my evil twin to thanks for pushing me to put myself out there. She and I are in group 1 of the design team..go check out her post too. Well enough of my blabber mouth here is my project....
(Sometimes in the middle of the night I will think of a way to use the stamps together, this happens while I'm driving too. I'm sure people see me talking to myself at the stop light with my head flopping back & forth, shaking my head, then smiling, KNOW I have lost my mind.)
In order for me to make a card, it helps if I have someone in mind. This one I had my friend Robin in mind, I probably should've used a different bird but these owls were so CUTE, because of circumstances she's ALWAYS on my mind lately. Normally the current owls that everyone is selling are mildly freaky to me. They remind me of shag haircuts, avocado green ovens, macrame, gold covered plastic framed mirrors, and those atrocious cat clocks with the tail ticking and the eyes moving side to side.....It's all so horrible to think about. BUT Jessica's Owls from her "Give a Hoot" Svg collections are so flipping cute, and don't fill me with terror that I had to use them.
Now back to Robin - she is this sweet, quietly hilarious person. She's been going through a very rough time, her son Mikey was diagnosed with leukemia the day after Mother's Day. He's now going through grueling chemotherapy, and will soon need a bone marrow transplant. I know this is horrifying for her and her whole family. BUT I know deep down in my heart Doodle is going to be alright and he will kick cancers butt big time. I think of her and her little family daily and want her to know that they are constantly prayed for by there friends, and she matters to me too. Her pain in this is not forgotten.

behind her little ones.
I used the step card technique in a very simple accordion fold. I used the Lettering Delights Pennants Svg set for my stamp wording. In SCAL I selected the wavy pennant, copied then pasted them so I had six total then I selected 3 then changed them to shadow regular, for the pennant bottom layer. I used Trendy Twine sold by Annie's Paper Boutique for the pennant string in Brown (this was from the little freebie she threw in to my order) then for the bows I used the Blueberry for the bows. I added some support on the sides because OF COURSE I overloaded the card and it kept falling over. On the owls I used Viva Pearl Pen in brown and bronze for the eyes, to make them stand out.
Well that is it...I had fun putting these little cuties together, please check out www.MyThoughtsExactly.co and check out all of her darling stamps, I bet you won't be able to exhaust all the ways you will be able to use them.
