Hoot and Holler - You're a Scholar!

Hey there lil' hens.... did ya have a good weekend??? I hope so. It's SUPER hot here in Florida and the LOVE BUGS are baaaaack!! Nassty!!So, needless to say, I stayed inside!!

I made several graduation cards that I'll be posting this week, so I'm calling this GRAD week!! LOL!! Ok, so here is the first one I made. This is Owen from the U R A Hoot set from Cornish Heritage Farms. This set, by Kim Hughes, includes Owen the Owl and all sorts of hats for him. There's a Santa hat, a birthday hat and of course this grad cap too with all sorts of sentiments as well. It's a really cute and versatile set to add to your collection, besides, who doesn't LOVE Owen??? Is he a doll or what? Lookit those big 'ol eyes!

Ok, so this DP is from Recollection's Autumn collection and includes lots of earthy tones so I thought it coordinated perfectly with Owen. I stamped Owen onto some Choice Buttercream CS and colored him with my Copics. I cut him out with my circle Nestie and sponged a little chalk ink around the edges. I stamped the branch onto some woodgrain DP from this same paperpack and then cut it out with my scissors. I used my Exacto knife and cut around his little toes and then slide the branch underneath them. I stitched around all the edges of the DP and then tied this plaid ribbon into a cute little bow. Ok, that's it for me today. Be sure to leave a cluck below and let me know what ya think, ok?

Just a quick reminder - my That's Krafty Thursday challenge is open until this Wednesday evening at 7:00pm. I'll select my TOP THREE KRAFTY CHICKS and include thumbnails of the winning cards on my blog post on Thursday. Come on and play along with the hens. Nothin' hard 'bout this challenge.... just use Kraft CS somewhere on your card. That's it!! Link your card to my May 20th post and check back on Thursday to see if you're the next KRAFTY CHICK!! Have a great Monday!! {{{hen hugs}}}

  1. What a Hoot! Love Owen in his gradation cap. The paper pieced branch is fab. Have a wonderful week, hugs...

  2. I love this owl and your sentiment. Such a cute idea.

  3. Great card,so love the sleepy owl,looks like he could drop off that perch at any minute,lol! x

  4. What a cute card. Love the little owl, he is so cute. Those papers are just perfect. I love this collection. TFS

  5. I love the way the branch turned out! I like how the graph looking paper is echoed in the blue paper. Cute sentiment.

  6. Oh the wize old owl. Did you know that owls are actually not very intelligent. Their brains are very small cause their eyes are so big it takes up all the room in their skull, which leaves little room for the brain.
    Okay, less of the useless info! Your card is so cute and a great colour combo. I like that ribbon a lot!

  7. He's sooo cute. I love the background paper.
