Now it's getting obsessive!

OK, you had to be expecting it.

It was inevitable, really, let's face it.

I'm sure it will come as no surprise to many of you.

After all, what else could possibly happen, based on past performance?

Yes, you're right. I've gone and done it.

Again.

Made another owl.

Not just any old owl. Ohhhhh no.

An Easter owl.

Having trouble thinking how owls and Easter can match up? Well, you see, here's how it happened ...

... so, I was in the shops and saw those cute little hairbands that always pop up around Easter. You know the ones, they are white and fluffy and have cute bunny ears attached. And little kids wear them and look adorable. Well, my girls did anyways ... looked adorable in them, that is. I'm sure yours do/did too!

So then I got to thinking ... would a little owl wear bunny ears too? And go around looking for eggs hidden in the garden? Of course they would! No owl parent would deprive their child of that kind of fun, now would they? Which raises the side issue of whether or not chocolate is good for owls .... but I digress!

And so my Easter owl was created, dressed in a bunny ear headband and bunny costume and carrying a basket filled with eggs found in the grass.

Ta da!


Damn stinkin' cute is what it is! (YILM!)

Punches used:
  • bunny ears - 5 petal flower
  • headband - 1" circle, 1 1/4" circle
  • bunny tummy - small oval
  • owl wings - scallop oval
  • basket - owl
  • basket handle - small oval, large oval
  • eggs - balloon (non SU)
  • grass - grass (Martha Stewart)
  • branches - 2 step bird
Hope it brings a smile to your dial. Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Oh Kerry! That is so gorgeous! I was only thinking yesterday that you hadn't posted an owl in a while! You are so clever. I may just have to case this one. I'm sure I won't be the only one either! Great work.

Aww he's so cute & that's not because I've never met an owl I didn't like. I think there will be lots of Easter owls around this Easter, including at my place if that's ok. Thanks so much for sharing your owl inspiration. Inky wishes, Di
