Hugs, Hugs, Hugs

Happy Sunday folks.  I hope you are bundled up and keeping warm today.  I know down here in Florida the temperatures have dropped a little...more like a lot, but it is a nice excuse to go to Starbucks lol.
Anyhow, today I am showing you a fun card, clean just the way I like it, with a little pop of color.  I have a few friends who don't live anywhere near me, but I wish I could give them a big ole hug...that is where the inspiration came from when I was making this card. The image and sentiments are both from Avocado Arts.  The cute little owl is a sneak from the February set called, Wishes and Kind Thoughts.  It is hard to see in this picture, but I added Glossy Accents to the glasses (too stinking cute).  Glossy Accents is a cool liquid adhesive, that when used alone, when it dries it can resemble glass...cool stuff.  
The entire team is posting today (there are some new faces), so be sure to check them out too!

Avocado Arts stamps
Memento Ink

The embossing on the card is so pretty and the little owl reminds me of a cute little boy I know with big glasses. The pink lace ribbon adds a perfect touch. Thanks for giving me some cute ideas.

This is sure to make someone appreciate the cozy hug you sent along to make their day. I love using glossy accents to make a detail show up a little better. Cute idea for the glasses.
Thanks for sharing! :)
