Awwww, my favorite little owl! He's adorable all dolled up with his vest and hat sitting in front of the big full moon. Sooo cute! Awesome coloring!

my favorite tool???? wow, I guess that would have to be my paper cutter... sounds simple, but i use it constantly!

Mt Hoot is a HOOOOT :) he is sooo cute. My favorite tool(s) have to be my nice sharp fiskar embroidery size scissors for cutting around stamped images and my embossing stylus because it has the smaller ball end as well as a larger for moving little pieces to their resting places. The only other favorite is my fingers! I am a hands on person for sure!! ..lol
thanks for a chance for some candy, Yummmmmm
Tina Foley

I love my punches...
scallop circle, dotted border

My favorite would be my heat gun. I just love how embossing can step your projects up to a whole new level!

The owl is so cute!
favorite tool would be the cuttlebug, or maybe my new ATG gun. I would love to have stock in adhesive considering the amount I go through in a year, lol.

My favorite craft item would be my glitter, baby! You can't have enough bling!

Thanks for a chance to win your speical gift!

Happy Birthday! What a cute set - love the hats! So many tools to choose from, hard to choose a favorite, but I couldn't craft without my tweezers. An extra hand always helps. Have a great birthday!!

My favorite tool would be stickles. I love you can take a stamped image and make it look so much different and so sparkly. I love your cards and your creativity is amazing. It would be really neat to win this set. I could do so much with it. I hope you have a great Birthday.

Jennifer Wheeler

Eek! What an adorable card and stamp set you have today! Would be awesome to win that!!! My favorite tool right now is my Wizzard die cut machine. I use if for almost every single project! So perfect for cards!

Happy Birthday!!!
My favorite crafting tool? SU snips. I can't make a card without cutting something.

Happy a super day! Hugs.

Happy Birthday! I love your cute owl card! My favorite crafting tool is my Cuttlebug and embossing folders. I love adding texure!

My favorite tool is my Big Shot. Love to use my nestabilities and textured plates.

It's just a few minutes after midnight here in Ontario Canada and we want to WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANNA. We hope your day is filled with lots of fun, love, hugs and kisses. Love your Whipper Snapper Designs.

OH I love your Halloween set - particularly the mummy chicken -- I LOVE chickens. My favorite tool would be my Cuttlebug - I use is all the time for embossing and die cutting. So much fun in such a tiny machine!

Could an owl be more adorable? Love the look of the kraft paper. Love your card!

Only one tool? I use my ATG gun all the time but I also use my rotary cutter, clear ruler and self healing mat every day too. Don't you just love well made tools?

Your owl card is Adorable! My favorite crafting tool is my Spellbinders dies. They're so versatile..layered to frame a stamped image on a card, make tags, shaped card bases. I love it!
Have a fabulous birthday Anna!

Please enter me in your drawing. I LOVE your illustrations!

After seeing all of your wonderful cards, I bought a tracing wheel and love it. I can't justify sewing on my cards when I don't make time to sew clothes, so the faux stitching is great!

Hi Anna,
I am still chuckling about my comment yesterday - totally NOT reading the whole blog entry that day and just jumping ahead to answer the daily question. Thanks again for letting me know that I won! LOL BTW, my fave tool(s) right now are my dies(Nesties, etc.) along with my Wizard. :D

Love your card - soooo cute. I think my favourite tool is my paper piercer - probably sounds silly, but I can use it for so many things, not just poking holes. I spread Stickles and Crystal Effects around with it, can add a wee bit of glue where it needs to go, pick up a piece of fuzz from an inkpad ... it has so many uses!!!! It's probably my cheapest tool too. LOL.

EEK, I love when you get your crafty on!! That owl card is amazing!

I have to say my favorite tool is the sponge dauber, hee! Pair one with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, and I can almost fake coloring! I love the ones that you buy that have the little plastic handles...big, small, medium, I don't care, those things are great!

