3 owls, an embossing folder and some googly eyes!

OH and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary yesterday - well I say celebrated we exchanged cards and got some nice Thai food in for dinner. For my creation I had lots of fun with googly eyes, spellbinders nesting owls and a Tim Holtz impressions folder. I used a trick he displayed on his blog, carefully using a craft knife you slit along the crease of the embossing folder, allowing you to create a longer / bigger image - only when you are embossing pay attention to the creases when you add the rest of the bits so you don't end up adding un-needed prolifary items! I decided to create our family in owl form so baby owl is a combination of 2 big owls. I don't really know if he liked it - I think he smiled, but he has only expressed a reaction to one of my cards and that was the seasons winning card from a few posts back - that one he didn't want to part with! Hope you all have a lovely weekend. We are wrestling with fitting roof bars and a roof box to the car we are taking on holiday at the end of next week - when the rain stops that is.......

todays stolen phrase is un-needed prolifary items

my mother was an elderberry and my father smells of bananas or something like that....

Loving the texture on this one. If hubby is anything like mine then that smile is worth a thousand words when it comes to expressing himself :)
