Have you noticed? These critters are everywhere...
This past weekend I was at Hobby Lobby, and while flipping through their in-house scrapbook magazine I even saw owls there! In fact, it was a QuicKutz Aquarius font rearranged to be an owl. How cute! I quick snapped a picture with my phone's camera - and ran home to try it out.
This is what I had to work with...(crummy at best for seeing the detail)
but I pulled out my Aquarius and with only a few cuts...
I made this...
Isn't he CUTE? And YES - I'm aware of the fact that the necessary letter/numbers to make this little guy spell out "B4 BOOB". But I figured that would be a great way to remember what you need to cut out. Right? BEFORE BOOB...and you get an owl. In fact, let's just name this little guy "Boobie". Of course, you could also add a "U" and then he becomes more of a rotund owl, preparing to take flight...
He might be the CUTEST!
So you remember this one by saying "B4 YOU BOOB". Like the answer to a question..."hey honey, are we going to eat dinner before or after the movie?" The answer is "before, you boob!".
Now you'll never forget it!
So I put everything together, cut out some more letters from this favorite font of mine...and got this...
If you look at this card closely you'll see that I've been experimenting with my new COPIC markers. Each red letters was shadowed with this marker. I just traced around the lower right hand edges of everything. Looks pretty cool, if I do say so myself. Boobie the Owl was also shadowed with the grey, and his tummy was filled in with YR-24. Very fun to try some new things out!
Okay - big stuff going on today that I need to get focused on. Last football game of the season, which means last marching band performance as well. I can't believe it!
Time flies folks - take time to enjoy it!
