Telling a Story

Off-hand, I can't remember exactly where this sketch comes from, though it's probably a Papercrafts magazine sketch. When I randomly pulled this Hero Arts stamp set out of its drawer to play with it, I thought of this sentiment from Friend's 'Til the End (Papertrey Ink) and realized it would work perfectly with this sketch.

Those two little owls want to be together for a good chat on the stump, but they have to stay alone in their own squares. Poor little owls! I'm sending this to a friend I haven't seen since May 2000.

I just love a card that can tell a little story.

Update on Comments....

I've commented on all the OLW66 cards. If you don't have a comment on your blog post, I tried and couldn't do it. There's apparently a cookie problem with embedded comment forms.

I've changed my comment form on Simplicity to be a pop-up. These annoy me, but they are not prone to the cookie problem. If anyone is still having trouble commenting, please send me an email and let me know. Thanks so much!

Also, the OLW66 cards are amazing. Y'all did a great job honoring Janelle!


  1. I hope those owls get together soon! What a sweet card.

  2. What a fun card!! I just love the owls and your colors!! Beautiful!!

  3. Sweet card! Want to know why I like the pop up comment box better than the embedded one? Because I can scroll around in the blog post so that the picture that I'm commenting on is still in view while I comment!

  4. I got my comment!
    I love the card, always liked squares

  5. what a fun a card loved how it has a story to tell so beautiful!!

  6. Sweet owls - lovely story. This is new to me . . . telling a story on a card. Have tried that on my scrap pages. Got me thinking . . . .

  7. Hi Susan! All of your cards warm my heart/ make me smile/ ispire me. Thanks so much for your nice comment on my OLW66 card, and, by the way, great challenges!

  8. Susan ~ What a GREAT little card! It is totally perfect for me to send to my best friend who lives far away now and who also loves owls. And guess what ~ I already have those stamps. Does life get any sweeter?
    I also want to say I appreciate the new popup comment window - I used to have to hit enter 5 or 6 times before it would take. This is so much easier to comment with...
    Thank you, Lura
