Lucky Owl

The Front Porch Kits' latest kit contained an 8x8 burlap canvas.  After thinking about it for quite a few days, I decided that I will try something different for me and make a wall hanging.  There was a journaling tag in kit and I thought that I could use it as the saying of some cute critter.  I went the simple route and came up with this lucky owl.
I put to use many of the elements included in the kit: handmade buttons, yarn to thread through the button holes, silk leaves, two different ribbons and this extremely stiff wired stem I used here as a border.  I think I've mentioned how jam packed this kit is with so many fun elements!
Here's one more look at the journaling tag that I trimmed to use on the canvas and the cute owl I cut with Cricut Lite Hoot N Holler. Lite cartridges are by far my favorite ones because each image requires a maximum of four cuts to piece together. I love simplicity!
Thank you for visiting! Until next time, keep on creating!
