Very cute! I have four made but I haven't scanned them yet!

09-10-2008, 10:34 PM
What a great idea, and they are so cute. Seems almost a shame to split them up, though... they really look good as a foursome... could see these framed, as a picture :)

09-11-2008, 12:47 AM
Those are awesome owls! I love them!

Lily Lemon
09-11-2008, 10:34 PM

Sorry I'm too late for this one! Great owls, lily lemon and spiced!

09-14-2008, 12:23 PM
Lily Lemon -- Any chance you would be willing to trade one of your twinchie owls for one of mine? I love the Starry Night Owl or the Pink Owl. I'm so new here, not only to I have to make the card first but also figure out how to upload the photo when it's finished! :wideeyed:

09-14-2008, 04:51 PM
Wow, great owls, everyone! Can't wait to get started on mine!

Lily Lemon
09-14-2008, 10:23 PM

Lily Lemon
09-16-2008, 06:05 PM
I received twicjhies from Spiced Coffee and Kristinized! Thanks, both of you, for the extra twinchies for me!

09-17-2008, 03:25 PM
Sorry I am scanner challlenged - whenever I scan something with demension it looks like S$%#.
I made a hostess one too - but I am saving it for the element of surprise!
The owls are made out of puzzle pieces - you might have to use your imagination!
Also, I know these are chunky - so I am going to put some loose postage in the envie LL to cover the extra chub.
Can you pm me your addy?

Lily Lemon
09-17-2008, 03:33 PM
How clever! PMing you now with addy!

09-22-2008, 03:04 PM

Lily Lemon
09-22-2008, 11:54 PM
