Old As You Feel

A good friend of my family - my parents' age, one year lamented that she was going to be SO OLD on her next birthday, and she was sad. I remember telling her she was the youngest person that I knew, based mostly on how active she was. I think that's true with a lot of people. Look at me: I don't act my age ... not even close. Oh, wait, that's something entirely different; never mind.

So, when I saw this stamp from Creative Vision (can't remember where I got it - maybe my LSS?), I snagged it:

HA! MINE! I paired it with one of my new Impression Obsession Whoot images and made this:

Also, please excuse the blurriness (more so than usual). I need new reading glasses because I'm squinting a lot at work, and it makes my eyes tired. I plan to get new specs in a few weeks.

So, the branch was cut from a miscellaneous piece of Core'dinations textured card stock, and after I trimmed it a bit and stuck it down, I sponged Hero Arts Soft Sky ink all over the background. The owl was stamped on a scrap, colored and cut out, then popped up with dimensional adhesive. I went over the black part of the eyes with my Sakura Glaze pen - they are very shiny.

That's it. I added a ton of clouds, layered that onto a 1/4 sheet of light blue, put it on a white base and called it done.

In other news, I have a lot of stuff. I've been packing one or two boxes per night, and man, a LOT of stuff. And I haven't really started in the craft room yet. I think I'm unconsciously avoiding that. I want to wait until the last minute to pack that room since, well - STAMPING! It's my therapy. I might have to do the kitchen next. See? SEE?!?! I'd rather pack the kitchen and eat off paper plates than even think about packing the craft room. Sigh.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is super cute. "Wow that must suck for you" makes me guffaw.

  2. That's awesome! You find the best stamps. I love that little owl.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
