Owl Punch Play date card by Stampin Up and me

In about 9 hours I am flying out to Winnipeg from Calgary. For 4 days I will be able to visit, listen, laugh, walk and eat (Greek, Sushi, Ethiopian, yip the days and evenings are allready all planned :) with my dear friends out there who I missed so much. Like I said, many of them had babies of their own, but a couple of them were at that time in the process of adopting little ones in their families. Some are still in the process and some have welcomed those precious children into their families. I made this card and some like this one for them. Love what the little sentiment says. 'Adoption is when a child grew in it's mommy's heard instead of her tummy'.
I love that stampin Up thought of these woman and these families who adopted a little one. They so deserve a stamp set like this. And this one is right on!
Yesterday my dear friend Robyn came by with her 2 kiddos' and we had our crafting bee morning together. What a great time. She made one beautiful card. I will not post it .. because I am not sure if she send it to her friend yet.. Just in case that sweet lady takes a peek at my blog :) You know, Robyn has the patience and the talent to bring colors together and to finish everything of so nicely.. She has style! And is so sweet and encouraging to be around.
Love her!
Anyway, for todays PPA # 59 Challenge I used the New Play Date Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up. It has all the collors that this beautiful challenge asked for. Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and So Safron. I love all the flowers in this paper. To bad there are only 2 sheets of this pattern in the package.. Although the other patterns are so cute as well. And then the little owl.. isn't he/she just priceless.
I punched it out 4 times from different card stock and puzzled it together.
I have to pack and prep this house for me being away for 4 days.. Weird.. no children with me for 4 whole days and nights. I will sleep so so well.. No interruptions.. hmmmm.. Love it!
Have a great day you all! A big hug, Pauline

  4. That owl is so stylish in the DSP. The sentiment is so great, as I have a friend in the adoption process. Thanks so much for playing with us @ PPA!!

  5. Have a great trip Pauline! Love the sentiment for the card too. Often adoptive parents miss out on the congratulations of a "birth" which is not the case here! Love it :)
