Owl Always Love You (CQC123) & blog break

Hi there, time for a fun color combo at the ColourQ! Great inspiration pic, too. Clearly, I was inspired by the pic as well. Here's the palette:


This was a very simple card created with punches and 2 retired Stampin' Up! sets called "Owl Together Now," and "Love You Much." If you allowed yourself a bit of extra time for "owl assembly" you could probably whip up several of these cuties in a hurry! I used Rose Romance (retired) because I don't have any Regal Rose.

Also, my sweet blog friends; I wanted to let you know, I am taking a week off around the blogosphere, and things may be sporadic at best for awhile. Please don't be offended if I don't get comments back to you. I am so sorry, this is just the way it has to be right now. Some members of my extended family have been under a lot of stress and I need to help out there, hubby is working about 60-70 hours per week, the kids have been sick & I am still struggling with my new meds. In short, I am overwhelmed to the hilt, so I need to take care of my nearest and dearest right now.... but, I will MISS YOU! :) I love my blog and my blog friends! I look forward to "seeing" you on Valentine's Day, and to being back full-strength 'round these parts very soon. ;)

I have a very CUTE, EASY, and FUN colourQ project cued up for next week, just you wait! :)

Have a great week.


supply list: all supplies from Stampin' Up! except for: Pattern stamps on vests: Martha Stewart Crafts; corner rounder punch: EK Success; die for sentiment: The Cat's Pajamas; pink gem

DUST IT OFF!: Both stamp sets and the pink colored ink and cardstock are retired.
