Animals 05 - Owl

I have been saving this image for who knows how long waiting for inspiration to kick me on the backside. It was coloured to be ready and some time ago I thought I've lost this! This morning I just knew what I wanted to make and here it is.

Owl is a beautiful creature, isn't it?

Poem on the back begins with
Grow Old With Me. (i.e. old-owl(d) of course I think it was good)

The idea of this came from a blogger, who created something similar using coasters, I had some real thick strong kraft and cardstock.

  1. I really love this idea, Annemaritta! It came out really nice! So do they sell calendars like that, without "lids"? I'd like to make one sometime, its a great gift idea too.
