You're a Hoot!


Happy Monday! We had an incredibly busy weekend - but one that was full of fun too! My youngest guy turned 12 on Saturday so we had a great time celebrating with him. On Sunday, we took part in a "dog transport" and helped deliver a rescue dog to an agency that has a new home lined up for him. It was a joy to help - especially as that same agency had a dog for us!! We adopted a sweet little 2-year old cockapoo. He's already found his way into our hearts. He needs some training which we've started already and he's a fast learner. It must be the poodle in him! (His tag says Kobi, but we've renamed him Guilder. Guilder will be getting a new tag later this week.) And today is my daughter's 20th birthday! Happy birthday, Erin!!


I returned to work last Monday and have been busy getting ready for the students' return next Tuesday.  This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is all about "Back to School" and I've made a little card to give to my youngest on his first day. He starts a new school next week. Usually, I tuck cards into his lunch but I'm thinking


The owl is a file (#64830) from the Silhouette store. Using the offset feature and a rectangle, I created a card base. I used some notebook pattern paper and gave it even more of a notebook feel with the use of one of My Craft Spot's Fancy Edges metal dies. I then used a sentiment from Tiny Tags 3 to stamp "You're a Hoot!" in the bottom corner.


Please head over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design team has created - and to link up your own "Back to School" project!
