At the end of December I had a Simply Adorned class for a small group of ladies.  We had a nice afternoon stamping as we watched the Christmas snow melt away in the backyard.

The ladies requested an owl theme for one of the inserts because their school mascot where they work is an owl.  I wanted to use the cute owl punch.  He is just a little too big for this size charm – it is the 1″ x 1-1/4″ charm – the medium size of the three that Stampin’ Up! sells.

He is still cute in there – just set off to the side a little bit.  The background is from the Play Date Designer Series Paper.  The owl is made from the Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I liked using it because it was heavy weight textured card stock.

I hope you like this little charmed owl!

I have been working on my swaps for the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference.  I leave in 5 days!  I hope the weather isn’t bad because I’ll be driving up.  I’m signed up for four group swaps – I have two of them done and two left to go.  Then I also plan to make some card fronts for general swapping.  I’ll be busy the next several days working on all those swaps.
