VCMP for OWH - Challenge #7

OK - Challenge #7 and I'm still in the party!  This challenge is "Christmas for kids - big and small" - make two cards - one for a Christmas Any Hero and the other for a hero to give to a child.  This forced me to open up my Christmas papers and get in the spirit.
My first card is for a child, using an owl from Lettering Delight's "Nancy's Happy Holidays".  I totally forgot that I had this cutting set and was pretty happy with the result:
My AnyHero Christmas card started using a glitter accent, but when the glitter came off the accent, I switched gears and found an ornament that I made last year.  I paired it with this Hero Arts stamp, using OWH Sketch #80 for inspiration:
I'm sweltering today in my craft room with 90 degree heat!  I'd rather be making beach cards.
I need to correct myself - I didn't get to select the Redonkulous image - I was given the lovely wedding couple image.  I can't wait to use it!


  1. Great way to use the sketch. Love your colors, too!

  2. For starters, what a great blog title!

    This little owl is adorable -- just so darned cute. The colors are so unexpected, but work together really well. As for the owl's details... Well, it's easy to see why you area a FCCB Top 5 recipient. :)

    Your ornament is very pretty. Again, unexexpected -- but great -- colors.

    Thanks for playing along with this VCMP challenge!
