March Madness continued....

I had some serious studio time this weekend to try and knock out my crafting to-do list -  (I have 3 non-girly, card-giving events at the beginning of March).  The first was a birthday card for my father (which, he absolutely positively LOVED).  The next card on the agenda was a birthday card for my Nephew.

Said card was a double whammy for me, because not only is he a boy (a challenge in and of itself), but he's also 11 years old.  If there's one thing my crafting stash has a hard time supporting, its kid-friendly boy cards >.<

So I called in the troops!  I got together with some of my gal pals, and we pooled supplies to create... (dramatic pause)

This card was a team effort if ever there was one!  The owl is Stampin Up's super cute Two-Step Owl Punch punched from Soft Suede Cardstock.  His little cupcake-toting wings were first punched using the Scallop Oval punch, and then punched again from the 1 3/4" x 7/8" oval punch.  The cherry is punched with the Build-a-Cupcake XL punch , and the Sentiment is from A Word for You.

The most important piece of this card is the wonderful, awesome ladies who pooled their supplies together to help a sister out =)  My upline, Kerry, provided refreshments, crafting space, the sentiment stamp and ink, Wendy contributed the owl punch and cupcake punch, Gayle provided girl scout cookies (Nom nom!), and Eileen provided entertainment and inspiration to get the job done!

And that cupcake stamp, you ask?  Well, that was also courtesy of Wendy, but it's from a retired SU set that I didn't catch the name of >.< anyone have any ideas?
