Summer Owl Card

Magnanimity_Owl Card

I’m loving cute owls right now.  This was a just a very simple card I made for my daughter one night cause I needed to write her a special note.  Do you make cards for your kids?  A very fun way to communicate. I love olive-y green and blues together this summer…it’s my color combo of the season!

Material List: SCAL program for Cricut (see sidebar link) to cut Fonts DB Woodsy (Owl and limb) & DB Cupcake (journaling spot).  They were first outlined with a brown Cricut Marker, then cut using shadow feature, and filled using Prisma Alcohol Based Markers.  OTHER:  RicRac (Sewing Notions Section).  Jewels (Oriental Trading Catalog). American Traditional Designs Cardstock.

This weekend, we’ve taken it easy with grilling, random chores (still involving clean up from the ice storm), and just simplifying so that we can be together.  It rained the 4th here, we are looking forward to fireworks tonight!

Have a great 4th of July!  What’s your favorite sale event?  There are several scrapbooking events, but I’ve only taken time to shop at ScrapNFonts…it was easy to do without getting out of the house and the savings were incredible (you can still shop until the 5th).  I love instant gratification.

    Jackie: Font “DB Woodsy” from ScrapNFonts.com is what you are looking for. You download the font, double click it, and it installs for you. Then you use it with your cricut machine and SCAL with markers and cut out using the shadow feature. Hope this helps!

ME: “MAGGIE”

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