Oh man, this is the cutest Halloween set ever! I LOVE mummy chicken!!
My fav crafting tool is my pattern tracer! It makes the best faux stitch edges! That baby stays right on my work table.

Paper Piercer paired with a White Uni-ball Pen. I love my holes!

Hey, I found a new pattern for another cute wallet, today. I'm about half way through. I'll have to send you a review when I'm done!

I love the cute little goblins in that stamp set! Great idea for masking the moon. My favorite tool is my Big Shot. I use it for almost every card. I use it for die cuts and embossing folders.

Only one more night!! Happy Birthday Eve!
Adorable card! I love this set of yours. I think my favorite tool is my cuddlebug - I use it all the time to die cut and emboss. At least right now. That could change in the near future though. I tend to go in spurts and use one thing all the time for a while and then something else grabs my attention.

My favorite tool is my corner chomper! I love that thing, it adds a nice touch to my cards when I want to add a little something special

My favorite crafting tool has got to be the cuttlebug. I use it on almost every card someway or another. I love the Halloween stamp set!! Just adorable. You are a fabulous illustrator!! Happy Birthday!

That card is so cute!!!! I would love the set...I am especially in love with the mummy chicken..lol

My favorite tool is my tweezers....I use them to pick up all kinds of bitty doo-dads and bling! I also use them to position the images on the card before I stick them down for good to make sure everything is straight! I was going to say my favorite tool was my reading glasses...lol....but I thought that might be showing my age!

My favorite tool is my tweezer Bee. Happy Birthday. Thanks for chance to win some fun blog candy.

Oh my goodness this card is soooo cute!
My favorite crafting tool is my Cuttlebug. I use it on almost every card I make in some way or another.
Have been enjoying your B-Day posts a great deal this week.

Hi Anna!
Happy Birthday Week! My favorite tool would have to be my cuttlebug! I love all the different disks and all the embossing folders.


Hi x Lovely birthday candy x My favourite tool has to be an old dentists tool I use as a pokey type tool, I use it all the time x Leigh x

Listing my favorite tool is super easy! It is my piercing tool! I call it my third hand, because i use it for everything. When i can't find it in my messy mess, I freak! My fingers don't always want to work, and that sharp little point is such a help!

Hi Anna,
I'm in awe of the cards you create...I tend to more of a scrapper than a card maker, so everycard I see is truely amazing. My favorite tool... um well for crafting it's my Pazzles, i can customize my pages in a snap... and if I can say my 2nd fav tool is my camera. I love to take pics of my grandbabies.

Hi Anna! That owl is super cute!! Being able to list just one of my favorite crafting tools is a toughie as I seem to be a collector of tools. I guess I would have to say my go-to tool is Perfect Layers. I purchased it years ago and it is one I use time and time again. Thanks for offering this sweet giveaway!! dee marie

I'm a tool freak and it's hard to pick just one ... but I use my ATG tape gun on every project, so that's my pick for fav! I picked mine up a few years ago and paid only $35 for the tape gun (now avail at Mike's where you can use a coupon - even better!). After the initial payout, the savings are great - I only pay $1 per tape refill. Amazing deal since they're 36 yds in length!

Thanx for the inspiration and t'riffic blog candy opp!

Love the owl!!! Just too darn cute!! Favorite tool...tough question! This is going to be strange but I love the aqua painter. I find it extremely relaxing to water color images. Yep, that's my favorite!!

My favorite crafting tool would have to be my cuttlebug. I love being able to cut, and emboss using all the different dies and folders available!

This week my favorite crafting tool is my Big Shot...If bling counted as a "tool", I would be forced to say BLING!!!!!

My favorite crafting tool is my cuttlebug. Couldn't live without it. Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Birthday.

Like most of us crafters, so many of my tools are important. I have to say that my Copic markers are really incredible. I discovered them at a time when I was getting a little bored with crafting. They re-energized me! I always liked coloring when I was a kid, but now I like it as an adult, too!

