Hoot! Hoot!

I really wanted to make a card for you all today, before I went to work. Do you find yourself buying these expensive magazines on stamping and cards, looking at it and then setting it aside? Well, what I have done with my Take Ten magazine, is to shut my eyes, flip the pages and point to something. Where I landed is the inspiration for this card..... silly? Maybe, but it worked for me!
I had purchased the Gem Stone Birds set from Inkadinkado, on sale, and it contained this adorable owl. I stacked and stamped him in Saddle Brown, Stazon. I added amber gems for his big old eyes. The sentiment was from an off brand valentines day set I found at AC Moore, which also was owl themed. The rest of the card was just scraps from my bin. The wood grain is a stamp I have had for a bit that just frustrates me to no end. It's a wood mount from All Night Media and I have yet to get a clean print from it. I have even tried changing stamping surfaces to get the middle to stamp clean but it is useless. I love it, so I can only cut strips and strategically place them.
Well that is it for now, and I will hurry back from work so that I can be ready for the Gina K Designs release party tonight. Have a great afternoon!
