Cuttlebug Be Inspired 23 - Punches and Inspirational Blog TOOT to share

Wow, another week has gone by and I even went to Canada this week, and yes, they let me come back, too...hehehe. Barely made it back just in time to post my card for this week's Cuttlebug Challenge. The challenge was to use punches, but not the normal way we would use them. What a great challenge this is, specially now that punches are kind of back. By the way I am still waiting for eyelets to come back, so I can use the hundreds I have crying in containers...hehehe.....anyone with some earth shattering ideas??? Anyway, just a couple of weeks ago, I saw the cutest owl made with punches, and when I saw this challenge, I decided I won't be reinventing the wheel, so I made the same owl, which was made by Michelle P. and she even posted the tutorial on her blog, so make sure you check it out, if you would like to recreate this little guy. By the way Michelle, thank you so much for the inspiration!!! Way cute!!! Well, check out this sweet card of mine. (for details, please click on the picture)

And here is the close up.

Supplies used to make this card:
Cuttlebug folders: Forest Branches and Spots and Dots
Cardstock: Stampin Up and The Paper Company
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey
Stamps: Unity Stamp (branch) and EK Success (sentiment)
Ink: Stazon, Stampin UP and Colorbox
Punches: Marvy, Stampin Up, EK success
Ribbon: Michael's
Decorative Scissors: Fiskars

Plastic moving eyes from Ching's stash (thanks Ching!)

OK, now about my TOOT....I was so excited when I found out my card will be featured on the Inspirational blog, so now I get to display their blinkie and believe I am so proud of this blinkie. All the designers, who are featured on this blog are just so talented, and I am totally honored to be among them! And the card that was featured was non other then my watercolor card using Cuttlebug, so I was extremely happy about that. If you don't remember that card of mine, here is the link to it, and of course you can check it out on Inspirational as well. How cool is that!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my new card and come see what the other designers came up with using punches and participate in our challenge at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog! And as always, if you participate, your card will be featured on our blog. Isn't that cool? So, I hope to see what you will create!

Have a fabulous day!
