Owl be your friend

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have another sketch challenge from  Stampin’ Up!’s SUCCESS magazine.  We’d love to see your interpretation of the sketch so hop on over to HSS and show us your creation.

For this project I decided to do a digital card using My Digital Studio.  I have just purchased the Two Step Owl Punch – Digital Download, Price: $0.95 and I wanted to use it for this card.  I love this punch and so fun to use.

Since this is a girl owl I decided to use the Cherry Cobbler Wallpaper DSP on the vest and Very Vanilla button latte.  So cute!  If you own MDS don’t forget to update your software with the new colors.  Click here to update your software.

The background is Textured Baja Breeze.  Love the Textured papers!  The Soft Suede distressed background, included with the purchase of MDS, is from the Distressed DSP and the frame is from the Sweet Pea DSP collection.  The Textured and Sweet Pea DSP collections are available as add-ons.  If you don’t have these consider purchasing them.  The price is right and they’ll never retire.  How cool is that!  You can purchase any of the digital downloads even if you do not own My Digital Studio software.  You can use the images with any graphics program that allows you to import images into your document.  The other great thing about purchasing digital downloads is they are available to use instantly as soon as you pay.  I love that…instant gratification.

So much for the cool weather

No cool weather anymore.  It’s back to being summer.  I was hoping it would last so it could offer inspiration for my fall crafts.  As I was trying to think fall in 90 degree weather I decided to do an owl theme card.  I love owls.  I whipped up this card yesterday, 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, for my friend who needs to take it easy.  My hubby and I were invited to her house for dinner and I wanted to give her this card and remind her to relax.  She made a fabulous dinner.
