Owl Bookmark

After a very busy few weeks at work it has finally settled down and I can finally start to unwind at the weekend whilst leaving work where it belongs:  at work!

We had a nice quiet day today which meant I had my first chance to have a real good look at some SU goodies I purchased a couple of weeks ago {I think I'm safe to say this as am sure my hubby does not check my blog!}

Anyway, even though I do have a lot of crafting stuff I was lacking inspiration so treated myself to a pack of card of the latest InColours {or InColors} PLUS the matching 5 ink pads PLUUUS a pack of DSP that matched those colours, namely Patio Party.

And just as an extra bonus I also bought the Owl punch which I have always found adorable and which is featured here today.

The other totally practical thing I bought (I thought I'd better make the most of it and purchase enough to get me a Sale-A-Bration freebie...) was those sectioned plastic 12x12 scrapbook pages, like you see on Project Life, and had lots of fun today seeing if they fitted into an existing album I had - yes they did fit but once I'd loaded them all and closed it all up again I realised of course that some of them were in upside down..... I'll pull the album apart another day and fix that error of placement!

Enough rambling:  my project today was designed after I saw the Challenge over at Creative Corner Challenges which asked for "Designer Paper" and even though I could have used my brand new stuff I opted from some I have still from a couple of years ago from Stampin' Up!    Had sooo much fun putting the wee owl together, though I kept loosing his 'pupils' as they are so tiny - but in the end he came together nicely - with all colours matching the DSP I used of course LOL!

Other challenges entered are:
Stamping the with Dragon - Anything goes
Divas by Design - Anything goes

It is not a card {I tried to find 'rules and regulations' on Creative Corner blog but there was nothing obvious that says it has to be a card} instead this time I have made a bookmark for my son who loves reading - and loves to mark the pages with a bookmark!  I'm hoping to get it laminated so it lasts a bit longer that it would as it currently stands.

Love the owl. With his eyes looking up it looks like he's trying to read the book.
