Happy Hallows Eve Eve!
I had hoped to post my latest version of Halloween in Owlville much sooner in the month, but it just didn't pan out. But better late than never...so without further ado, let me introduce Skeleton, Grim Reaper, Candy Corn, Dracula, Bride of Frankenstein, and Frankenstein. I can't believe the possibilities in that Owl Punch - endless I tell ya, ENDLESS!
If you aren't familiar with last years characters created with the Owl Punch, here's a quick look:
After I posted this card I think it would be safe to say it took on a life of its own. It is still by far one of my most popular cards; and I'm happy for that simply because its one of my favorites too! However, after finishing the latest version I think I may have a new card inching into the Number 1 standing. I purposely strayed away from cute costumes this time around and went for a spookier theme in my characters; care to know the reasoning? Well, in my far off imaginary world I think the original version is what Owlville must look like from 3:30pm - 7pm when the young Owls are Trick or Treating and the newest version is what Owlville must look like after midnight when the adult Owls come out to celebrate Hollows Eve. Makes perfect sense, right?
I hope that little insight into my crazy imagination didn't scare you off (but let's be honest - to think up most of the things I post one DOES need an overactive imagination, right? And almost everything is better with a story line!) LOL
