A Set of Owls
So now I can finally post that it is Amy's Birthday and I'm sending her some well wishes today! (I screwed up with my pre-posting yesterday, ugh!) Happy Birthday Miss Amy!
Amy Tsuruta was one of the first designers I followed when I started my blogging journey. She's got such a kind soul and has left encouraging comments for me time and time again, and I can't thank her enough! Amy caught my attention with her use of patterned paper, and she still amazes me to this day of the wonders she creates-both in cards and scrapbook layouts. Fabulous eye for patterns, colors, sewing, embellishments, the list goes on! Pop on over to her blog Tsuruta Designs and wish her well today!
Still trying out and practicing with the new Glimmer Mists that I purchased from Practicing Creativity Designs. I decided to make two owl birthday cards because, well, I still wanted to surprise Amy (the surprise being which one is actually sent to her!). The pink card was inspired by this pendant at Cathy Walter's Etsy Shop for the Etsy Inspired Challenge.
I have the great honor to be on the Schlosser Design Team with with Amy, as well as Laurel, who is having some awesome blog candy right now!
