Owl be watching


He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake.  Don't tell Santa that I am the one who is awake.  I am trying to get things packed up to go to Wisconsin to craft for the weekend, and instead I am making cards.  I wanted to have a couple samples to share with my friend, Debby for ideas for the Christmas card class.  I know that I should not be playing with this, but the stamps were here, and the paper scraps were here, and I just had this idea, so I had to run with it.  I think I have a hard time going to bed when I still have creative ideas running in my head.  It's well after midnight, but I have creative mojo, and just have to let it go!  So, just for fun I thought I'd share this with you quick, and call it a night.  I just love this Owl Occasions stamps.  It's a must for the weekend, because I have ideas for all seasons and occasions, and I know I'll put it to much use.  The other thing I have to
get in the habit of doing is making the matching envelope, otherwise I always find myself going back later to do it, and you don't always have the matching paper for a flap if you want it.
It was the challenge at Jingle Belles that reminded me to do that when they suggested a card with matching envelope. Thanks Jingle Belles :)
Enjoy your weekend, and hope you have creative mojo, too.

  2. you are VERY welcome, indeed! i was glad we had this challenge for exactly the same reason: i adore decorated envelopes but seldom take the time; it's good to have a "push" to remind us, right?! i absolutely ♥LOVE♥ that sweet owl stamp, and you have used him brilliantly here: on the outside, on the INSIDE and on that super-fab envelope! well done!!!
