Owl Post it Note Holder

Hi there.

Today I have a cute birthday card and a matching acrylic post it note holder. I first saw these cute post it note holders here over at Heidi's blog.

These are for a dear friend of mine, whose birthday I missed! I had it in my phone, but it fell on a busy work day and I forgot! So I made her a few gifts to hopefully make up for it! I will be back later in the week with the other gift.

I had given both of her girls a girly owl card for their birthday, so I thought I would continue the theme. I started with a white card and used the beautiful Lap of Luxury DSP. The pattern on the DSP I used is so beautiful, that I didn't want to cover it all up and detract from it, so I used a smallish panel to sit my girly owl on. I dressed my owl up using another sheet from the same DSP pack, adding a ruffle skirt, bow and a bling necklace.

I finished the card off with some white taffeta ribbon , a rose, some trinket pins and a happy birthday banner.

Next I moved onto the acrylic post it note holder. I kept the them going, using the same DSP and owl to dress it up.

This would be great to leave by the phone or on your desk to jot down messages. I might make one for myself. I am always rummaging through my drawer looking for my post it notes!

I used some rub ons to make the words notes on the acrylic frame.

I added some grossgrain ribbon, a bow, a rose to match the card (don't you love that glitter!?) and a devine piece of bling at the top.

I think together this makes a lovely gift.

I also had a pen with a matching DSP insert, but hadn't completed it when I took the photos.
I am going to put this card into the I {HEART} Ribbon Challenge 7 over at Deesigns by Nina Dee.

I was very honoured yesterday to see that the uber talented Monika Davis aka M.A.D Stamper had given ME a blog award! I am so very honoured as I am a HUGE fan of her work! Thanks so much Monika!

This is the 'A Thing of Beauty Award'. I am to share 5 things about myself and pass it on to 5 people...I think??

So here goes:

1. I am a bit of a coffee addict. Especially on work days! It has gotten to the point that I stop on the way to work for a coffee each Tuesday and Wednesday morning!

2. Not only am I a coffee addict, I have become a bit of a coffee snob! I can't stand instant coffee anymore, I do drink it at work to keep me going though.....oh and if I am at your house and that is all you have, I will sometimes drink it then as well. ;)

3. I started out scrapbooking, which has now fallen by the wayside, and I have become addicted to cardmaking. I must get back and do some scrapping!

4. This year at school, I am teaching dance, along with the lovely Mrs P. I am not on a class.

5. I have an interest in photography. I have never really done much about it, although I did take photos at a wedding once. I have a book on photography that I never finished reading and my lovely hubby and family gave me a digital SLR for my birthday, but I only ever use it on auto! Although I do love it. It takes great pics, much better than my little pocket sized camera! I even have a zoom lens. I must get onto that....

I am going to pass this onto the 5 blogs that I have found recently and love!

1. Mindy at Bada Bing Papercrafting.

2. Jeni at Becoming Martha. Not strictly a papercrafting website, but boy is this girl clever! Do pop over and have a look.

3. Jen at I Create.

4. Leanne at WEEinklings. Doesn't this girl have some talent...and the cutest little granddaughter?!

5. Maureen at Mamma Mo Stamps. Another girl with some serious talent! I love everything she does!
