Wise Old Owl!

Happy weekend everyone. What a wonderful weekend it is too. It's way beyond the opening of the pools, the bbq's and baseball games. It's the time to remember those that have enriched our lives is so many way. A time to memorialize those that have passed on before. Have a wonderful and memorable weekend. 

A little something to share with you before this weekend sweeps us all away (uh, I am NOT saying that all of us live in the U.S. those of you way beyond have a great weekend toO!)

This is a Pink Persimmon set that I haven't inked up too much and I wanted to see what else I could do with it. Since it is also the time for school to end I thought this was appropriate:

I used the scallop stamp from Tea and Cake for the scallops on the sides. I have been kind of in love with these colors together, but I think its time to branch out now ; )
I used some Spellbinders tags and some PTI buttons and ribbon. After stamping the owl I went in and colored a few of his 'feathers' a bit darker with a copic. I also did some copic marker-ing over the wings.

Ok. thats all for now. I have a husband working from home today so that means I need to manage the kids a bit more and get out of the house! lots of errands to run to get ready for some weekend company.
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
loves to you
