You're the best

I forgot to share the card I made for my hubby for Father's day!  He likes Owls and Ravens so I liked the idea of using an Owl for his card.  The owl was done on the Cricut machine, his branch had to come from a tree trunk right?  Hope that is what that looks like, it was so funny I didn't put the card in an envelope I just handed him the card after we got home from church that day and he said oh now that's cool, and I said well glad you like it and he said Oh is this one for me :)


Cricut -- Give a hoot cartridge, ink shading and Liquid Pearls in Chestnut for the eyes
Tim Holtz -- Woodgrain embossing folder, inking on the raised parts and sides
WeRmemory Keepers -- Anthologie papers
Hot off the press -- Dazzles- tiny words and phrases stickers, colored with markers

I need to get my cricut out and make up a few more things, I like having them done already so when I want to put a card together they are ready to add to my card.

I am sharing my card over at Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration link up, why don't you stop by and check out what the others are posting this week.

I want to thank all of you for praying for our friend Randy he is doing much better now, he is out of ICU, they had to drain his lungs of blood and that was quite painful but he is feeling better afterwards.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  We actually went a couple of days without any rain so that has been nice.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say Hello,

Connie

What a cute owl card. I've used a similar owl for making cards as well.

Oh, that's so cute! Love the tree trunk and the flowery shapes for the eyes. Good idea to have parts ready to go. Good to hear your friend is doing better, but what an ordeal and so scary.

Great news about Randy : )
Cool card : ) ~ I gave my hubby a father's day one too, any excuse to appreciate your other half is good!
Yes! No rain! I'm not sure if that's quite grammatical, but you know what I mean. lol

Oh, Connie, how adorable! I know your hubby loved it! So glad and thankful to hear that your friend Randy is doing better. That sure was scary, and it must have been painful. Prayed that he will be feeling much better and get out of the hospital soon. Hugs!

Good morning, lovely friend! You have made a darling owl card and I'm sure your husband was thrilled with it :) My mom gave my dad the cutest stuffed/plush owl for Father's Day...when we saw the owl while shopping it reminded us of my dad :)

Thanks for joining Roses of Inspiration this week. Hugs to you!
