My friend Jo makes these adorable stuffed animals and today Simon gave one to a friend of his from school. Lexy's owl was actually blue (that's her favourite colour). Jo is terrific, she made one in blue with only 2 days notice. Unfortunately I didn't have time to take a photo of it but I do have a silver one I photographed previously.
I made a birthday card for Lexy to match using a very old Sizzix Original Owl die. I coated his wings and feet in Glossy Accents and sprinkled them with glitter. His eyes and beak were also "Glossily Accented". I sat him on a branch cut with the Spellbinders Cherry Blossoms set, and double mounted that using the WMS Stitched Rectangles and WMS Scalloped Stitched Rectangles. I cut Lexy's name using the WPlus9 Folk Art Alphabet and popped the letters up on small acetate "springs" and made a little computer generated sign for the owl to hold - Uhu is a German word for owl.
This week's Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is Die Crazy, so I'm entering over there.
