After going to an art workshop this summer I decided I needed craft calling cards. To that end, I started doodling some designs during the evening hours. This is what I finally came up with:

My first attempt looked like this:

But I wasn't happy with it (in addition, I recently changed the name of my blog so...).

I liked the idea of having a background stamp with some sort of interchangeable element so I re-drew the owl, added the tree, and made the heart interchangeable:

I go into greater detail about my thought process on my blog but was excited about how it turned out so I thought I'd share. I hope you enjoy  Wink

They are super cute...I love the interchangeable heart.  What a great and simple idea to allow for brand cohesion!

Thanks everyone!  Grin I'm always in awe of everyone's abilities on here so I was excited to share. I think Owls are the only thing I'm able to draw with any consistency. I'm also becoming a little obsessed with the interchangeable stamp sets.

They're both super cute!  And I love owls.  Smiley
