Welcome to Operation Owl a thank you hop for Kristal Andrew from her Design Team and a few guests who love her too.
If you have arrived here from Amy of Love to Crop you are in the right place! But if you have joined me from your Google Reader, Networked Blogger or email then please start at the beginning with Brenda of Creativity is only as State of Mind.
I am so pleased to have all of you join us for this hop. Kristal means so much to all of us and this is our little way to say Thank You and WE LOVE YOU Kristal!
I find myself grateful everyday for the lord introducing Kristal to me. Though we have never really met in person I feel like we are soul sisters. I believe we have a greater purpose together and we will conquer great missions together. NOPE, I don't know what those are yet but the lord will figure that out for us too :)
I found this quote online the other day and it reminds me of our friendship....
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit."

Kristal is this person for me! After we closed our retail store her blog postings lifted me everyday. I have really enjoyed getting to know Kristal online. She reminded me that when god closes a door he opens a window and that it was not ME who failed it was the situation. I hope that I can be this person for Kristal and help her through the trials that life throws at us. So I made this card for Kristal to tell her Thank You for all she has done for me. Which is so much more than inviting me onto her design team for K Andrew Design Art Stamps and introducing me to the great group of women that is on her team. (Love you girls!!)
|Owl Always Love You|
Now the picture of this card does it NO justice! I used K Andrew Design Art Stamps (Amazing You), some older Graphic 45 papers and the cardboard is from Canvas Corp. I machine stitched (without the thread) around the two sides, inked up the edges and colored my Unity Stamp Co. itty bitty with my copic markers. I also added gold Viva Decor pearls to the flower centers but you can't see them in the photo. That Unity stamp is brand new and I'm lovin' it :)
