Owl be Home for Christmas Blog Hop!!

Hello Friends!  Welcome to the Owl Be Home For Christmas Blog Hop!!


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 Random.org.

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!
