I hope you're feeling OWL better

I used my Cricut to create this card. The owl was cut from the Just Because Cards cartridge and the branch he is sitting on was cut from the Create a Critter cartridge. 
I love using my Cricut when I need to come up with something quickly, as was the case for this card because I forgot that we had changed themes from Celebrations to Owls. I had made a card and prepared a post with a birthday card, which I will still post because they are always useful, but then I had to come up with a card that worked for the Owl theme in a hurry.

I added some googly eyes and glossy accent to the owl's beak and feet, wrote up a sentiment on some labels cut with Spellbinders dies and my Cuttlebug, cut a border with a Fiskars border punch and nobody would have been any the wiser, except maybe for the owl (ha ha).

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the card. Be sure to come back tomorrow to see what another designer comes up with.


  1. Fantastic card. Love the background paper it sets it off well. I've got to start doing this myself seeing more of has inspired me to use it. The owl is cute also. Thanks for sharing

  2. What a cute little card! I know I'd feel better if I were the one receiving it. Thank you so much for sharing...:-)

  3. Cute card, Linda. I don't use my Cricut nearly enough, but I think that's going to change soon. Love the sentiment; I know I'll be 'borrowing' that one. :)

  4. Cute card. I like that you personalized it with your own writing.

  5. Cute card, love the white owl. We have one that comes around our house.
