Today Sparkle N Sprinkle is releasing a cute little owlette set created by artist Becky Muir. For a chance to win the Owlette stamp set and an embossing powder and a glitter, Sparkle N Sprinkle is kicking things off with a Mystery Designer Party!

On one of the participating blogs below, a Commenter will be selected to receive the prize. No one knows who the Mystery Designer is, so you may wish to visit each Sparkle Team Member's blog to leave a comment. The winner will be announced on September 3 on Facebook, the SNS blog, and on our blogs:


With Special Guest Designers:
Barbara Bruder  (you are here)


These little owls are so cute and they have great personalities!!


Aren't these owls the cutest!!!
I just had to put an owl on a tree branch so that's what inspired my 2nd card.


Please visit the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges blog and check out the September Challenge. The challenge starts at midnight.  There will be 3 winners and the prizes are digital images,and you could be one of the winners.
Since the prizes are digital images that means no waiting for the postman!!!

The tassel really makes the card. What a great idea. I can't decide which card I love more. They are fabulous!

i love this!!!

carrie said...

Cute cards, can't decide which I like best. Really like the bright colors and textures of the first card, but also really like the plaid background and tree limb with moon background on the second. The second card would be a perfect masculine card which is always difficult to come by.

Shari Williams said...

Cute cards, I like the second one best.

Andrea said...

Love the samples you've created with the set! Wonderful!

AuntDi said...

These cards are both so cute. The second one is perfect for a male. The colors are great and I love the tree branch.

1st card: The colors you chose for the card are some of my favorites to put together, pink & yellow rock. I am glad you used all the owls since I love this stamp set so much and am glad you colored them all a different color and used glitter. Adding the string tassel certainly made it a special card, also. 2nd card:Putting the owl on a tree branch with a full moon with glittery blotches on it and using the colors of brown and tan to color it made it seem very realistic. All the colors you used on the layers behind the main elements and around the saying carry a direct theme of autumn, love it!

AdrianneE said...

Especially love the second version; it would work well for a man - always looking for cards appropriate for men.

Pat said...

Love your cards. Being a traditionalist, I especially like the colors and theme of the second card.

Carol Meadows said...

Both cards really came out so nice. I am really leaning on getting this set. Getting hooked on owls!

Janet Mack said...

That little guy on the branch is too cute.

Love both cards. Great idea with the bright colors and twine,but I also love the owl on the branch. Owls are so "now". I cannot wait to start making cards with this set.
