This group has a wonderfully fun and friendly bunch of ladies and there are new and lasting friendships to be made, if this sounds good, then you definitely want to join us next year.

Thanks for stopping by. Your next stop on the blog will be Kym at Artful Imagination
I know Kym will have a great project for you, so, hop on, Rockers!


  1. Carolyn, what a cute and fun card. I love your owl and thanks for explaining the scallops around your large circle. Such a simple technique (once it is explained), makes you wonder why it never crosses one's mind. TFS

  2. I KNEW it would be awesome and include a bird! LOL

  3. As usual you have an awesome card. I just love the Owl punch and can't wait until mine comes in the mail. Thanks for sharing.

  4. You've used that DSP very creatively here Carolyn! It looks great with that owl.

  5. Okay, this card absolutely needs a spew alert--that's the *perfect* expression on the owl's face for your sentiment, Carolyn! Very, very, very cute!

  6. Great card! That little owl is so cute. I love the paper you used on his little belly and the googly eyes. :)

  7. Too cute, Carolyn! I've been wanting to see some examples of the new owl punch. TFS.

  8. Well look at him HOVERING over the branch. Now I have to sit and look at him and decide if he is taking off or landing. And then I'll have to make up a story to go with whichever I decide. But that will take some time so I think I'll finish the blog hop first.

    TOO cute!

  9. You are making me like that owl!! Great job Queen of the Make and Takes

  10. What a cute owl card!! Love your other cards from the other days! Great! Thanks for sharing!!

  11. I love this saying! The owl turned out great, this is a really cute card. Thanks!

  12. I just love Owls. How did you ever think of v shape pattern for the chest??? Amazing choice really.

  13. Wings!!!! yea... I knew someone would give owl some wings sooner or later.... Great Job!!!!
