My Backyard Hooty! 29

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, August 16, 2009 @ 5:28 PM | , , , , , ,

Hi Girlies! I hope all of you had a funtastic weekend! :) I had some free time today to stamp, so I made this Thank You card to merely have on hand. I had ALOT of inspiration for this card! Here it goes (in no particular order).... For the Color: Color Throwdown #55, (CTD55), the Sketch: iheart2stamp, (SFYTT), the Inspiration: Splitcoast's Inspiration Challenge 193, (IC193), featuring any item of your choice from the Curiousity Shop. I chose their Hooty Owl as well as My Backyard Hooty! :) As always, for amazing inspiration & your viewing pleasure, be sure to visit all of these sites! I was taking my lil' fuzzy friends, (Gretchen & Griffin), out for a walk the other night prior to dusk, when I saw Hooty perched on the fence! I live on a mountain ridge, so we have a pair of owls that hang out in our backyard, hunting the area below. I think these owls are soooo beautiful. I'd love to know what you think? Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Hi Mona, How lucky are you to snap a picture of an owl, I live in the Forst of Dean in the UK and so you'd think i'd see them all the time but very rarely do i get to see one of these beautiful birds.
I love the card and the little owl image is sooooo sweet.
Take Care - Ju xx
