Whimsical Owls

I'm back! I know it's been quiet here for a while...let's just say my mood hasn't been very upbeat these past couple of days. At times I would wish for everything around me to evaporate, leaving me in a vaccuum and staring at nothing. Intense, huh? Well, I think I quite need these days in my meandering life. They give me a perspective, help me clear my vision ahead and learn valuable things about myself.
Alright then, enough of my philosophy and over to this project I wanted to share with you. It's interesting that I chose a card I made with Owls in it. Owls - wisdom - wise old owl...I digress.

Here's the card -

These adorable owls are from Black Leaf Designs. Aren't they the cutest? Check them out and other fab images and projects from DT members at Black Leaf Studios.

The card itself was very simple to make - 6x6 card base in kraft, some background stamping, lots of inking on the edges, the owl digis printed out on white CS and coloured and cut out, the sentiment also printed out on white CS and cut out, the tree hand cut and fed into the crimper and the flowers punched out of patterned paper - easy peasy! (on the inside it says 'Happy Birthday'. But it could be anything really)

And so now, after my much needed being-in-the-void phase, I foresee creating and posting more often. It worked, see?

Happy crafting!

PS: Thanks to a special silent regular reader of my blogs! You made me feel great :) Will get back to posting regularly :)

Been going through the same phase..standing at the crossroads, too afraid to go in any direction, and so just staring aimlessly at everyone passing by!! That's exactly where I am right now...and welcome back..its been long..back with a bang i must say!! love the card..and the Kraft CS, super..love the idea of running the tree shape through the crimper..gives it a good texture..

p.s. girl could you give me a link to the gingham paper pack? if it is online?

Thanks a bunch

Hi Divya, We missed visiting the site... nearly a month. We OWLWAYS enjoy your CreaDiv designs. We also enjoyed OWL THE OWLS in the card, not because of the fact that I am OLD( NOT WISE)...It is really a Beautiful design. Creative layout.
Excellent. What next...?
