DT Post by Gwen - Adorable Owl!

Hi everyone, this is Gwen from This and That by Gwen with a fun little card to share with you today.
Okay don't go into shock, but this card was made completely with my cricut!  I downloaded the new Silhouette V3 and nothing I used my cricut.  I have had a bad week for tech stuff, my computer was in the shop for a week and they wiped it clean everything was backed up but...well let's just say it took Apple 2.5 hours to find some of the stuff and put it back.  So I was unaware of the issues with the new v3 program and put that on.  All my files are gone  trying to remove v3 and get everything back the way it was.  Oh my iPad also quit working the same week.

I love this little owl he is just so sweet looking he came off the Create a critter 2 cartridge and the branch he is sitting on is from Hoot n Holler cartridge.

The sweet sentiment is from the Cute Critters stamp set.  I cut the banner from the Ribbon Banners - Wavy metal dies and trimmed the ends off, it just looked better.   The twine is Pink Sorbet.   All of these products are from My Craft Spot. 

 You all may have done this or know about this already, but here is how I got the sentiment to fit perfectly in the curve, I put it on the metal die.  Yep, I did it sticks really well and you get it right where you want it.  I then inked it up and stamped it from the die.  Made it so easy.
