This weekend we are celebrating the special men in our lives AND I am also thinking about the men who have been in our physical life but now we hold very dear in our hearts.  This card I designed for my wonderful husband (shhhhhh! .... he will get it on Sunday).  I also created it for my ladies in card class a week ago so they could give it to their special guy.

Melissa and Gayla of TWO PAPER DIVAS designed these darling Owls called "Hooters" and very appropriately named.  I first embossed the cream colored card stock with this fun embossing folder (name ?); stamped the Hooters with Memento Black Ink; colored the various places with my copics; and using pieces of the fun papers from Amy Tangerine "Plus One" paper pack, I stamped and cut out and then paper pieced the owl clothing.  This paper pack is full of pretty sweet papers.  There are 36 different designs but there are only one sheet of each.  So, if I am using any for my card classes .... something like this is perfect for the amount of students I have.  When the card was done, I had to laugh because the Big Eyes were going funny on the "boy".  Roger is having eye issues right now!!  Not funny for him but cute on the little owl!!!  I have always loved these googly eyes.  The ticket is a stamp from TPD..... their grouping of four stamps called "Tickets".  The Sentiment is from the TPD set "Handy Guy".  This set is the perfect set to have in your collection for when you need that special "Male" card we tend to not make enough of in our day-to-day designing.   Finally, I added the twine.

Once inside the card, I added the tool box from the "Handy Guy" set along with the Sentiment from TPD "Birthday Greetings" (see this one can be used for Father's Day).  The Heart is from TPD "Sending Love" set.  I cropped the corners using the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper.  I loved these tools by We R Memory Keepers.   

So as not to overlook the back of the card, I used the Sentiment from TPD's "Sending Love" set.  The Heart here and on the front is also a TPD's stamp. 

You can see more fun samples using this set HERE on Two Paper Divas website or if you'd like to purchase this stamp for only $9.95 go HERE.

Love these GUYS!!!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go TWO PAPER DIVAS!!  See ya next card but I must once again thank Melissa for her assistance in my BLOG!!  Love you my wonderful friend!!!


  1. I think your husband will love it! Fun card and yes, the eyes are perfect! We released the owls with the Halloween/fall stuff but it works for so many other things too - anniversaries and weddings would be fun. I might have to play around with a bride and groom!!

  2. A Wedding would be a cute idea, Gayla. I love OWLS!!! These guys are just way toooooo cute. The card class gals really had a fun time making this card and using all the TPD stamps that I had designed this card with. Just a few more hours and the care will show its face in this household!!! Thanks Gayla!!

    1. THE word in the last sentence was "card"!!

  3. P. S. to all ...... Roger loved his Father's Day Card!!
