I am still alive

Sweet Pea Owl Ensemble templates and instructions


Hey all,

I am sorry I haven't posted in few days. The nasty cold hasn't allowed me to do anything, unfortunately. I have been in bed all day yesterday and today.

I felt like I should make me a card using the Wellness Wishes stamp set that is available as one of the Sale-a-bration rewards (# 120209) or you can purchase it for $14.95 (#115356) . The stamp set is the same but the item numbers are different because of Sale-a-bration. To shop click HERE
I feel like the poor puppy on the stamp :)))

ANyway...I will try to post something tomorrow. I just made some chicken noodle soup and I have been drugged up the past few days. I mean I have been taking meds for cold/flu.

Sweet Pea Owl

Valentine's Day Kits
I {heart} hearts purse template and instructions
ALL CLASS INSTRUCTIONS



So, last week I was looking through Etsy and saw this stinkin' cute owl pillows. And since today I wasn't at work (I got some stinkin' sinus infection), I decided to hand draw a pattern and make a card. I drew the body and the "belly", and the beak on printer paper, then transferred it to the dsp and cut it out. Then took a sahara sand card base and traced the pattern on it to (the card opens from the top, instead the bottom, since the bottom of the owl is flat).
For the eyes I used 2", 1 1/4" and 3/4" circles.
I REALLY like how it came out.

supplies:
stamps: none
ink: sahara sand write marker
paper: sahara sand, whisper white, basic black, pretty in pink, sweet pea dsp
