I said.  I used the layers function and the owl body is 2 layers plus the wings and his tummy and peak are popped up.  I added a little of the new color from Stickles called True Blue.  The words are hard to see clearly but it does say “From Owl of Us”.  It is also in 2 layers with True Blue Stickles.

The card base was a box of miscellaneous cards from DCWV (Die Cuts With a View).  There is a pattern or solid color on each card front and back.

I added some organza ribbon and a strip of white and polka dot blue ribbon and attached with my tiny attacher.

I don’t show the inside but it is just a blue cardstock stamped with the word “thanks”.  I then faux stitched the border with my white paint pen.

Thanks for looking and “Owl be back!”  soon with more of my creations!
