It's another challenge at DYSU today! I hope you had fun playing along with us last week.

Yep - have lots of family & friends whose birthday keep my little "sweat shop" year around busy.

These cute owls are paper pieced and popped onto some cork. I love how they are looking at each other... And I love that I was able to use up some of my (much hoarded) My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart pattern paper. The cork was an amazing find by my crafty friends Elke at Michaels. The cork comes in a light, a dark, and one with script on it. The best part is that you can run this through a punch or die cut, pull the adhesive off, and stick it down. Easy peasy!
The background is sponged with Broken China. I free-hand cut some curves and used them as a mask to get a cloud sky together. Hope it tickles...Make sure to check out the other DYSU girls' creation and leave them some love. They really poured out their hearts on this project this week!
On a last note, if you're a regular reader, don't forget to answer the survey in the top right panel. A new QuAC poll is up :)
