owl be clean and simple

this is the first time i have played along with caardvarks, and the challenge this time is 'clean and simple' - sounds easy enough, right? i think sometimes i fluctuate between clean and simple and just crazy!

i do love owls, and it's been a while since i worked with fabric and scra-fts (that's my new shorthand for scrapbooking related crafts!), so i wanted to give it a whirl! i just hand cut the owl with some fabric scraps, and sewed the legs by hand. as for the final touchof the owl, i thought two button eyes would be the cherry on top! for the border of my card, i used my sewing machine - something i always love to do!

the saying was stamped on with my hero arts individual letters, and vwa-la! well, almost vwa-la...i tried to resist using a tiny heart...i really, really did...but alas, as you can see, i decided to add one on anyway! *whistle*

see? easy peasy and simple too!


  1. Super cute! Love the button eyes and the little stitched legs :)

  2. Can I get a stuffed hootie just like the one on your card!!!!!!! Eakkkkkkk! We may have to make one!

  3. Hope you don't mind me stopping by your blog to tell you about Papercraft Star (just in case you don't already know!) We'd love to have you enter some of your inspired projects in our challenges there. We're also having a DT call soon and want to tell papercrafters like you about the call! There is still time to enter our PTI gift certificate drawing too!
