Sweet 'n Sassy's "Owl Be There"

Good Morning Paper Crafters. Today I'm sharing the other 2 cards I created using "Owl Be There" by Sweet 'n Sassy.   Such a cute little friendship set.  I was inspired to create these when I saw a Color Throwdown challenge posted last week, to use the colors from the Mabel paper pad by My Mind's Eye.  If you are like me you have a pile of those little 6 x 6 paper pads laying around. The small paper pads are perfect for paper piecing stamped images because the patterns are so small. So think of all the options for creating your own little set of cards using this set and your paper pads.  

Soooooo many possibilites with this image!  Wouldn't the image be cute with a little bow on the head for a girl, oh and what about a party hat??? That would make a great birthday card! You could have him sitting on top of a birthday gift. I'm trying to think of other things we could tuck under his wing .... what about a book and a graduates hat on his head .... or a balloon.

Another great idea would be to put two of them standing side by side with their wings touching so they look like they are holding hands. There just may be enough room between the wings to have him holding a banner. We can have a lot of fun with this little guy!

I'd love to know what idea's you have. If you would like to share an idea or a card you created using this little guy just leave me a comment with a link to your card.

Hope you're day is a hoot!
hugs, Melisa