I am a huge fan of owl stamps, I love,love this card. I would be happy to win the card!!! My favorite tool is my Cuttlebug. I use it for almost every card I make.

This is such a hard question! But if I had to choose, I would say my paper cutter. I hate crooked layers, and having my paper cutter makes it so easy to make everything straight and even...

Outside of my paper cutter my most used tool may be my paper piercer. I don't do a lot of piercing but use it to help line up mats, pick up and place bling on cards as well as small drops of glue and it is always on my desk!

That owl card is a hoot-very cute!!

That is one precious little guy, Anna and a darling card.

My favorite tools of all are my paint brushes.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your owl card!!! The whole set is adorable! I guess my favorite tool is my Cuttlebug. I love the versatility - embossing, die cuts, etc.

Thanks for having such an awesome blog!

Chris Pierson

What a great card!!!! Your images are so much fun and the coloring & detailing that you've added just bring it all together. Another inspiring creation Anna!

My favorite tool? Gosh, it seems to change from week to week. I love using my Cuttlebug with either embossing folders or Nestabilities fo give my cards a "professional" look. My Scorepal gives me crisp folds and neat backgrounds. I'm crazy about the Martha Stewart border and edge punches. And for the very basics, my Cutterbee scissors and a good sharp paper trimmer are essential. Did you really ask for just one? ......

Chose one? My 'Bug. Chose two? My Scor pal and ATG! (oops that was 3!)...
Love your moon on that card!!!
What generous gifts for YOUR birthday!
Best wishes!

Oh Anna, your HOOOOOTY Owl is SOOOO cute! :D I love the moon, and the limb, and the sentiment! It's just a GREAT card! :D
Oh, I love my tools...SO MANY to choose from!
Since I love embossing folders, the tool would have to be my Big Shot. I love the Cuttlebug too, and I LOVE my Stampin' Up guillotine paper cutter. NEVER a ragged edge, and perfect cuts! It's so much better than the sliding blade ones.
Thanks for another chance to win your celebration candy! I hope you have the BEST birthday tomorrow, EVER! (Your card is going to be late; I didn't get it mailed in time) :(( Sorry!!!

Love your blog a lot! Right now my favorite tool is my Glue Glider Pro. I have not looked back after finding this one. Right size and best holding glue.
Happy bday to you.

Love your cute owl in the moonlight! My favorite tool is pretty boring, but I couldn't make cards without my fiskars paper cutter. I notice a few other people listed that too. I also love my big shot & dies. What a great prize package - you're too sweet!

Cute card! I think my favorite crafting tool is metal dies. You can do so much with them!

THere are many crafting tools that I couldn't live without. I have to say the one that is a must have is my Score Pal.
I love having a crisp score and having the ends match when folded!
Have a Happy Day!!!

I love your illustrations and your coloring is so wonderful - oh to have that kind of talent.

Love, Love, Love Mr. Hoot Owl and his hat! Just adorable. That big moon behind him. Makes me think of the woods and the scary noises you hear at night, great for Halloween.
My favorite tool is my Cutterbee Scissors. I would be lost without them. Next would be my Fiskar paper cutter.

I couldn't craft without watercolor paper since that is my favorite "coloring" technique. Happy Birthday!

I confess...I am a marker JUNKIE!! I love markers, crayons, colored pencils. I am a child at heart. I love to color.

Another fantastic and fun design, Anna. I love the effect that masking off a moon gives to an image, and I love the trademark cuteness of your fat branch and leaves. I guess my favorite tool would be my blending stumps and gamsol. Prismacolors and gamsol have become the color medium I reach for most often and that I keep closest at hand, but we all use soooooo many tools since this trade is so diverse. I am a short attention spanned gal so I tend to try and move on after each card. I love my spellbinders and my embossing folders but am glad to reach for my heat gun and powders from time to time and I also ADORE Tombow Mono Multi glue because it allows me a bit of time to reposition my design if it is off (and I am a little anal about that). It also dries flexible and strong so no stiff or crunchy cards. Your day is getting closer. I hope it is awesome for you.

