Hope Your Holidays Are A Hoot

When I saw this fun sentiment from Create with TLC, I just knew I had to design a card around it!  Talk about getting the cart before the horse!!!  I immediately thought about a Cricut cartridge I owned called "Give A Hoot".  And of course with a name like that, there had to be an owl...

Holiday Hoot

The sentiment is from TLC and my owl and first background diecut were all made with Cricut cartridges.  The other background diecut was made with a Spellbinders die and the branches were made with a Martha Stewart punch.  The design paper is from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose/Mabel collection.  

This was loads of fun!  The majority of my owl parts were embossed and the eyes were made with buttons and dew drops.  

My prayers and thoughts are with those who have suffered such tragic loss from Sandy.  I have been watching the news and I just can't believe all the damage.  I live close to the Outer Banks and Cape Hatteras, they suffered extensive damage but nothing like NJ and NY.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, I love reading your comments and appreciate all your support!
