It's all about the OWL!

 Owls are everywhere and this week they are especially at Bitten by the Bug 2!  As I was searching through a plethora of owl images, I found this one I had never used from Storybook.  The sentiment is from Hoot n Holler!  I have never really had much success cutting sentiments before, but I finally broke down and got an Explore.  Wow, it really does cut!  So far, I'm liking it.  There is a learning curve to the Design Space for me, but I'm getting there!

I chose my colors from the Color Dare at Color My Heart.  Since I was busy learning the new machine and all, I didn't get projects done last week.  So, I figured I'd get my project in early this week!  ; )  My little owl is also flying Up, Up, and Away to the challenge over at Heart 2 Heart.

I used Saddle, Daisy White, Slate, Cranberry, Topiary, Indian Corn Blue, and Honey card stocks and inks from CTMH.  I embossed with the CTMH Chevron Embossing Folder.

Stamping on the inside included these CTMH Stamp Sets:  Joyful Birthday, In the Background, and Whooo's Your Valentine?

The CTMH New Idea Book is released in less than a week!  If you are wanting any of the current paper packs, visit KatiesCorner and place your order before August 1.  After that, it's all new papers!  They are amazing!!
