The sugary sweet color palette in this collection lends itself to adding a bounce to your step and and a happiness to your heart as you create with cotton candy like pinks, ribbon candy stripes, peppermint greens as well as several shades of confectionary grape lollipop like hues.  A whimsical assortment of beautifully illustrated stamps showcase images of oramental bird houses, lovely trees and a wide selection of owl images which can be used to design for a wide variety of occasions. The fun and witty sentiments included add a playful charm making this a collection that will appeal to crafters of all ages.  Whether you wish to remind a friend or loved one how special they are and that you think they are "a hoot", or send an any occasion card just because "It's Owl Good", this sweet and light hearted collection is sure to brighten someones day and bring a smile to their face!

And, let's move along right to my creation...

I did something on this card that is something that I seldom do...and that is to ink all of the edges in colored ink other than brown!  LOL  I found it too bright, so I did land up inking a little brown over the colored hues just to tone them down a little!  

I also finished the inside of the card on this creation...
(my apologies that this photo isn't the greatest!)

..and here's a closer look at the owl in flight and sentiments...

This collection has so much potential.
So many wonderful sentiments to couple with adorable owl images!  A collection to use for so many different kind of occasions!

That's all for me today!
