The Lady Commander of Copics had a few of her monster friends over today to play some Mario Party. As I had numerous chores to do around the Guild Hall I was not able to join in the merriment. I could hear them all laughing and chatting and eating crisps. As I was passing through the hall, a basket of clean tunics on my hip, I almost crashed right into one of the ‘lil monsters. He stood in the hall, blinking at me with large bulbous eyes and clutching a half dead owl. We stared at each other for about 20 awkward seconds before he spoke. “This mine,” he said holding out the poor bird for me to see. I opened my mouth to speak, but before I could get anything out, the orange monster had turned and scurried back down the hall, feathers from the owl trailing behind him.
started this card by stamping “Little Hoo-Hoo” by Stampotique and
colouring him with Prismacolors. I then used my new stamp “Cooped Up
Notes” by Unity and coloured the edges with Distress Inks. I used up the rest of the background sheet I had managed to finally cut up for this card. I added that
'ol red stitched ribbon and a super old heart button for embellishments then
stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s “Sophie’s Sentiments”. I manged to score -90 hoarder exp points, bringing my level down to 10,303. I sure have a long way to go...
the inside I used the leftover strips of the background paper and
stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn “On the Mend” set.
I stamped some simple hearts on the envelope and quickly coloured them with Distress Markers.

I later poked my head into the room to check on the Lady Commander and
her fuzzy friends I saw the orange monster clutching that poor owl so
tight it couldn’t breathe....literally. I’m fairly certain the life
force left its body about two minutes later. I wonder if Olga knows a
good owl stew...
