Hang in There


It's Monday - so hang in there :)

I have a bright summery card for today using a piece of colorful background paper done with a Tim Holtz shattered stencil and some bright distress inks that were sponged on. I cut a snippet of that sponged paper to make the matching outfit for the owl. The embossed aqua, white, and tangerine panels were done with Lil Inker and Gina Marie stitched dies, and the sentiment is from the SU! set "Here for You." The SU! punched owl is hanging from a branch cut with a MB woodland branch die.

Here's hoping your Monday is off to a good start. Summer's here!

Your care of the details and the matching elements always impress me.... The snippet of the sponged background used for the owl is just a perfect catch-eyes (with the eyes of the owl, too...! LOL)Love the branch and the stitched frames!

The up-side-down owl reminds me of my grandma! :) She loved the quote with it that said "Nobody's Perfect!" The shattered glass stenciling looks amazing here Carol!! Love the colors! HUGS

What a spiffing card Carol. I do like your upside down owl and how cute to make his bib from the background design. Making hay whilst my internet is up and running. Hugs Mrs A.

Even though this little owl is upside down he is the happiest, brightest owl I've ever seen. I love this card. Enjoy the day.
