Starburst Card and I'm an OWH winner!

I decided to take a swing at the Starburst tutorial from OWH's tutorial page.
Here's my first card.
 Paper: KI Memories - Enchanting
Fiskars scallop circle and 1" circle punch
Stamp: Sentiment is from Scrappy Moms - Owl Occassions; Owl is from Technique Tuesday - Wise Guys

 Here's my second card

The third card is my favorite overall.
I got the Owly ribbon at JoAnn and the sentiment is from Unity Itty Bitty - Thoughts of Who stamped on a Spellbinders Nestabilities.

I also wanted to share the goodies I won from OWH's Memorial Day blog hop!  Sandy was so sweet to put it so much awesome goodness!  (The yellow ribbon in the first card is some of what I won!)

Well, it's been quite a while again.  There have been a few changes since I last posted.  I've finally started Vet Tech school!  In addition to my classes and my fulltime job at the Zoo, I'm also working for a dermatology vet one night a week and volunteering with Wild Mammal Care of Alabam once a week.  Needless to say, I haven't had much time to blog.  I still continue to papercraft and have recently begun supporting a wonderful organization called Operation Write Home whose mission is "Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as 'AnyHero' cards of gratitude to encourage them."  

Here are a few cards I've made for my Dad's birthday last year.

I got my inspiration from Stamp-n-Paradise
A friend recently lost her dear dog after 16 years, so I created this card for her.  I did have trouble finding DOG pawprints.  Most of the stamps out there are just generic paw prints, neither cat nor dog (and there is a difference!).  I finally found this one, but I had to add the claws to the top.
My inspiration came from this card.
Instead of ribbon, I used some raffia I had laying around and added a bandana at the corner of the card because Piglet always had a cute bandana on.
Thats it for now...its off to study I go!
