What an ADORABLE little owl! I thought your post title was a Dana-play-on-words...but it's the actual name of that set! Tooo cute :O) I need to check out their stamps...what a fun set (love the ghost, and I'm normally not a Halloween-image fan).

Love how you paper pieced the belly and colored those eyes! I thought the eyes were a clever, punched design. Alas, no...it was our Dana's amazing coloring!! Also love how you sponged vanilla cream over the spider web...really makes it pop but keeps it understated. Nice work, girlie-girl! You are so creative :O)
