What a cute card! I was wondering where the owl came from - I'll have to look for that Cricut cartridge because that's too cute. Love the tan with the red and blue rather than white. I'll have to try that too. I became a follower.

AllisonG said...

Okay, I clicked on the button that says "follow this blog" on the badge for networked blogs, but it didn't add my pic. So, I'll try to subscribe via email. If that doesn't work, I'll be really sad!

LOVE the L/O for this card and the distressing and the sentiment. I like the owl, but the two strips over his middle kind of look like teeth and make him look a bit like a monster, LOL take another look :)

This card is really awesome! You have such a great creative eye. I would never think of putting the typical patriotic colors with browns, and it looks BEAUTIFUL! I just can't get over how cool it looks! Wish I could think more creatively like that. Thank-you for the inspiration to "be different"! I have to try this.
