Enjoy Every Moment October Blog Tour

Welcome to the enjoy every moment october blog hop! I hope you have been having fun visiting all my fun and talented friends who have put this together for you. I myself have been thinking of some holiday ideas to use for the owls and these are 2 little ideas I wanted to show you.
The base is real red with bashful blue DSP in polka dot that I thought resembled snowfall. Whisper white was torn to make it look more snow like. Put a little glitter with glue and the back ground is ready to go. The sentiment is rough type from the summer mini. The owl body is chocolate, with hat and scarf from a retired SU DSP.

The songbook is from the First day set also from the summer mini that I cut out and stamped with the holly from the new holiday mini tag set in green. I put a little gold on the spine to make it look more booklike. I cut out another one in white and layered in underneath to look like pages in a book.
Pretty easy owl card- I thought it would be fun to put maybe 3 owls standing underneath a lamppost or a tree- I will have to try that next time.

This is another one that was swimming in my head for a while. I thought a reindeer wannabe owl- Used the snowflake punch to make the antlers and the circle from the new designer DSP to make the nose. the body was punched in crumbcake and scallops stamped from PTI background retro set. the branch was die cut with bird and branch sizzlet strip in olive that I ran the soft suede pad to paper direct technique. Added some liquid applique in white and glitter. The back ground was airbrushed in B32 Cop*c with a circle masking the moon.

Wandering words set for the santas sleigh ride separated from the words.

A little liquid applique, glue and glitter and voila! another not too difficult card!
don't you just love owls?

The sentiment is a partially inked stampset from saleabration earlier this year.
A little bling to make it a little special and it is a cute card. We can all dream!
Now get going to the my wonderfully talented friend Mercedes here:
