Big News – For the Blog Hop


Welcome to the March Pals Blog Hop where we are celebrating spring. This month we are featuring spring related projects for Mother’s Day, Easter or any other occasion that celebrates winter coming to an end.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Benjaman Turner at He Stamps on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

Well it’s big news in the Owlery.  My husband’s daughter is going to have a baby in September.  My daughter has two children – Avery is the namesake for this blog – but Amanda is the first of my husband’s children to have a baby.   I figured the Pals Blog Hop would be a great venue for sharing the card I made for Amanda and Eric.

Stampin Up Big News Cheerful Critters

I used the sentiment from Big New stamped on a piece of retired DSP stamped with Early Espresso.  I also used the darling little chick from Cheerful Critters, snipped out, and layered over the top of Lullaby DSP from the annual catalog.

To top it off I tied a piece of Hello Honey Thick Bakers Twine – free with a $50 purchase when you select the In Color Accessory Pack during Sale-A-Bration this month.  The bow added the needed touch of softness.  All of this on a Coastal Cabana card base. Stampin Up Big News Cheerful Critters

Don’t forget the inside.  I re-stamped the chick with Early Espresso in the bottom corner for a whimsical touch.
