For the Love of Owl's

Who doesn't love Owl's!  Sometimes when I am walking on the trails I will scare an Owl and it will fly out of it's tree.  Or maybe it scared me.  Who knows.  It's kind of a Chicken, egg kind of thing, I guess.
Here is an Owl card that I made using a Sizzix Die.  It was on the clearance Isle in Hobby Lobby.  I had to watch a couple of youtube video's to see how it was done.  I could not figure it out with the directions that were on the package.  But I love how it turned out.  I cut it out with Close to my Heart Sapphire for the main body.  I used an older paper pack and for the life of me I can't remember the name.  It has a western theme to it.  The beak is the back side of the paper.  I used Black and White Daisy for the eyes.  The inside is Daisy White too with sapphire ink.  The Stamp set is a disc one too.

Here it is open.

I think it is so cute!

Another Visitor

I have a new friend that has been visiting daily.  He flies over the fence and sits right at my door in my scrapbook room.  He paces back and forth pecking at the glass.  When I let the dogs out I have to go and get him off the deck.  It is kind of funny.  His mate is up in the barn setting on her eggs so I guess he just wants some company.  He does seem to be vocal out there.
He is a Guinea fowl, I say they are a prehistoric Turkey.  At least that is what they look like to me.  They make the oddest sound too.  Nothing like any of our other chickens anyway.

Hope your Easter was a fun one!

With 3 G-kids Easter is always fun.  The get so excited!  My oldest just turned 13 and so she hid all the eggs.  That was fun in its self.  I even found one of the eggs today when I went for my Dr. appt.  it was hidden behind the door handle.  Who would have thought to look there.  LOL!

I made a recipe from Pinterest using a muffin tin and bacon.  I placed the bacon in the muffin tin first and baked it at 350 for 15min then added an egg mixture of eggs, milk, and shredded mozzarella cheese and poured it into the center of the bacon wrap in the tin and baked it another 15min

I love how they turned out.  They looked like little roses.  They tasted pretty good.  The adults also got Champagne with pomegranate juice.  Yumm!

Not to much candy, this year they got money it there plastic eggs.  They loved that.
