Whoo Loves You

It's been forever since I've posted. The weather here in Alaska turned beautiful on May 1st and has been amazing every day since!! So, I haven't been inside much for a while. Plus, we've started down the potty training road with my son! He's caught on fast and although I may be tooting my horn a little early, it looks like after just two short days, we have a successful potty using boy! ;O)

My step-mom's mother embroidered a really cute owl onto a t-shirt for my son (his initials happen to be O.W.L-so we call him "Hoot") and I wanted to send her a thank-you. So, I took some time out of the sun and made this card for her. I started out using a Mojo Monday sketch, but it didn't turn out looking like it in anyway!! That seems to happen to me a lot lately!! ;O)

For the front I used Perfect Day Level 2 paper with Cocoa and Tulip cardstock along with Tulip, Cocoa, Chocolate, Creme Brulee, and Juniper inks. The owl and branch are from the Whoo Loves You stamp set, the leaves from Treasure Life, and the sentiment is from You're a Hoot. I also used Dew Drops from the Bird's Nest, CTMH pewter brads (for the eyes) and stickles on the branch (they're hard to see).
I finished off the inside using more Perfect Day Level 2 paper, Colonial White cardstock, and Tulip, Chocolate, and Juniper inks. For the stamps I used the You're a Hoot for the owl, Boutique Borders, and From Me to You for the sentiment. I also used a couple of Bitty Brads for the eyes!
