Whooooo do you love??

It's Sunday.....already! ugh! Work tomorrow...double ugh! lol

But that's ok!

I got crafty again last night. I had seen a card on one of my favorite sites created by a couple of talented ladies. And talk about being inspired! And determined! It took me a little while (I'll tell you why in a minute!) but I am quite pleased with the overall card! This will be for my DD, April, for Valentine's Day this week. I had to hide it from her, and I could not let on that I was making HER something. She's a tad nosey! lol


I just have to address it my little princess. I might put a little chocolate heart on the heart inside, on the heart.

I used Fancy Pants Baby Be Mine papers for the owl. I didn't want it too bright or too dark, yet I also wanted it a little 'folky'. (Is that a word?)

This was actually quite fun to do. And pretty easy. The whole card consists of hearts, circles and ovals.Which led me to a realization. I have ZERO circle punches (besides a regular hole punch) and 1 small heart punch!!! That is all I have!!! Can you believe that??? And the templates? I have 1 heart one! You should have saw me scouring the house for an oval shape for the owl's body! My gang just rolled their eyes! lol Me thinks me needs punches. I didn't even have a Cricut cartridge that would cut out hearts, circles, or ovals!! sad!! So sad! lol But I did it!

I am going to try to make 3 more cards...different ones. Not sure what yet! Oh the pressure! lol

Be safe. Get crafty.

OMGosh, Laura, this is adorable!! I love how the wings fold shut to peek-a-boo! And yep, sounds to me like you need some punches (or maybe a nice set of Nesties and a Big Shot?) It's a slippery slope :) Thanks so much for sharing with us at Playing in Paradise!!
