...with a little FELT!




And so did THESE guys:

CHALLENGE

WHAT a super challenge! {LUCKILY, I've been hoarding... ur, uh, I

And BUTTONS! And PAPER! And PINS, custom embellished
with CRYSTALS~ Good times: GOOD TIMES, I tell ya!



I was inspired to make this cute lil' owly, by THESE buttons!
{I swear - it feels like I made 100 projects out of this one pack of buttons!}

ELISE! Wow woman - you are on FIRE - your creative felty owl is just SO cute. Wish my mama were still here to enjoy it - owls were her "thing". We actually scared up a nest of owls while out geocaching last weekend - really cool but not nearly as cool as your CUTE CARD!!!!
