A "Wise" Card...

Friday, September 3, 2010

Hey there!  I finally have a minute to post this card.  It's been done for a few hours now and I'm just now getting time to write this up.  I am so happy it's Friday and I can't wait to get this long weekend started.    

The idea of this card was sparked when I was browsing through SCS and saw that the Free 4 All challenge for today was to use birds on your card.  I colored my owl with markers and tied a piece of burlap string by his feet to make it look like he's sitting a branch, or nest, or something.
The sentiment on this card says: "A wise owl once said..." and on the inside: "Happiness is not having what you want.  It is wanting what you have. -Unknown".

Have you all noticed the new Papertrey Ink sets I've been using lately?  No, I didn't go on a shopping spree and break all my Frugal Friday rules.  My friend Elisabeth from Pennsylvania let me borrow a whole stack of her PTI stamps.  Her daughter and my daughter are pen pals and our love paper crafting immediately sparked a connection between us.  Sadly, I'll be sending her stamps back soon, but it was so much fun while it lasted!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!!!

What a cute card. The little piece of burlap glued on for a "branch" is a great idea. And I love that adorable little sentiment.
