"Owl" about Valentine's Day!

Today Emily woke up wanting to do valentine's for her class party. We were going to do something with candy but decided we would just take some candy to the class room and she would do cards. Our school district has a strict policy on "healthy foods" only, which means no candy or sweets for any holiday. It takes some fun out of the parties and makes it harder for the room mom to plan parties sometimes but does force us to be a little more creative and I don't think it's terrible that their celebrations are centered around a bunch of junk food. But, I think they should get treats once in a while and I think Valentine's Day is just one of those days that a little chocolate is quite alright. So we will sneak in some kisses, we just wont send them with our name on them!LOL

Anyway, We decided on the little owl card on the Cricut Indie Art cartridge. We were going to do something more traditional but it just wasn't sounding as fun. I cut the owls at 3", I meant to do them 3.75" but forgot to change the dial which is okay because we loved the size they are. I inked the edges a little bit and then Emily pretty much put them all together, including Carley's cards. She punched the little heart beaks out of pink paper using my hearts punch from Stampin Up, she told me she was going to be just like me when she grows up and she will have her own cricut and also sell Stampin Up because she knows I have fun like that almost everyday. Isn't that sweet? She comes in and makes cards with me a lot, just some days she's a little more into it than others. Carley usually likes to do that stuff too but she was working on a report for school and wasn't interested in being crafty when she was done. I think she just likes me to do somethings for her as she was upset when she found out Emily did her cards too - before that she was happy with them.lol Anyway, here they are... Cris says they don't look like Valentine Cards, but I think they just look like a 'different' valentines card, what do you think?
