This blue owl is where my inspiration came from. I showed Ian my coloured owl and he said you don't really get blue owls. I said, 'Hello, this is a cartoon character owl, he can be ANY colour I choose' lol. He just said, 's'pose'!! I think this blue owl with 'believe' on looks fab! I was going to stamp the word believe onto another owl, but I wanted to cheer myself up with a chocolate chip cookie card because it's been one of THOSE kind of weeks!
My favourite piece in the whole shop is this! I just love EVERYTHING about it, the colours, the wording, the little symbols and shapes, FAB-U-LOUS. The wording says, 'Mom, you held my hand for a while you hold my heart forever'. I've heard it so many times but it always makes me smile. Must leave a note out for Tink!
The winner will get this handmade ceramic owl desk buddy -INSPIRE. How cute would he look sitting on your card making table?!
Our sponsor is Your Next Stamp. Check out this stamp of their new release. The winner will get a $10 gift voucher to spend.
My Marmie would love this because she is Irish. She was always telling me about her Irish dancing when she was younger. She used to sing me a funny little song as she did it too! In fact she is visiting with us at the moment and I just showed it to her and she said, 'you could make that for.. ' (One of our relatives..I won't tell you who just in case they are reading my blog) lol. I knew she'd love it!
So pop on over to check out what the rest of the DT made and then check our main blog for any bits of information that I may have missed!

I'm hoping to get some time to finish off some bits and pieces in my studio tomorrow. I do find at weekends though I want to make cards, but my mojo just disappears. Does that ever happen to you? I then have to walk away and come back when it comes back lol.m Hopefully it will be in full flow tomorrow!
