Adorable card. The owl is super cute :)

I have 6 or 7 done. I decided that I was going to send out home made cards to the people it would mean something to and store bought cards that I got at an awesome discount right after Christmas at TJMaxx last year.

Lol! That's funny! I sent out hand made cards last year to most of my friends and family. The in-laws received store bought cards. I hope to make my own again this year. Since I started making cards for the card swaps at Anysoldier.com I forget about myself sometimes. I have created the layout for the 20 Christmas cards I am making for the swap. Now I have to think about family. I love the Owl in the sweater! I am glad I am not the only one who sings to their own beat! ;)

What a cute card Pryn! I have a sister and niece that both love owls and I always use them as an excuse to buy some. I have a set of owls in sweaters and I love them! LOL Thanks for some inspiration to get mine out and use them.

Thanks!
