Hello, friends! Well, the snow they predicted in our area did not amount to much...at least not here in New Jersey. Here is the view I had outside my front door this morning...the grass and trees had a nice coating, but the roads were just wet (unlike the states north of here that are experiencing blizzard conditions...my thoughts are with them!)
Today, in between sons' soccer practices, daughter's gymnastics class, daughter's hair cut, entire family's laundry, and other usual Saturday duties, I was able to make a card for the current Hero Arts February Contest following the theme of love and lace. (I went with love for this card.)
I have had this Valentine card idea in my head for a while...Big Eyes perched on a Valentine's Day pencil. What do you think?
Stamps: Hero Arts (K5574) Big Eyes, (CG422) Zig Zag, (CL498) Celebrate Everyday
Inks: Hero Arts Punch chalk ink
Other: Hero Arts Sunshine Mixed Accents, Martha Stewart paper tape
This is a standard size card, and after I made it I realized it will obviously NEVER fit in an envelope. (Doh!) I don't care, though...I still like it!
I fussy cut the owl, made two slits for the pencil to slide through, and popped it up with pop dots. I also fussy cut the bottom edge so the white inside the card would show through.
Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your day!
