I Don't Like Scary Halloween Stuff....

...but I do like the fun and friendly images.  Yup, I'm one of those parents who refuses to buy the Grim Reaper and other gory costumes for my kids.  I figure there's enough horror in the world, we don't need to glorify it.  Just my take on it.
    This here cutie owl card is a project we'll be making at this month's events.  The card design is based on a swap from my wonderful upline Sharon.  She made a card similar to this with the bat punch.  Since I didn't have it, I decided to put the owl on the branch in front of the moon.  There's a bit of sponging on the edges of the ovals for the pumpkin.  "And where did I get that awesome stem for the pumpkin?" you ask.  Well, when I punched the branch out with the 2-Step Bird punch, the wing punched out, also.  So, I snipped half of it off and it became an instant stem!  I really, really love the versatility of the SU! punches.  When I punched the owl out, I didn't want to glue on the tiny dot eyes, so gave the brown a little love with my white gel pen.  Much easier!
Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station!
