SMILE - You're on Candid Camera (just kidding...)

I created this card for a special couple I met last weekend. It's kind of a funny story. A woman recently joined my church choir and she is from Korea - she has a fairly decent understanding of the language but she struggles now and then. She looks about twenty but she is actually in her forties which really shocked me! I met her husband and her twelve year old son on Sunday after the service. Her husband saw a lady with an owl necklace and mentioned in a joking manner that he wanted a wise owl, so I told him I would make him one... so here it is! I will give this to his wife at our choir practice this evening for her to share with her husband and see what he thinks! They are such a sweet couple. He speaks English very well, by the way.

I hope the "wise owl" is enjoyed by all!

  1. Love your wise owl card, Alyson! The colors are great and the chevron strips make a nice embellishment.
