This card was inspired by one that is found on the workshop invitation postcards and is on page 140 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog as well. I just love all of the ideas and inspiration that can be had from things as little as the postcards, the samples found online on the demonstrator websites, those in the mini catalogs and of course those in the Idea Book & Catalog. I challenge you to use them for inspiration the next time you get stumped, and I promise that you won't be stumped for long!

Although I work on an Indian reservation and I brought some cute owl stuff to work, and my Native co-workers were all weird about it. I asked someone and they said that seeing an owl means is a sign of doom and death.... so I guess not so cute to them, lol!
