Owl-ways Thinkin'

We've been on the go here, so there hasn't been much time for posting, but I have found a little time to play here and there.

My daughter, Sarah and I like owls, especially cute ones on t-shirts, bags and stationary. Even though there are some very nice owl stamp sets out there, they weren't quite what we were looking for. After searching stamp stores and sites for several months, I started sketching out what I had in mind. The sketch sat in my notebook for a few more months.

In the meantime, a co-worker started a home-based engraving business. She shares my joy of papercrafting and we got to talking (wondering) if her little machine could cut stamps. To our delight, it can! Thus, my first stamp design was born!!!

It's not much, but it sure has been fun to see this little owl come to life! I've enjoyed coloring him with my Copics and paper piecing him with a variety of patterned paper. He's so cute and just what Sarah and I were looking for!

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend~Patti

Hmmm...do I see a new stamp business in the making on the horizon???? Your owl is just sooo sweet, Patti! (I didn't know you could draw too!) Love your pattern paper choice --looks great on this beautiful card.

hugs,
