A Little Talk with an Owl

     Owls are supposed to be such wise birds, how do you suppose a conversation with one would go?   Would you be any wiser when you walked away?  My daughter loves owls and I love finding stamps with owls that I can use on cards for her.  This one, by Ching-Chou Kuik and called "A Little Talk," captured my heart and I'm sure it will capture hers, too.


     I colored this lovely image with my Copics and ProMarkers and then die cut it using Stitched Rectangle dies (Die-namics.)  I also cut all the other rectangles with either stitched dies or pinpoint dies (Memory Box.)  On some of them, I used ink to emphasize the stitching.  I used a scrap of ribbon from my stash and one of the bows I make by the dozens, also from my stash.

     The sentiment is something I say to my daughter all the time.  :-D  Her birthday in in October so this may very well become her birthday card.  But I could end up giving it to her just so she knows I'm thinking of her.

     Thanks for stopping by and feel free to look around while you're here.   There's coffee in the pot and cookies in the jar - help yourself.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
