Birthday Bonanza

Card swap came and went last week. The theme was Birthday cards. And the favorite seemed to be the cup cake! Take a look!

DeeAnn brought the make-n-take this month. She had old calendars and a stack of patterned paper to make envelopes using a template. I had not thought of this fun project in years! Thanks so much DeeAnn for reminding me of a simple and creative way to send a card.

Owl Always Love You!

I am so in love with owls right now. My mom has collected owls for ages and she has quite a collection. But until recently I haven't caught on to the love of the owl. I had seen some adorable stuffed owls online and I think that's what did me in. So cute! So I decided to make one for a gift for my friend's baby. I made this cute little guy out of flannel. His eyes and beak are made from felt. I was surprised how quickly this project went together. I will definitely be making some more!
I also wanted to make some thank you cards for the mom-to-be. And I thought what better to put on the cards than a punched owl? Hmmm, maybe it was the owl punch that started my love affair with owls. Well, if you love this little punched owl, you can purchase the punch from me by clicking here.
And here is just a quick Yahoo to the Green Bay Packers for winning Super Bowl XLV yesterday. It was a celebration here... the Packers are hubby's favorite team! Whoo-hoo!
