Happy Monday Bloggers!

We're coming up on the end of another month 
which brings us even closer to Spring!  YEAH!!!
It's also time for another fun challenge at Squigglefly!

This time around, we have a RECIPE for you ...
Use a piece of printed paper ...
some twine or twill ...
and at least one brad or button.

How about these cute 'Framed Owl' and 'Owl Frame Sentiment 3' images by Fawn Palmer!
Too cute and a clever play on words!

I brought both images into a Word document then printed it onto colorable card stock.
After coloring with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, I simply tied some baker's twine around it and added in a pink heart (Cheery Lynn Designs 'Two of Hearts' die) that was laying on my work table, strung the twine through two of the openings and tied a bow.  A little dot of glue on the back of the heart helps to keep it in place.

The heart brads are OLD and I'm sorry but I can't remember who the mfg. is.  They were purchased long before I started posting to my blog and identifying what was used on my creations (told you they were old!!)  LOL!

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at Squigglefly and if you need inspiration ... PLEASE, pop over and check out what the rest of the team has created!  AMAZING!!

Hope to see you there and thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Wishing you all a FABULOUS week ahead!

  2. Darlene this is darling! I love how you colored the tree! Your heart die and the little heart brads are great embellishments! I especially like how you tied the twine over the image instead of putting it under the image. It's very eye catching!

  3. Well, isn't this just the sweetest thing!!!! Cute and adorable card...and I too have a CLD heart laying on desk...hmmm...I had better use that super cute little owl....thanks for inspiring...after being gone, I need it!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
