Be Funky

Hope you are having a funky day!  I'm playing along with the Unity Kit of the Month Sketch Challenge today and decided to paper piece a funky owl.  Turned out pretty cool & funky I think!  I also ventured back into the pleated ribbon realm... I guess it's ok (see my previous lament here).  Definitely worked better with wider tape but was still frustrated.  It won't be a common practice around here so don't get used to it - hee, hee!

I'm headed back to work so this will be my last fresh post for a while.  Will do my best to serve up some more of my publication rejections over the next few weeks.
Have a great September and thanks for dropping in.  I always appreciate it.
