Knock, knock...

It has been 5 days since I posted. Really, time is flying. Must mean I am having fun. Well, I've had more fun, but I will say I am doing well. I am continuing the owl theme. Yet another friend has moved away. She is on the road to Memphis as I type. If many more people leave the area, I will be in a panic to find more friends. I figure I have some new places to visit. Of course, that takes money and I am running a little low, so I will dream of visiting for now. Gas is toooooo expensive to travel! OK, on to the card and other fun...

I lifted this idea from Hero Arts and used my Technique Tuesday alphabet stamps as well as a Studio G by Hampton Art image. I started very last minute, so it is a simple card. First, stamp your letters. I used Stazon ink in black. Then using cheap post-it notes, mask off the letter and stamp your smaller image, in this case, owls. I colored the owls using colored pencils and Goo Gone spray gel, works just as well as Gamisol and smells better, probably not as toxic, either.
My favorite part is the inside. Again, Technique Tuesday Alphabet stamps and Hero Art images. Both parts are layered on DCWV textured card. I finished the card off with three skittles from my extensive collection purchased on clearance at Mike's. I hope she liked the card. I was too sad, so I left it on her car before she left. I am not so good at good-byes.
Finally, the My Sketch World DT creations were posted yesterday. Lucy has been feeling poorly, so they are a little late. I say better late than never! I hope she feels better soon. GO check them out. I love what the other DT members did with this sketch. Plus, we are starting to post tutorials. I am trying to decide what I will do as my tutorial. If you have any ideas or want to get a more detailed explanation of something I have posted here, PLEASE let me know. I will make it my first tutorial.


  1. I love your Owl cards - i also recently did an Owl Miss You card but will only post it next week. Funny how you do something and then run into it within days on the web :)
