Now for my projects. The owl image in this set made me think of camping trips we made when we were younger . . . of girl scout camp in those musty cabins, of sleeping bags with plaid lining . . . anyone else remember going to a pine lodge in Wisconsin? Anyway, I so wanted to make a luminary the minute I saw the owl and I found a piece of plaid paper in my stash that reminds me of the lining in a sleeping bag we once owned. I had tons of fun with it. First shot is in the daytime and I took a picture of it lit up in the dark.
Next I wanted to try my hand at a CAS card. Now here is where I have to thank my children for being so very helpful . . . we have our house for sale and when we have a showing they all run around and 'put things away.' The problem is, they just stuff things into any nook and cranny they can find. I've lost the electric bill and found out later someone put it in the Betty Crocker cookbook, the phone bill, my address book . . .and someone mislaid this stamp set that I had out. I inTENDED to use that cute little swirly owl stamp on this card but poof! Someone has put the stamp set away who knows where. You know when I'll find the stamps . . . some time next week long after the hop is over! Anyway, I had washed this stamp after making the luminary and still had it, thank goodness, so I used it on this card, which took almost no time to make. Just a little pop of color, a sentiment, and I have something ready to put in the mail. Thanks for looking. Happy hopping and good luck!
Here then is the hop order. Friday, August 13-Owl Be There
