Owl Card

Inspired by Jennifer McGuire (Creating Keepsakes). Love the simplicity/ rustic quality of string! Used a circle punch to create the faux-scallop border.

Thought/ poem for the day... Brings a tear to my eyes every time!

"Time which passes swiftly by
won't stop to hear us, though we cry
for days long gone and smiles missed,
For damp curls that we should have kissed,
Before they went away"

Inspiration Mini Book

I made this for a girlfriend. Each page illustrates a different paper crafting technique. I keep an ongoing list of ideas from mags and websites. A good wee present idea.
