Do you give a hoot?

..about typos?? Okay - so I'm just playing around with owls today - actually owl stamps and other woodsy excuse my pun. I spent all morning long yesterday trying to create our holiday photo card.... uploaded them to be printed... and then hours later showed hubby and that was when I noticed the typo. I told hubby that half the people getting cards will notice them... the other half won't. Should I still send them out? I thought about stamping a "woops - sorry for the typo" on the back of the photo card. LOL. Let me know what you think.

So back to the owls. I've been playing with one of my new Stampin Up stamp sets. It's called "Owl Together Now" (Item 111534) and it's so fun. My little girl loves them, too. She has an adorable card in progress. If she finishes this week (she's coloring in everything) I'll show a photo.

This card uses Owl Together Now Stamp set with Dream Street papers. The frame is a die cut from Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge. I colored the owl with pastel chalks and a Stampin Up blender pen. See my step by step tutorial for using the chalks with the blender pen called Coloring With Chalks is a Hoot.

Below are some more cards using the owl set.

And guess what!!?? If you love Stampin' Up products, you can order now through December 23 and get FREE SHIPPING on orders over $70! And on top of that, stamps on the retired list are 10% thru December 23. What are you waiting for? It's so easy to shop anytime day or night at My Stampin Up Store!

One one last card - no stamping. This uses Collage Press, October Afternoon and Sassafrass Lass papers. Rub on is Melissa Frances, Twill is Stampin' Up.

The rest of this week will be spent painting. I'm working on some adorable dachsund paintings. One of the buyers just happened to be in Mimi's Cafe in GA last week and saw my painting. Then they wandered onto my ebay auction this week and there it was...perfect timing. I'm customizing it for their little one. I'll post a photo later.
