Merry Monday: Happy(?) or Stressed Out Holidays

I ran into Michaels last night for a bottle of Zip Dry glue with my coupon and this owl stamp jumped into my hands!!  His bugged-out eyes look just like mine during the lead-up to the holidays!!

Happy Holidays

I used the current sketch from Merry Monday.


I'm also submitting to Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes.

Just a quick post today - I'm still working on the final papers that I mentioned a few days ago.  They are going well - but they are just so big (and I'm just so obsessive) I'm sure I will take until the last minute to finish them up (Sunday by midnight).

  • Stamps: Stampendous Owl Tree, Simon Says Stamp Small Folded Banners Holiday
  • Paper: Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate
  • Ink: Memento Black, Copics
  • Accessories: Simon Says Stamp banner dies, Martha Stewart twine, Stampin' Up embossing folder

I'm not usually too fond on owls, but this guy is really cute and I think we all get kind of bug eyed as we approach the holidays! The twine and coloring of his hat and the tree make him very festive! I'm glad you got to share this guy with us at Merry Monday this week!

This is just darling. I know that if I were at Michaels and saw that adorable owl stamp, I would have kidnapped it, if it didn't jump into my cart of its own free will.

Well I'm glad he jumped in your hands cause he sure made a cute card. Love the woodgrain embossing on the base mat. I keep eyeing several of those SSS die/stamp sets. Might have to spring for this one. Hugs!
