A Hoot of an Experiment

Hello friends! 
The new Spring & Summer 2014 Idea Book is out and we’re here to showcase the new product in a blog hop today.  You’ll get to hop through blogs and return to this one to see various projects created with the brand new product.  If you’ve already been hopping, you’ve just come from {Nikka’s blog}. 

Laughing Lola and Owls CTMH stamp set by Lalia Harris
My card features Lollydoodle papers, Owls stamp set, Flamingo dots and Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon.  These are just a few of my very favorite things from this Idea Book.
I also colored my owl with a variety of our CTMH Alcohol markers.  The body is whisper grey, the yellow is light honey.  The beak and feet are Light Honey + Sorbet which makes a good replacement for Sunset.  The belly is a variety of colors Sweet Leaf, Sky, Cotton Candy, and Sorbet. 
I then decided to experiment.  Would googley eyes look good on my owl?  You tell me.  Smile
If you want to bypass my experiment and hop on over to {Jody’s blog} feel free to.  Click the blog hop logo to find the entire list of hoppers.

These first ones are the classic eyes.  I know this picture doesn’t do justice because I’ve just given my sweet owl cataracts.

Last but not least are these great eyes from Hobby Lobby.  I think they’re West Trim brand.

  1. Super cute card and I love those eyes with the lashes!

  2. Super cute card! Love how you used the green ribbon. I think I like the yellow googly eyes because they match the yellow face behind them.

  3. I love the owls with the googly eyes - especially the ones with the lashes

  4. lovely cards, my favourite - the green googley eyes!

  5. Ok - my favorite eyes are the ones with the lashes but they are all stinkin' cute!

  6. Hoot, hoot be watching you. LOL thanks for the great idea.

  7. What an adorable little owl. Your coloring is very nice. My favorite is without any of the dimensional eyes.

  8. hilarious! The eyelashed one got me to smile really big!

  9. The EYES have it (pun intended!). They are all too too cute!
