For this card - my inspiration was my mom. She is the book reader in my family and she loves owls - so I thought this card would be fun to give her and submit for this challenge. It was a fairly simple card - the longest part with making it would be of course stamping out the custom sentiments. I used some of the pattern paper from the Dewey Decimal 6x6 paper pad. I stamped out my owl from "Critters in the Forest", and did some "altering" on his eyes to make them look like he is a surprised owl. Then, I stamped, cut out and colored my little bird from "A Birdie Told Me" set. The, I used "Harold's ABC's" for the custom sentiments " You're cool for reading books" - "Who Me"??
I know how much my mother LOVES her books, and I envy her for that. I am more of a magazine girl! HA!
