Howly Jowly Christmas

Hey there!  The Ribbon Carousel has a new challenge up this week by Wendy and it is a lovely inspirational picture.  There are a lot of directions one could go with it, I picked out the colors and "santa."  I just had to grab Jenny Suchin's fun Happy Hoo-lidays stamp set, and color up that cute Santa Owl!  Our sponsor this week is the awesome May Arts!  WooT!

Starting with a white panel, I rounded the corners, stitched a couple baker's twine rows, and stamped my sentiment and owl.  I then stamped my owl onto white cardstock, colored it, cut it out and adhered it to the panel with foam tape.

Here is a looksie at the graphic:

Thank you so much for stopping by!  It is a fun day at our house, as it's my hubby's birthday today.  I just love celebrating birthdays!  Have a great one my friends!
