Snowy Owl Birthday – jkcards

Snowy Owl Birthday

Happy last day of 2012! I can’t believe the year is almost over, like hours away from being over! I want to take a minute to thank all of you for visiting, leaving comments and just being awesome. People from over 115 different countries have stopped by! Wow! A special thanks to Canada and Australia for so many visits! At the beginning of the year I set a goal for myself, to have a post every day. I’m extremely happy to report that I accomplished that goal! Today marks my 366 post for 2012! I also am happy to report that I have had over 100,000 visitors this past year. So, for me this has been an amazing year and I have all of you to thank!

For today’s post I have a birthday card that friends of mine asked me to make for their mom. I was told that it should have a winter theme and that she likes owls and here is what I came up with.

The base of the card is Sahara Sand Card Stock and for the background I embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The branch is form the Take Care Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso and cut out with my Paper Snips. The little owl is punched out with the Owl Builder Punch from a piece of Sahara Sand and his eyes are Whisper White, Pool Party and Basic Black. His little vest is a teeny tiny sneak peek at the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper**. I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount him to the card. The greeting is from the Wacky Wishes Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party. A nice simple card with both of the requests added. It was good to use the Owl Punch, he was feeling a little neglected! I hope you like the birthday card as much as my friend’s mom did. Thank you for you visit and I’ll see you next year! πŸ™‚
