Wowser, I haven't posted anything on Craftster for literally months!!  Roll Eyes

Sooooo ages ago now (couple of years I think Shocked) I made a Pirate Owl for a swap, don't think I ever posted on here with piccies mind, but someone saw the one I have on my Folksy (I loved him so much I had to make more!!) and commissioned me to make a girl guide owl for her, and I couldn't turn down the challenge, so I present to you Rosie the Guider Owl Grin



Can't say I was ever in the Girl Guides or anything like that, but with a little guidance on colours and neckerchief and logo I think I got it about right.  I'm particularly proud of the trefoil logo.  I haven't mailed Rosie to her new mum yet but she has seen piccies and says she's perfect so I'm super happy.



Back view



And finally, Rusty the Pirate Owl (sans eyepatch) checking out the new arrival.  



Don't you think it looks like he's just pinched her bottom??!!!!!

Thanks for lookin anyways Cool
Loops



EDIT:
Since I haven't posted about Rusty the Pirate Owl before, here's a couple of extra gratuitous shots of him in his full grumpy glory!
