Happy Bird-day Challenge Card

Good Morning!! I want to start this post off with a laugh. Last night I asked my daughter if she wanted to help me make something in the craft room, she said she wanted to make a card with a star fish on it. She walked into the room where my parents were and told them "I'm going to help mommy make something in the craft store" LOL to her it probably looks like a store. Anyways I just thought I would share that. So Sunday and Monday there was alot of challenges for Earth day so I made a card to fit 3 of those challenges. Plus another challenge. No star fish just a cute little owl!!

What I Used:
K Andrew Designs Art Stamps : Owly Hoo "owl background and sentiment"
                                                     Hooty Owl Accessories "hat"
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps: Owl Celebrations
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Ribbon: recyled from stamp set packaging
Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils
EK Success Corner Rounder
Paper was from my stash

Ok I am entering this into the following challenges:

Getting Cricky : Simply Sunday Challenge: Give A Hoot
Made Especially For You : Use recyled material
Sentimental Sundays : Challenge 99 "Celebrating Earth Day"
Paper PlayTime : Challenge 72 "Say It With Sentiments Theme: Birthday Cards"

P.S We ended up getting some snow but only enough to make the roofs look white. Nothing on the ground!!
Have A Great Day!!

God Bless!



  1. I love that she called it a craft store. That is so cute! My room would be too messy to be a store! :) What an adorable card. I love the owl. He is adorable. I can not believe you got snow! That is nuts. Hopefully it stays away from here. Miss you around Getting Cricky! Hope you and your daughter are doing well.
