We are so happy you are here! This is the first stop in the hop today! We have all made some super cute owl themed projects to share with you! You will not only get some inspiration~ but you could win prizes, too! I am offering ONE lucky hopper a really fun prize. You must FOLLOW and COMMENT at all of the stops to have a chance to win the Grand Prize! There will be lots of other candy offered along the way!

Please be sure to tell me you followed all of the rules at the last stop in the hop at our Pinque Peacock Blog! I will be choosing a winner from there!

 Here's the Grand Prize! (you can click on any photo and it will enlarge it)

SEVEN Darice Embossing Folders, 8 Small See D's Stamp Sets, One Large Stamp Set and....

Some pretty Webster's Pages goodness, Some TH Distress Embossing Powder, and some Martha Stewart tinsel. 

I would not be surprised if more things make it into that package before I ship it out! Hint, Hint! :)

I will draw a winner right after Christmas using

So, I have a few creations to share with you today! My first one is really simple but I think it turned out pretty cute. Here it is......

I started with a canvas and covered it with papers. The little tree and all of its layers were cut from the Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge at 7 inches. The owl stamps and sentiment are all by Hero Arts and the set is called Owl Christmas. I colored all of the 7 owls with my Copic markers. (Each owl represents someone in my family. Yes, I am blessed with 5 children!! :) ) I am going to hang this up in my living room. 

My 2 projects are cards. I just love these stamps!! My SFF Jessica got this set for me for my birthday and I have used them tons! 

The stamps are by The Craft's Meow. I colored in the images with my Copic markers. I love to add twine or my favorite 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon to my cards! 

My last creation is a small shadowbox I found new in the box at Goodwill for just $1! 

Here's a closer up view with the door open....

The cute little owl was cut using the Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge. The little hat I just hand cut with my Cutterbee scissors. Look at that cute little bow on the owl's hat! I made that using the 3 Girl JAM Bow Maker. You can make perfect bows every time!! The crinkle ribbon is also by 3 Girl JAM in Ice Blue. Did you notice that cute polka dot button on top of the washi tape strips?That was made by us over at Pinque Peacock. I love how it matches my little owl. 

That's all of my projects today. Thank you SO very much for taking the time to hop! I wish want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season!

Next you will head over to my sweet friend Teresa's Blog!!

Here is the full, amazing line up in case you get lost along the way!

Shrooms and Blooms Blog Hop

Welcome to the Shrooms and Blooms Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Jenn's Blog, then you are on the right track! If you just stopped by and would like to start at the beginning, please go back to Jenn's Blog.

 We are so happy to have you join us today! You won't want to miss out on any of these whimsical mushroom projects!

There will also be other blog candy along the way! Make sure you return to Jenn's Blog and link up to be in the drawing for the goodies :)

For my first project, I made a quick little card.

I started off with Kraft cardstock and then used some patterned papers from the Bo Bunny Apple Cider collection. I stamped right on a printed paper, then colored in parts of the image with Copic markers. I inked all of the edges with Vinatge Photo Distress Ink then added some little hearts and twine and's done. The stamp is a Itty Bitty by Unity that my friend Jessica gave. Thanks, Jess!

Here's my next project that I made to share.

For this project I started with a 35 cent wood frame that I picked up at Goodwill. I painted it with acrylic paint and then glitter blasted it with Krylon Glitter Blast Spray Paint. I used the Paisley Cricut cartridge to cut the mushroom and "totally". The little flowers are made from felt and were in my stash. The sentiment stamp is by K. Andrew Design from the set "Owly Hoo". I pop dotted the butterfly for extra dimension.

Thank you so much for hopping with us today! I know you will get lots of inspiration from this list of talented crafters!

    For this card I used 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Holly Berry, Pinque Peacock Fabric Covered Button, stamp by Unity, EK Success tree punch,  and some pretty patterned papers. I fussy cut the little snow people out of the patterned paper and hand cut a heart out of fabric to add to the button.

    For this card I used 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Aqua Splash, a tiny Pinque Peacock flower, Unity stamps, patterned papers, and some pretty orange square jewels. I just love that little penguin!!

    For this card I used a large Pinque Peacock Fabric Covered Button, 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Aqua Splash and Holly Berry, patterned papers, Kraft cardstock, Stickles,  and Unity Stamps. (Thanks, Jessica, for letting me craft with you and use your Unity stamps and cute papers!!)  I am entering this card in the "SNOW" challenge # 137 over at  Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog.

    For my last project, I had picked up a wooden frame from Goodwill for 35 cents (a while back) and I painted it red. Then I sprayed it with silver glitter spray paint. I then covered the board with 3 Girl JAM burlap. I added lots of buttons with hot glue and used a couple of the Christmas Flair buttons by 3 Girl JAM. I just love them!! I used the 3 Girl JAM bow maker to make the tiny crinkle ribbon bow (in Mistletoe) that I added to the top. The pretty red flower is by us at Pinque Peacock. I added a few other embellishments and button art was done! This was so much fun to make!

    For this card I used the Gingerbread Cricut cartridge. I cut the stocking out at 3 inches. The papers are all by Echo Park from the Very Merry Christmas line.

    For my last project I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge. I cut the little bag out at 4 inches and the stars at 1/4 and 3/4 inches. The stamp is by CTMH.

    A Wonderful Season of Love

    Hi all! How's everyone doing today? I was able to get in my craft room for a bit this morning and I made a cute little card to share with you. I used one of our Pinque Peacock corsage/stick pins. Here's my card!
    For this card, I used one snowman punch by Ek Success. I used my cutterbee scissors to cut the top hat and turn it into a stocking cap. Here's what the punch looks like.
    I cut out 2 snowmen with white glitter cardstock. I cut them out so they faced opposite directions.
    Then did my magic to turn one into a snow woman and then colored them with Copics. Just so you know, copics don't work the best on glitter paper. lol
    The sentiment stamp is by CTMH, I used a little punch for the red heart. The ribbon was from my stash and the stick pin is one I made for Pinque Peacock.
    We will have tons of unique stick pins, flowers, and fabric covered buttons in our store very soon! Here's the blog Pinque Peacock, we'd love to have you become a follower!

    I hope you like my card for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment! I will come back and visit you if I know you were here!

    Have a crafty fun day!
