My weeks are currently going by in Hyperthrust Turbo Boost. I feel like I am about a Lightyear behind. Just when I think I have finished for the day I remember another project, job or chore that needs doing. But that’s okay, after the 6th of December, things should settle down. So in a short 2 1/2 weeks I will be back to normal…….I hope! LOL!
But onto this weeks challenge-
This time I didn’t go with the butterflies, but I didn’t veer to far from them……owls are pretty cute and I haven’t played with my Owl Together Now set since convention back in May. I used it for one of my swaps. I had three different designs for my swaps, but Makeesha liked the owl card very much. I should play with it more. Here is what I came up with-
I really like how this one has turned out. You should have seen my first attempt! It was shocking. It’s one of those cards you hide away, never to see daylight again…LOL! I made it with one of the preorder sets for the Summer Mini. The idea was good but the end result was BAD!!! Sorry Karen! It’s even worse than an ugly card. You can’t make me show it. LOL!
I used a bowl from the kitchen to create my circle. I will invest in some Circle Scissors one day soon I can assure you. With the heart I just smothered it in ink and then rubbed Crystal effects over it to make it glossy before I added the button and twine. The bottom strip of the card was looking a tad to bland so I used the tree from Thoughts and Prayers and clear embossed it to jazz it up a bit. Now I look at it I should have done that all around the card. Oh well!
