Owl-errific!

In the past week I have made Three owl cards!  This is not because I am an owl fanatic or anything, but it just seemed to work out that way.  First I was inspired by the Lawn Fawn DT to create something halloween-y.  I was going have the sentiment say "Have a Hooty Halloween" but my husband was not on board with that idea so I changed it.


Then a coworker requested a wedding card for a wedding she had to attend.  I turned to the little owl again, because I thought he would be good to try and mirror to make a wedding couple.


Can you guess how many Lawn Fawn sets I used on this card?  I was pretty shocked I used so many when I counted them up.  Just goes to show how amazingly well they all work together.  Then on Saturday I had a friend ask me if I could make a custom card for her to give her husband for their anniversary.  She said he liked owls so naturally I had to use owls once again.


I added the dragonfly not knowing that she loved dragonflies.  I just love how things work out perfectly sometimes.  I will probably give my owl stamp a little rest after all these cards, but he (or she) is so cute and works for many things (especially when given the appropriate hat!) so I can't make any promises. :)

Thanks for stopping by today!  I wish you all a happy week!

  1. Holy owls! And you know what? They're all freaking adorable! On the first card, I LOVE that hat and how it makes the owl very halloweenlike. On the second card, I'm in love with that woodgrain frame. It's perfect. (And I love the reverse stamping!) And that dragonfly on the third card is the perfect touch. Uh oh... I think I need to go play with my owl stamp now. Thanks for sharing, Chari!

  9. I love ALL of these!!! You know, I ordered the LF Hats on Monday - I had already placed a LF order on Thursday for a few other sets & decided that I really needed them! (speaking of which, will any happy mail come to me today... I'm waiting ever so patiently!!!!). Anyway, it's so funny because I was walking my dog Sunday night and just couldn't stop thinking about a witchy owl - thats so funny that you made one!!! It came out so cute!!! I also love the other 2 cards & your friends must have flipped for them!!
