An Owl Prowl FREEBIE!!!
I've been swamped with creative projects and family emergencies lately, and for some reason, owls just seem to be popping up all over. I think it's kind of like being pregnant or buying a new car. You never notice all the pending babies or exact copies of your car until YOU are expecting (whether baby or car, lol!).
And here's a freebie owl for you. Commercial use okay, no attribution necessary! Just click on the image.
Owl I am I owe to yooooooo!
I have gathered a whole bunch of places on the internet where you can find owls in one form or another. Add this free one to your next layout or kit (yes, it's commercial friendly!) and get inspiration from a whole congress of others! (Did you know a group of owls is called a "congress"? I don't know, owls are normally a symbol of learning and wisdom. I don't see how that relates to Congress, do you?)
