I matted my image using Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey circles with Bazzil paper in Rose. The pattern paper I used was from My Minds Eye - Merry 6" x 6" paper pad. I also did some stitching....
The sentiment came from the same MFT stamp set, I stamped it on a Teeny Tag using Bazzil paper in Rose, that I cut out using the tag die from My Creative Time set called Teeny Tag Greetings with Teeny Tag Dies. Then wrapped up a bow using a roll of organza ribbon by The Ribbon Boutique that I purchased from Hobby Lobby.
Now to something non-crafty related.......
Okay, now I'm not sure if you all know how much I love owls.....yesterday, I got a visit from a real live owl. My husband woke me up early in the morning and said, "you have to come see this, there's an owl outside"....now I was half asleep, I thought he was messing with me, because he knows how much I love em', but he wasn't....I peeked out of our kitchen window, and sure enough, there he was....sitting on the edge of the roof of the house next door.
Doesn't he/she almost look fake? Oh my goodness, I was in heaven....I had never seen an owl before, specially that close to me. I grabbed my camera and started taking photos.....he stayed here all day, then as it got later towards the evening, we noticed he was much closer to us, he was sitting on the wall that separates the house next door with ours.....
and as it got darker, he got closer to our house.....just so you know, I really wasn't that close to him/her, I have one of those lenses that makes things appear closer in pictures than you really where when taking it, LOL! Now, isn't he/she cute? Okay, maybe not as cute as one of those stamped images of an owl...
Keep in mind, it was dark when I was taking these photos, all I could see was his silhouette....so after I took this photo and saw what came up on the screen, I was a little spooked. Had no idea "he or she" was looking at me, LOL! He truly made my day.
He or She put a smile on my face all day along, every time I kept looking out my window and saw him sitting there. This truly was a very nice treat!! All I kept thinking about all day is, if he/she only knew how much I loved owls, it's not like we live out in the middle of nowhere......
