Humbug Owl

     Having not blogged anything in more than a week, I have a ton of cards to share and I'm setting scheduled posts for all this week.  On Saturday and Sunday, I'll be sharing with you several cards I did for Father's Day or with a masculine theme.  But for today, I'm going to share my first Christmas card of the year.  I haven't done anything about Christmas up to now because I made so many Christmas cards last fall that I still have more than enough for family and friends this year!  But, I saw this mopey looking owl over at QKR Stampede and couldn't resist him so doing a Christmas card was necessary.  :-D


     With that look on his face, the sentiment was a natural.  I colored him with Promarkers, corner punched the image piece and mounted it onto two layers of torn CS in red and kraft.  The dp is from SU and I added sparkle to the snowflakes on it.  The bow is tied with gingham ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Very CAS in design, even with the three metal brads.

     Challenges:
Addicted to Stamps & More -- CAS
City Crafter -- For the birds
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas -- A/G Christmas
Fan-Tastic Tuesday -- A/G
Fussy and Fancy -- Things with wings
Jingle Belles -- Red & green
Loves Rubber Stamps -- CAS
Moving Along with the Times -- CAS
Scrappers' Delights -- A/G + Layers
Squigglefly -- Christmas
Stampin' for the Weekend -- A/G

     OK, I'm off again and will be visiting all your blogs when I return and have some time that's really all mine!  That may actually not be as soon as I'd like but I haven't abandoned you, honestly.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
