Owly Hoot Delight

Welcome to the Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky
The theme is: Give a Hoot: use an owl and in honor of Earth Day, something recycled on your project
Ok, I have an confession, I have been on holidays the past fortnight, and the only things I brought with me were a few CC Designs stamps, to practice my coloring and some K Andrew Designs Stamp Sets, so for the last few posts I have only used these supplies. Now the card that I had made for this Challenge post was a Cricut Owl, all finished and just needed a sentiment. As I had already packed my stamps I grabbed the card an thought I put it in my bag....BUT NO it must be at home cause it is not here with I had to make do with the supplies I have... SO after that story here is my card.....

I Have used an Owl, just in a bit different way!! As he was the only one who got to come on holidays with me he had to go atop of Mushroom Girl, she is a CC Designs stamp, and the OWL is from the K Andrew Designs Stamp set Hoot Owl Image Stamps 

Now the recycled part of my card has 2 elements. First is the ribbon at the top, while we have been on holidays my daughter was playing in the park and found this ribbon on the ground, she promptly brought it to me in case it was "a good find" for our crafting!! I'll say it was, it fitted perfectly, so recycled ribbon!! And the second is the fake Kraft cardstock that I have used as the base is actually the inside of the Caramel Coffee Box!!

I thought the clever part is the bit across the bottom is the top tabs from the box!! 

The rest of the card is made from Kaisercraft paper pad "Tiny Woods" that is just new out and it is full of owls and woodland stuff!! 

Then to finish it off I have used the K Andrew Designs Stamps set Owly Hoo Sentiments  and added this to the card, not bad for limited supplies and some recycled things!! 

So join us at Getting Cricky for this challenge, can't wait to see what you create!! 

Have a Crafty Day, Cheers Jennie

I love how your daughter brought you the ribbon and said it was perfect for crafting. That is too cute. What an adorable card. I love the owl on top of the girls head. The box idea is great! I never would have guessed that was a box that you stamped on. What a fun idea!
