Look “hoo’s” playing with colors

Soooo I was working on class prep. all day long… typing instructions, printing… cutting CS, sorting… you get the idea… and I needed a FUN break.

That’s when I decided to follow a color challenge:

curtain call 44

And because I had just gotten this new punch of mine in with the class supplies… I didn’t have to reach very far. It was a no brainer that I had to use him right away. Too cute to be put in a basket with the other punches.

So here is my take on the color challenge:

Oh I just like everything about this card (if I can say so myself)… I may not be able to give it away, or at least not for a WHILE! It makes me smile!  I love playing with new toys :-)

I think don’t have to tell you what I’ve used, it’s so simple and easy to identify. But if you need help, please let me know!

I do want to point out something though that I haven’t seen online anywhere yet… The owl punch has a little heart shape on it. And all the times I’ve seen it use it was, well… as a heart… But I use it as a beak! I place it right underneath the eyes… maybe it’s just me, but I think it works perfect that way (and thought it was meant for that)!

As this Sunday comes to an end, try to get some rest in for next week…
