Yoo Hoo!

This is my first....scrapling that is. A scrapling is the left over piece of cut cardstock. I've been told they're generally 1.25" to 2.25" in width and 5.25" high. I made mine 2.25" wide.

Edit to add: I forgot to tell you why I actually made this card. You see, this week's CCEE challenge was supposed to be a Scrapling. But since we changed the challenge on Frances for her birthday, I made a different owl card for her instead. I got buzzed by her and was told I wasn't getting by without making one....so here's my scrapling Hoots! Happy? *grin*

I received these darling "What a Hoot" (Clear Dollar Stamps) owl images from a stamping friend who I admire greatly! Her talent has no boundaries I tell ya!! She's an amazing stamper and just as sweet as she is talented. I had the honor of meeting her at CHA too. Woot! Ya'll probably already know her work, and if not, you're in for a treat. Head on over to Kim's blog: Paper in the Works.

I colored the owls with copics and paper toled them. The flourish branches are Doodle Parts (Spellbinders). The flowers were made with a Carl CarlaCraft Punch, and the buttons are from the Porcelain (Basicgrey) collection.

See that little clip thingy on the side? Love that little bugger. It's a Paper Fastener by 7-gypsies and has prongs on the inside. All ya do is squeeze it together and it grips. Way cool and sweet. You can get it at Michelle's store: Stamper's Dream

Michelle also has all the new JustRite products. Click HERE to see what's new. I'll have a project to show ya real soon. Love their new stuff!!

Hope you're having a terrific day!
Happy Stamping!
