Anyway back to my card here! One day were we driving somewhere as a family and my dad says "Hey look!" and he pulls over, gets out a camera and everything and starts pointing out and taking pictures of this owl on a billboard. You guessed it, it wasn't real, only a decoy to scare away birds! To his credit, it was a very realistic one, not like the ones that are obviously plaster. Now owls show up periodically in gifts and things that I give him. I made this card using the owl from a mini Inkadinkado stamp set. The sentiment is from the same set and is broken into two pieces so you can use one part on the outside and the other for the inside. I can't remember what the other part says, I only wanted this part because I wanted to write my own thing on the inside. The outside says "A wise man once said.." and then on the inside I wrote "Hey look at that owl". He will get a kick out of it and that's why he is getting it late so I can give it to him in person. Stamp is Inkadinkado, paper from DCWV, image colored with Copics, and brads are from Making Memories.
If you have visited my blog before you know that my husband makes his own cards to give. Not only does he make the cards, he also has his own stash of supplies. This is the stamp that he made for his dad. I am not sure of all the supplies, but I think the mountains and maybe the tree came from one of my SU sets and the boat is from Stampscapes. He stamped those onto his paper and then drew in his lake line and then colored everything with his Prismacolor pencils.
