* Path of Positivity #76: Owl be Here


Happy Monday!

I am delighted to announce that I have joined The Path of Positivity Design Team!  I came across this wonderful challenge blog a few months ago and really love the ethos of creating a nurturing, positive path for crafting buddies.

The motto for The Path of Positivity Challenge blog is:

A unique challenge blog designed to inspire, nurture and provide support for the soul by creating a positive path to follow, one project or post at a time!

So, ALL entries must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. 

This month the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Character Traits.
We are all made up different qualities that come together to make up our overall character. What are your qualities or character traits?

Prizes this month include:
  • $12 gift certificate from Bugaboo Stamps, our guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants. 
  • ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
So what about my character traits?  
I would say that I am a kind, patient and supportive person who is dependable, compassionate, optimistic, and a good, reliable friend.  This is the reason the Path of Positivity Challenge blog appealed to me so much. I just love the idea of creating a caring, inspiring and supportive network for fellow crafters!
Just in case you're thinking I'm an angel :), I do have some negative traits as well!  I’m indecisive. I am the world’s best procrastinator (especially where non crafty paperwork is involved). I can be gullible. And ... I’m definitely finicky! 

I was lucky to receive an image from our guest sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps and here is the card I created:

The Cute Owl digi stamp was coloured with Copics and die cut with a scalloped square die. The die was left in place and the background was inked with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide. I added some Pearl Drops to the flower centres. I matted the image onto die cut kraft card. For the background, I used papers from Tim Holtz's 'Wall Flower' paper stash pad, inked the edges in Vintage Photo and matted onto kraft card. I printed out the sentiment and cut it into strips. I made a daisy to match those in the image using a Tattered Lace Blossom's die. It was secured with a pearl brad which doubles up at the flower centre.

For the inside of the card, I printed out the text 'sending you' and then the pictorial sentiment #044 'Hugs' from Scribbles Designs.

Many thanks to Bugaboo Stamps, this month's guest sponsor,

and to Scribbles Designs as the ongoing sponsor of the challenge

We would love to see your creations! 
Just make sure that your entry is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way!
