Paper Pieced Owl

I made this little 4 x 4 card a long time ago... before I started focusing on my wedding invitations and lost ALL of my readers.
Out TOPS girls are OWLS and I got to thinking I could easily make my own little owl from paper. This was a quick and easy paperpieced owl (from scraps), with button eyes, with piercing and a quick THANK YOU stamped on Kraft simple.

I probably won't be posting on this blog for some time yet. The wedding invitations ARE coming along nicely. ALL of the paper has been cut and scored. MOST of the stamping and punching has been completed. I've got a little more of that left and then ASSEMBLY.
275 didn't seem like a HUGE number of invitations until I started making them. BUT it is a labor of love and I really am enjoying every minute of it. It consumes ALL of my spare time. Even housework has gone to the wayside until they are completed. I hope that will be before we leave for Brian's graduation so I can take them with me. I have 20 days to do it! Wish me luck!
I'll try to be back soon!

Super sweet card! Wish I was closer so I could help with those invites. I can't believe it's so close... Miss you!

Love the card and you did a great job on the owl. I love the piercing too... I made all the invites when my son got married two years ago. It was ALOT of work. Especially since I water colored all of the Calla Lilly's. My daughter is getting married in June and I have been busy making stuff too. She bartered with a friend to make all of her invites. They traded services. She did all her friends hair(bride and bridesmaids) for her wedding and her friend is doing all the invites and photography for our's.. Works for me!!
