Time Out #17

It's great to have such wonderful friends in this cyber world we call blogging.  I have to give credit to a couple of them for the card I made, just under the wire I might add, for this week's Time Out challenge - "Birds of a feather flock together".

When I saw this card of Sarah's over at Funky Fossil Designs, I knew I had to CASE her and make a card from some stamped owls that Joyce from Cards by the Sea sent me a while ago.  I told Joyce I loved owls but had only one stamp so she sent me a packet of cardstock that she stamped with her rather large collection.  Then to top it off, she sent two small owl stamps that she had duplicates of.  How's that for a great friend!

Aren't they just the cutest. I colored them with my limited supply of Distress Markers but those colors went perfectly with the paper from Happy Campers by WeRMemorykeepers. I didn't have what I thought was a great sentiment for the front so I left it blank but it's a birthday card for a friend who is a hoot and a half.  Inside it says "I hope your birthday is a hoot!"  She'll love it.

ETA:  With the encouragement from two design team members, I will also enter my card into the Inkspirational challenge.  I should have known to do that right from the beginning because that's where Sarah's card was going, duh. (head slap)

Thanks for stopping by and while you're browsing why not stop by and say hello to Sarah and Joyce.  They make some fabulous cards you won't want to miss.


  1. Oh, Bobby--this is just darling. I love how you colored this little owl family.to perfectly match your patterned paper. I went to check out the card that inspired you, and would you believe I have that stamp set, too? Yes, and I thought I stamped and sent you some. If not, let me know and I'll send some more owl love your way.

    1. Yes, you did send me some like Sarah's, Joyce, and I will definitely be using them in a similar card. Thanks again.

  2. Great to have blog friends, I agree! And these little owls are real cuties! So pleased that Satah's card I inspired you and this would also be good for the challenge at Inkspirational. Great to see you at TIME OUT x

  3. They are absolutely the cutest and I love your coloring. So glad you could play with us at Time Out!

  4. Super cute card! I was going to suggest you add it to the current Inkspirational challenge (theres still time!) but I see Sandie beat me to it! :-)

  5. Bobby, these are definitely a hoot! Love the long legs and googly eyes on these sweet little owls. I'll bet your friend will absolutely love this card. It's just darling. Bev

  6. Yep, blog friends are the best, Bobby ... these owls are such cutie patooties! Echoing Bev ... the long legs and googly eyes are just fabulous ... they have me smiling! Delighted you played along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

  7. Love these leggy owls and how they coordinate perfectly with the paper, Bobby! Thanks so much for the shout out - so kind! I am glad that you were able to get your owls out to play along at Time Out and Inkspirational :) Hugs x
