Whooooo Hello You're a Hoot Thanks!

(SUPPLIES  papers:  Echo Park 6x6 "Hello Summer",
"So Happy Together", and My Mind's Eye Fly a Kite "Soar" Fly paper;
EAD "Owl Friends" stickerz (owls and sentiments);
Fiskars cloud punches;
SU white gel pen and chocolate chip marker)

 Do you have an abundance of certain themes in your stash?  When I first started stamping I collected lots of stamps of pears, leaves, flowers, and dragonflies.  Now I also like cute birds, specifically owls.
(SUPPLIES  papers:  Echo Park 6x6 "Hello Summer",
 My Mind's Eye Fly a Kite "Spring" Stars, 
October Afternoon "The Thrift Shop";
EAD "Owl Friends" stickerz (owls);
My Mind's Eye Lush 2 Buttons Orange;
The Twinery "Cappuccino" twine;
My Pink Stamper "Punny-licious" sentiments;
Spellbinder's Nestabilities scalloped circle die;
SU  chocolate chip marker and 1 3/4" circle punch)


I have been hoarding a sheet of EAD "Owl Friends" stickerz because these owls are so darn cute!  But every week I see my blog friend, Amy T. and more recently sweet Rose use their EAD products to create lovely cards.

Truthfully, I have tried to make cards from this sticker sheet quite a few times, but then a card does not evolve.  I have had a pile of papers I chose to coordinate with the stickers on my floor for a couple of weeks.  After I saw Rose's recent post using EAD, I made up my mind to create something with my EAD owls.  I am so glad I did!  These cards turned out super cute (can I say that?)  I want to give them to my daughter's resource teacher for a back-to-school teacher gift for the first day of school.  He is fabulous; he was my daughter's teacher when she was in 2nd grade and she will have him again for fifth grade.  I am so happy for her!  She has a strong team of teachers this year.  Yay :)

Happy Friday!
