Whoooo loves Christmas?

Happy Hump Day!

I guess it is only fitting to post a "critter" card on Hump Day, so today I have a Christmas Owl.  This was a digi from the Best of JustInkLined for 2012 CD that I purchased several months ago.  It was quite a bargain & I hope they have another one at the end of this year!  I almost didn't get it because it sounded too good to be true: over 200 digi images for $5. I thought they would be really horrible images at that price, but most of them are things I can use.

I colored him with pencils & Gamsol.  The sentiment is from Craft Smart & was in the dollar bin at Michaels a few weeks ago.  (I know a bargain when I see one so I grabbed it)  I used a Spellbinder die to cut it out & the acorn die is from Ellentina and one of the dies I got when we went to Kansas City last month. The paper is from my stash.

Rest up today.  They are saying several inches of snow & frigid temps for tomorrow! May I say again that "I HATE WINTER!!"   Ha ha  I like the snow, I just don't want to shovel it, push it, walk on it, or drive on it! Other than that, it's great!

Catch you later!


  1. This is a very nice image! You're darn right you know a bargain when you see one. Your coloring with the pencils turned out great, and your step card and colors make a fabulous outdoorsy, nature-themed Christmas card. I'm a little frustrated that my new printer won't take my Flourishes Classic White cardstock which I always print my digis on. Not sure what I'm going to do now.

  2. Wow, this owl image is just delightful. Owls are so in this year. I went to the Bealls outlet and saw all the cutest little Santa owls configurations you could possibly imagine. I had to run past....,they were calling my name and I already have "bears" and don't want to get involved with any more collections!!! Love that pinecone die too. This card is wonderful.

  3. Sherri, this is a beautiful Christmas Step card!! You did an outstanding coloring job on the owl (I love digi's), and I love the fancy tag from Spellbinders too. It was a perfect choice to stamp your sentiment on. Sherri, from my home to yours, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy your time with your daughter and her family. Be safe, and make memories!

    Big hugs,

  4. Sherri, this is gorgeous card. The owl colored up beautifully and that pinecone is awesome.

    I love this owl and you colored it so well. I am timid when it comes to coloring "critters" - I do big hair and big eyes better;) Love that pine cone die too and who who who doesn't like a bargain! LOL Big Hugs
