Owl Masquerade

     This lovely image, called "Owl Masquerade," is from AuroraWings and the challenge theme over there is "Anything with Wings."


I used the sketch from The Outlawz.


     The image is colored with my trusty ProMarkers and die cut with one of my framing dies from Spellbinders.  Her earring is made with a Pearl Pen and I flattened the pearl just before it was completely dry.  The lace was in my box of hoarded laces and the brown, polka dot ribbon came from Joann Crafts.  The tiny flowers were punched and glittered, with beads added to the centers.

     Well, the plumbing problem on Saturday was indeed a burst pipe and it has now been repaired but a lot of my yard was damaged during the repair.  Still, the crew was fast and efficient and got it done as quickly as it could be.  Only a few hours with no water of any kind (it was shut off at the valve) and then it was back to normal operating.  However, take my suggestion when I say, "Never have a burst pipe on a weekend!"  That 'little' repair bill took a huge bite out of the budget.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

This card is great. I love the black and white theme with just the touch of color. I know about those weekend and holiday rates for pluming. Something terrible! Enjoy the rest of the week.

It seems like emergency type stuff always happens on the weekends, Connie. I'm sorry you had this unexpected issue.

Your colors in this image are beautiful! They brings out a softness and beauty which remind us that we are supposed to be the caretakers of the world- really lovely.
