Whoo wants cake?

I have a fondness for cute owl images... I just can't resist them! I love this adorable image by Art Impressions stamps. I saw this cute owl image while visiting my local scrapbook/stamping store in Walnut Grove, MN.  He was fun to color, as I LOVE coloring with my Prisma Color pencils and gamsol. Hope you're having a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by.

So many smiles...

Happy Summer! Been busy gardening and making some new cards. Summer is a crazy time isn't it! I love it! My niece Stacy from Duluth, and her two daughters came for a visit. We set up my living room with craft tables and made cards, and watched movies! We all love making cards and it was so much fun! The cards I am posting are some of the cards I made during their visit.
