Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge - Give a Hoot!

Happy Earth Day my wonderful bloggie friends! I hope you have something fun planned for the day! I am looking forward to teaching the little monkey's about Earth Day today. I really think my son is starting to getting it. We had the privilege of seeing the Dr. Seuss movie The Lorax while it was out in theaters and I was impressed with the knowledge my son gained from it. He was so complete in telling my husband all about the movie. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to talking with him and my daughter more about it today! Although I should do it more often. The Earth deserves more then just one day of celebration!

Today is Sunday which means it is time for another Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky and this weeks theme is "Give a Hoot". I was excited to do this challenge! I found the perfect little owl for it the other day at WalMart. I happened to look down and notice all of these cute little wood creatures on clearance for 25 cents! I was pumped. So of course I picked a few up. I can not tell you all of the creatures because they may end up on some up coming projects for your viewing pleasure ;)
Alright so here is my card....

Like I said the owl came from WalMart. He was way too cute to pass up... plus I knew this challenge was coming! The world was printed off of my computer. I used all scraps for paper in order to not be wasteful and make sure I was recycling it! The ribbon is also been recycled from an old card I got from a friend!  For the sentiment I used three different K. Andrew Design stamp sets!
I used Crafty Friends to create the "Friends of a Feather together" and stars
I used All about Animals stamp set to create the "up" used sss.up? and just cleaned off the sss... and ?

And on the Of Mice &  Lil Men stamp set I used from Sky's the Limit I got the word the and from What a Wonderful World I used the word World :)

See how versatile the stamps are! I LOVE THAT about them! Makes it so easy to come up with the perfect sentiment for any project! Don't forget (and I am sure this is ending within the next couple days, so ACT FAST) if you would like to purchase a K. Andrew Design stamp set you can use the promo code LETSHAVEFUN and it will take 20% off your stamp order! NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY! Be sure to check out the Owly Hoo Stamp Sets! They would be a great Earth Day purchase! They are so cute! I am sure you will love them too! 
Also if you did not have the chance be sure to check out this months blog hop at Getting Cricky. The Design Team had a lot of fun showing off our style! I am giving away a stamp set for some blog candy! You have until Wednesday to enter!!
