woo woo made a boo boo...

Well, I am with a red face, wondering why I thought I shared a different card and not the same two in a row. Have I ever done this before? I can't remember.

I added a link to my Etsy store, on the right and a notice that I accept paypal. Then I realized that I didn't have a spot where you can get on the mailing list. Etsy & paypal send all these emails out on how to spread the word about your store and draw people in. I, being not the quickest at the figuring out how to add stuff onto my blog, actually figured it out! I mean we are not talking about jumping out of a plane, why did I put it off. Yep, that is one of my downfalls.

As promised, here is the card I thought I already shared, Shadow the owl.

He is just a patient as can be, waiting to deliver his message to someone special.  Owls are so 'in'
and they have been for a while. They are cropping up in everything and I saw a new batch 'pinned' on one of the boards I follow. I still gotta go back and check them out.   :)

This little man comes on his own, if you purchase him and I thought he would look good hanging out on the sign, also sold individually. I surrounded him with my distress ink, in Antique Linen and added some sparkle with my glitter and Quickie Glue pen. Now the sign has an area to add your own message, but my 'smile' just didn't fit it right. So, I made the pennant and popped it up. 
This round of cards is free of ribbon, so I cut out some flowers from the patterned papers I was using. {October Afternoon} I added a bit of shading to the base of the flowers, with my pencils and popped them up, just slightly.

Check out all of Stacey Yacula's NEW summer series, called 'A Sweet Summer', over at Purple Onion Designs.  I can't wait to see what else the design team has come up with!!

Next up, a sure symbol of summer. See ya soon!!
