I've used another never-been-used stamp and colored this funny ole owl. Strangely, I actually thought it was a penguin. Ha! I have a dear friend who absolutely is crazy about penguins, so perhaps that's why I thought it was a penguin (and bought it five years ago). I found some sweet DP to use that was my color palette and colored it - and then was not very creative with the layout. But I did get creative with the sentiment and found a cute font. It works, right? So as the deadline approached, I finally ended up framing it with the DP and matting it in white. I adhered it to some textured Bazzill cardstock that always seems to add some character. This will go to a friend of ours who will get a kick out of it. He thinks he is pretty wise (and has a great sense of humor)!
I hope you get inspired to join us as we make our 2018 Christmas cards throughout the year! Stacy (Twinshappy) has shared some great challenges so far this year, and I hope you'll join in! More cards are appearing each month, and we are all working hard to make more Christmas cards this year! Yay!
I am also entering this for Robin's Free For All challenge today, "Baby, It's Cold Outside." This is for a "cold" winter's night at Christmas time with this Christmas Owl excited about his tree!
Thanks for taking a closer look at my card! Wishing you all a wonderful week and a happy June! Hugs, all!

Sweet Cheryl, I love your Christmas owl image that is colored beautifully! The sentiment is fantastic and perfect for the card. The background patterned paper is beautiful with perfect colors for the owl! Great artwork, sis! xoxo

Hoo-hoo-hoo! This is totally adorable. I definitely see how this could be coloured up as a penguin! Totally fun card. I've not had time in the Rubber Room for the last week or two. Lots of things on my calendar - hope to get creating again soon. Hugs to you!

As always, I can marvel at your coloring for hours, Cheryl. Your owl with the perfectly placed highlights on his hat and body looks very 3d and soft. I want to just tickle his tummy. What an adorable image you used to make a terrific holiday card...i need to check out that Christmas card challenge since I never get many made.
