Shhhhh! Big Owl Contraband!

Happy Friday night! Yay! It's the weekend! And a 3-day weekend to boot! Lots of time for stamping...and I received my Love You Much Bundle today, yippee skippee! Hopefully I'll have some things to share with that soon! *wink*

For now, though, a little contraband! I found this big owl stamp from Hero Arts while I was visiting Archiver's in Kansas City over Christmas vacation. That store is tooooo good! They have a fantastic stamp selection too. Anyway, he had been sitting on my desk staring at me for weeks now, so I finally broke him in last night.

I made 3 simple...and identical (which is RARE for me) last night to give to the teachers (along with some donuts!) at our 3 campuses from our RtI team (my job) to thank them for their patience the past two weeks while we pulled out their students for their mid-year fluency tests. I toyed with adding more and doing more to the card, but I knew it would have a short life and meet a tragic fate, so I restrained myself! lol!

Okay, I stumbled on this video with Beyonce and Justin Timberlake from Saturday Night Live and I CAN'T stop watching it! I love the song too and want to download it for my ringtone, but I'm just not sure it's appropriate for me! You can see the whole sketch here.

Have a good night and thanks for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Stamps: "you're the best" from A Little Birdie Told Me; "Big Owl" from Hero Arts.
Cardstock: Whisper White, Baja Breeze.
Ink: Staz-On Brown.
Accessories: vintage button, mini glue dot.

I live in KC and Archiver's is great! I try to avoid the area as much as possible so I am not tempted inside-either that or leave all debit cards, checks and money at home lol!

You were so brave with this card. I don't know if I could have stopped here. It looks fabulous. Download the ring tone. I just downloaded a fun, inappropriate song for my phone.

Ooooh, you stopped at Archivers - MY Archivers :)! LOVE that place! Hubby refused to take me there over the weekend. He took me everywhere else but. He didn't want to sit around for two hours while I shop. I guess I can't really blame him :)

Love that huge owl. Too too cute!!!

ha! cute big owl. I saw that skit on SNL (I DVR it every week) and I must have rewound it SO many times because I kept watching what unique thing each guy did in it, I laughed SO hard!! you've got to go to and search for all Justin Timberlake's SNL sketches - Bleep in a Box & egg costume guy skits! HILARIOUS!
