Always Wear Your Invisible Crown!

We probably all have our own way of interpreting what “always wear your invisible crown” means. To me, it means that we can’t all wear sashes & crowns and be queens or princesses, but we can act like them and wear invisible crowns!  We can show it by maintaining self-confidence, by being aware of our own self-worth without flaunting it, and by being humble. Maybe it means that we should imagine our worth through different eyes so we can have a confidence that we have never experienced before. Whatever this quote means, I love the way it sounds and the way it makes me feel!  Hold your head high and have a glorious day!

Whooray!

“Mr. Who” is the name of this cute little owl stamp and I just love him. I have quite a few cute (and cheesy) sentiments that I could have used with this image on a card, like “Owl always love you” or “Whoo-la-la” but I decided to make something other than a card. I stamped Mr. Who with brown ink and colored in using layers of a pink Copic marker so the image would coordinate with the small pink bag. The same brown ink was used to stamp the branch. To decorate the paper bag, I started by attaching a piece of triangle-shaped burlap, using lagoon colored bakers twine to attach. Using large and small scalloped circle punches, I punched out background paper to layer with. I used foam tape to attach the scalloped circles and tree branch with, just to add dimension.  For embellishments,  I used burlap flowers from Hobby Lobby and Prima paper flowers from my stash.  Of course I added a little bit of bling to the flowers, since it’s a challenge for me to just leave things like that as they are.  Hope you have a hoot of a day!
