Owl Hugs and Kisses

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. What is that about Sunday being a day of rest??? I took advantage of that today. 

After church this morning and then lunch, I took a nap. Since napping is not part of a normal routine for me, I don't do well with it. I am not one of those power mappers like my husband. I fall asleep and then stay asleep. I curled up with a comforter around 2:00 and next thing I know it's 6:00. 

I guess it didn't help that I was up until 2:00 am last night and then back up at 7:00 am. So now I am all rested up and hoping that I can go to sleep tonight at a normal hour. 'Cause Monday is my day with my trainer at the gym. I like to be well rested since she works me so hard. 

Now onto my card for today. I am onto Valentine cards right now. I send a lot of them so I make a lot of them. This is my card for Wendy's F4A203 challenge to "pay it forward". She wants us to make a card that we will actually send out. 

I make 4 or 5 valentine cards for my 3 year old granddaughter, Phoenix Daisy, and start mailing them in January. So this is the first. She already loves getting mail from me.

My card idea came from this one by mrsscrapper. I thought her's was so cute and changed it a little by adding punched hearts and a mini tag.

My card is using designer paper from the Stampin-Up "more amore" collection. The heart is from the same collection.
Owls are punched with the owl builder punch.

My tag is stamped with a sentiment from the Stampin-Up "all year cheer" set.

That's my card for today. It's time to watch Downton Abbey. I joined the fan list this year because so many of my stamping friends were talking about it. I want to watch the other 3 seasons so I can get a history of the characters. So until next time........God bless.

  1. What a cute owl card Mary and how fun to send a bunch of Valentine's to Phoenix Daisy! Good for you for going to the gym too!!

  2. That's a darling owl "couple". Very sweet Valentine's card. OMGosh, you sure took a LONG and much-needed nap. Have a great week.

  3. This is just darling for your granddaughter. Love the paper and the owls on the branch are just the cutest.

    I would be in big trouble if I napped for 4 hrs. I would never go to sleep that night. I don't sleep much as is.

  4. That is an adorable card! I love how their little eyes look at each other. So sweet! I'm not a napper either. I never feel right after waking from a nap.
