What a Hoot!

100 posts! Woohoo! I'm excited to make this 100th post tonight!~ Just this week I was invited to join the Design Team for 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. So be on the lookout, every Wednesday I will be posting some great cards featuring these wonderful stamps! This week I was working on my son's end of school gift. (Will this school year ever end?!?!?!) I had the opportunity to help out in his class on Fridays and got to know his teacher very well. Next year she will be teaching 2nd grade and French! How fun would that be? So we ordered her a bunch of books to help her out. We still have 6 french books on the way from Barnes & Noble, but I love it so far! The Owl is the "Owl Miss You" digi stamp available here! (Come on you know you want to go shop!) I used some bright colored paper by The Girl's Paperie: On Holiday line. I used these copics to colored my feathered friend : R29, R27, R17, Y17, YR04, YR07, E47, E29, & E35. Got all that? :) The tin was from Target in the Dollar Spot. The ribbons on the handles are all scraps I have! I also made sure to make the inside of the card look nice. I used the flower that the owl is holding on the inside and left plenty of space for my son to write a thank you. Hope you all like it! Head on over to 2 Cute!
