Manly Monday: Owl Be There

I’ve got to say that had one very busy and fun weekend.  Yes, it rained some on Saturday, but it was gorgeous rain and it cleared up faster than the rain started.

I scoped out places to eat near Natomas in Sacramento where I will be attending the premier of Stampin’ Up!’s 2014 catalog on April 28th!  My Circle of Pals and I will be hanging out in that area that day and I can hardly contain myself!

If you want me to reserve your FREE 2014 Catalog please let me know right here!  Please keep in mind, you must not have a current demonstrator to get your FREE catalog.  Current customers are already on my list and you will be the first to get yours!!!  YAYYY!


Today’s Manly Monday card is a special one.  It’s one that was made during a One-on-One card class today with my friend Pam.  She’s no stranger to crafts and she’s been itching to come over and make a card.


Pam doesn’t have a blog and I would love for you to leave her a comment about her sweet manly owl card.  Thank you so much for stopping by.

Owl Always Be a Friend

Owl never forget you and owl always be here for you said the Owl Punch as I walked into my little room.  I used the Little Leaves Sizzlits die to add the effect of branches for the owl to sit on.  Almost looks like it’s bouncing on it doesn’t it?

The use of sizzles or punches always add a bit of dimension to your cards.  I love how these two came together for my little owl card.


This week has been blah for me.  Maybe I feel this way because all I think about is the Stampin’ Up! convention that I will be missing.  The majority of my craft/card making friends are there and I’m daydreaming of all the fun they are having.

I will be thinking of them this whole week and I will be envious of the fun they will be having.  What makes this year’s convention so much more fun than any other?  It’s Stampin’ Up!’s 25th year anniversary and even though I’m not there, I’m going to watch it through the eyes of my fellow Pals.

We have a private Facebook page where we share all things Stampin’ Up! and personal stuff too.  They will be posting all about the convention and I’m so excited to start hearing about it… yayyyy.

Until the Next Post…

His & Her Engagement

Do you have a set of friends who are also dating?  Then they get engaged and you just don’t want to give them one card to share to congratulate them?   I was so happy to hear my friends, Tovi & Lauren got engaged that I just had to make them each a card.

Tovi’s card is a My Digital Studio hybrid (click here  to try it free).  I printed the she said, “Yes!” words from the Wedding Words Stamp Brush Set – Digital Download and used the 1″  and 1-1/4″ circle punches to create the ring.  I free handed or should I say free scissored the diamond silhouette with the silver glimmer paper.  The gold is no longer available, but you can use Champagne Glass Glitter.

Tovi mentioned to me that one of Lauren’s favorite colors was green and that is why I used the Lucky Limeade card stock to punch out the heart from the Owl punch.  Now that she said yes to the ring, her next step is to say yes to the dress.
