Hoo's having a Birthday!

Evening everyone! Hope ya'll had a great day. Ours was full of rain and cold weather. Not just little rain, but pourdown rain!! We've had this going on for days now and I think we've had enough, but alas, it is suppose to rain for the next two days, too!!! Since I was off work today, and it was raining, I headed to my crafty room to do a little bit of crafting. I made this cute birthday card for one of our grands. And I'm entering it into the challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2. This week they want a Cricut bird and branch. I used the Wild Card 2 cartridge. This is the first time I've cut any of the cards from this one. I went with the owl on the branch that can be found on page 45. I cut it at 4.50 inches as it says to on the page. I think it turned out so cute!!! I did use some glossy accents on the eyes and did some faux stitching around the glasses. On the inside I added a circle scallop that I cut from a Quic Kutz Nesting Flowers Cookie Cutter Die using my Big Kick. I added my sentiment on it. This one can be found on the For The Birds stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I hope ya'll like my card!!! I really hope our granddaughter does! :)

Super Cute! I love this fun little owl with those great big glasses - what a cutie! We had sprinkles here today and it has been unseasonably warm the last few days. Supposed to get much, much colder over the next few days. Hope the rest of your week is wonderful and dry!
