Challenge #114. Owl always love you.

Electra here -  Are you exhausted from all that Dancing With The Poobahs?  I know I am.
This week, we'll be a little more sedate and visit the world of OWLS.
For some reason Autumn always makes me think of owls, I don't know why.
But thinking of Owls, I made a few ATC's:

Why the "Always Love You" part?  I have no idea.  I think the reason is when I see the leaves starting to change colour, I think of school buses, and I think of when my girl was little and went to elementary school and I think of how adorable she was and I think of how much I love her....
And no, I don't have ADHD.

So Whoo do you love in your Owl world?
Let's see what all the other wonderful poobahs have come up with for this challenge.

Rosemary  - here and I love the idea of an Owl challenge - WHO wouldn't?  (heh heh, sorry, couldn't resist).  There's all sorts of owl embellishments, die cuts, stickers, etc.  I decided I was going to do something with floss and fabric...soooo.....

I found this adorable spooky owl pattern from The Prairie Schooler and easy peasy - a cross-stitch ornament perfect for decorating a doorknob, wreath, or bare tree branch (oooh, the possibilities).  Wonderfully fun to do and I hope you enjoy looking at it!


 Jana here -  Owls. Are you kidding me?!?!?! I LOVE owls. I always have. I always will. My oldest is contemplating colleges. She's a junior and is starting to put serious thought into what she wants to be and where she'll go to learn about it. I really want her to major in something practical. But not matter what she chooses, OWL ALWAYS LOVE HER. So I made a little set of ATC's titled:


Kristen here -  I used some Quickutz owls for this project and some really fun paper that I just got at the local craft store with the owls on it!  It is called You're a Hoot from the finally fall collection from Bella BLVD.  I love owls... I used to have one that landed on the roof above my bedroom window and talk until I fell asleep.  Possibly he talked after, but how would I know that?  Have a great week!

Deena here - I am not a bird lover at fact they kind of creep me out...they fly above you threatening poop so you have to duck and cover (pardon the pun), but I bought this owl punch on a whim and decided I had better use it at least a couple of times to get my money's hubby got a kick out of the lets' flock together phrase...typical here is my attempt at owl love this week:

You have until the end of Saturday 8 October to join in with your fabulous creation celebrating owls. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.
