MoJo Monday Card Sketch #79

Wowsa, what a week. My Internet has been down for 2 days. I felt so lost!!! I ended up spending my spare time doing some spring cleaning to my house and organizing things in my scrapbook room. I have this big box of scrap paper that I have been building upon for many years. So I got it out and separated all the card stock colors into baggies. That was a job, but well worth the time to do. I had lots of good paper pieces that I can now use. Its something I have wanted to do for a while. It feels good to get those kinds of things done. So I guess really it was a good thing to have no Internet. I got lots accomplished elsewhere. Now I did stop to have a little fun along the way. Last night I finished my Mojo Monday card. I think that this one is my most favorite of all that I have done recently. I got this little stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamp a while back. I just totally love this little Owl. Now I can see why Owls are so popular. He is a cutie pie. Very happy with this card. It might be hard to tell, but he has stickles on the white area of his body. Also I stickles the leaves and popped up the little pink flowers. I used a example I found in the Clear Dollar Stamps Gallery. I was not sure how to use the pieces to the set, so I had to go hunting for ideas. The stamp set comes with tree branches, leaves, flowers, 2 sizes of Owls, and wings. You just kind of put it together as you need to use it. Once I found the idea, it was easy to figure out. Anyway, its one of those cards that you can appreciate better in person. Even my husband liked it. Most times he just says "Cool", but this time he said it was very cute. He liked the big eyes on the Owl. This will definitely be a card that I make again. Thank you Moj0 Monday for the great sketch!!! Totally Awesome and fun!!! So now I am off to make more of this card and maybe create another idea with this sketch!!!

Awesome job. The owl is adorable but for some reason the pink flowers with the insets of stones really set the card to the highest level. Job well done!! Jimmie

This is a really cute card. I haven't made any cards in such a long time! You may have just inspired me with this one! Of course I'd need to clean my craft room first, so my enthusiasm will probably fade!
