Look Whoooos Hinged!

I think owls are so cute, I for one love it when icons from my childhood come back into style.This adorable owl is from the so tweet chipboard available from stampin' Up! This is a hinge card and instructions for this type of card can be found at stamping school or at split coast stampers. This is a square card, but many shapes can be used. I covered the owl with good morning sunshine designer series paper from Stampin' Up! I colored his feet and beak with markers, and attached him to nestabilities label 3 in chocolate chip and white. I used choc buttons and half back pearls for his eyes, and my favorite accessory of the moment a corduroy brad.

The leaf is a sizzix die in old olive and sponged, the scallop border is summer sun, and punched with the SU border punch.
I'm packing for my flight to New York tomorrow, every year We spend the summer there. I'm trying to decide what to ship to myself and what I can "live without" but if you are like me you cant live without any tools, stamps, inks and papers!!
