365 Cards - #92 Super Sketchy Sunday

Super Sketchy Sunday over at 365 Cards today and the layout was this. . .


And this is what I created based on that sketch.  I finally played with my new Cricut cartridge which is Storybook and I think I am in love lol.  It does sooooo much!!  When I cut the owl out and put it together I placed it on the card and then decided that the owl had to be a girl so a piece of coloured cord had to go on to achieve the girl look hehehe.  Oh I am going to have so much fun with this cartridge and the other one I got from my youngest daughter was Hello Kitty.  So now my total amount of cartridges is 3.  They are so expensive here I cannot afford to buy too many.  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend ours is over here in Australia as it is now Sunday night at approximately 11.01pm as I type this post.  But next weekend is the Queens birthday weekend so we get a long weekend yay!! That will mean possibly another day down at stamp camp depending on whether my daughter Courtney can get the extra day away from the children. . .fingers crossed.
Well that is it for this evening so . . .
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Sage Shadow, Kraft and Real Rust cardstock.  SU Urban Oasis designer paper.  SU Owl Together Now stamp set.  Kaisercraft Pearls.  Pale green cord from my stash. Cuttlebug Swiss dots and Swirls and Birds embossing folders.  SU Basic Black, Sage Shadow, Real Rust stamp pads.  Ranger Distress Ink.

Michelle ~ Well OWL be. Love your card and great minds think alike. I will have to look for that cartridge with the owl. I too only own 3 I buy them while on sale because I refuse to pay the normal $89 price here. I think the most I have paid for one is $30 with shipping.

Now how cute is this!! I can see why you're in love - that little owl is just too sweet - and I LOVE how you decided to make it a girl :). I know what you mean about the cricut cartridges - they're expensive here too! It's been a long time since I bought one because of that!

Whoo Hoo - that is so cute Michelle, I am back in the world of blog and card making - yippee. I think - no I know I have withdrawals. Thank you for your concern and comments on my blog, I was sick and then I had to get ready to go away for the weekend - for the first time in 3 years, we went to Noosaville and it was very nice and of course I went to a couple of scrapooking shops while I was there and brought a few more stamps and more paper - LOL. Don't you just love the Storybook cart and you are right they are sooooo expensive in Australia, I buy mine from Hallmarkscapbook.com, I found them to be very cheap and you can have 2 carts posted in a bag for $13. I also purchased my Nesties from America - Memorymiser.com for $53 a set of 4 - bargain - in Australia you pay $55 and up for 1 part of a set. I hope to be able to get back into my craft room today or tonight to make some cards.
Hugs
