Little Owl Family

Hi there! My husband and I are going to a couples baby shower this afternoon for our friends who are expecting their first baby in April! So, I thought I'd pop in really quickly to show you the card I made for them.

The invitation suggested that each couple bring a children's book for the baby's nursery, so we are taking along one of my very favorites: Little Hoot.

It's a really cute story about an owl who wants to go to bed at night (like all of his friends), but his parents insist on him staying up all night because he's an owl! HA!

I wanted my card to go along with the owl theme, so I created a little owl family using DeNami Design's Owls Stamp Set PF32. I also used Jen Del Muro's most recent "Sketch For You To Try":

I handstamped the plaid strip using the Three Line Border N128 and the polka dot background using Medium Polka Dots N136 (both from DeNami Design). The woodgrain behind the owls is from Papertrey Ink.

Hope you're having a fun weekend!!! Thanks for stopping by today!
