Don't Lose Hope...says the little owl!

I love sentiment sets that do all of the work.  The Alley Way Stamps has a number of fun sets, the newest of which is called Life is Short.

Don't Lose Hope
This is truly a premade card - even the border!  I just added a little twine and the fun sentiment.  Then, because there wasn't any foliage above the sentiment - I saw this cute little owl from Tag-Alongs and decided he would sit up there quite nicely!!  I don't use premade very often at all - but I think the fun font and the meaning of this sentiment make the card special.

  2. Pre-made works for me, Kim ... the super sweet owl addition (with those fab eyes) compliments the background brilliantly ... the sentiment is just lovely! Anita :)
