Hoot Hoot Hooray!

I'm taking a quick break between homework and housework to show you a card I made for my nephew Mikey who turns 29 today :) !! I kept this pretty clean and simple, but that's Mike's style, so I think he'll like it. It still baffles me, but guys just don't like glitter and ribbon on their cards....weird, LOL!
I used the SU set, Owl Together Now. I love all the fun owls that are available this year... they're such happy little creatures :) ! The entire card went together fairly quickly...I used my 1 1/4 & 1 3/8" square punches for the 4 background squares. I paper pieced his hat in, colored the image with Copic Markers and added some Crystal Effects for shine and dimension. That's about it. The finished size is 4 1/4" square.

That DP is from the new
Occasions Mini Catalog...it's call A Walk in the Park. You can find that paper and the mini catalog right HERE.
The happy birthday sentiment is from the All Holidays set. By the way, if you're looking for a nice Mother's Day sentiment, that set has one of my favorites. You can see the entire set right HERE. As the name of the set implies, this set has a sentiment for pretty much every holiday throughout the year...very handy!




Well, that's about it for me. Back to the books. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have an awesome weekend :) !!!

This is a great card, Nancy!!! I don't get why guys don't like glitter and ribbon either, especially the glitter - it's my FAVORITE embellishment!!! ;) Have a great weekend and happy birthday to Mikey!