Mr. Hoot Owl is a hoot!!!! What a cute card.
I love my Cricut!!! Well, mine and my mom's! It was much cheaper when the cost was shared. Now we are getting into trouble with the cartridges. Opps!!!!
I hope your birthday week is going great!!!!
Hugs, Manetta

Anna, you are seriously my favorite stamp artist ever. That owl is just to die for!

My favorite tool are my Marvy Punches. . . still can't live without them!

Hi Anna! I love this witchy owl! How cute!!! The mummy chick is adorable, too, and I would love to put some ink on that gal!

My favorite tool?? Gosh - I LOVE them all so much! I guess I'll have to say the new little Scor-Pal - my cards fold perfectly now (and they never did before!). I also love my Nesties, Scor-Tape, and the new Corner Chomper (never thought I needed another corner rounder but this one is amazing).


There isn't a question in my mind which is my favorite tool.....Cricut!! I scrapbook alot and the money I save on letter stickers is huge. Any size or font imaginable!

Great card Anna!!
My best tool is my very sharp pair of scissors!!

This is owl card is just darling!
I have to say that nestabilities is my fave tool...right above my scorepal. Can you tell I like nice straight and even cards? LOL

Have a tricky Birthday ;-) I guess my favourite crafting tool must be my Cuttlebug machine and my Spellbinders dies...

I have a cutting mat on my desk that was designed for quilters... the grid markings and angles come in so handy. And it wipes clean easily, too! Thanks for another great giveaway!

Happy Haunting is the cutest set yet! My fave tool is my paper trimmer for sure. I couldn't live without it and am constantly replacing the blades because I use it so much! Thank you for the chance to win!

this card is my fave this week! love the way you did the sentiment.

I am not sure if it's my favourite but I use my cuttlebug the most of all my tools.

Happy Birthday week, Anna
I just love your card....absolutely adorable!!
My favorite tool is my Zutter bind it all...love adding rings and ribbons to booklets and journals!!

Karen x

OOOH! Adorable card!!!!

My Favorite tool(s) are my dies! I LOVE using my MFT Scallop Edge Die!

How cute is that card! Love it. My favorite crafting tool would have to be the cricut, I use it very time I craft... it is so versatile and fun.

My favorite crafting tool . . . .stamp a ma jig! It can be used during the design phase and well as for proper placement. I love most of my tools, but the stamp a ma jig really doesn't have another tool I can use in it's place!

The tool I use over and over and just love is my Scor-Pal/Scor-Buddy. I just love those for making my scores so nice and crisp and easy to do. Love your give-away prizes today--thanks so much for the chance to win. Wishing you the very best of birthdays!

I think my favorite tool, having to pick just one, is my cuttlebug. I use it all the time with my Spellbinders and embossing folders. It just adds so much to my cards.

Thanks for the opportunity to win.


Thanks for the fun give-aways!
Die cutting machine-awesome tool!
So many tools, so little time!


How cute!!! Happy birthday week again!
My favorite tool? Wow, how does anyone pick just one? I guess my Making Memories paper cutter is the one thing I HAVE to have! There's no card with no cutter, and this one never fails me. Always straight cuts, Always! I have a pile of cutters that have disappointed me through the years.

I love this little guy!! My favorite tool is my stamp-a-ma-jig. I use it on almost every card for one thing or another. I like things to be straight :)

Favorite crafting tool hands down has got to be my Cuttlebug, although my Stamp-a-ma-Jig comes in at a close second. Your little Halloween owl is adorable!

Think my favorite tool is my paper cutter.....it's definitely a must have. Thanks for the chance for such an awesome prize.

Your Halloween owl is just too stinkin' cute! Oh my...hard to pick just one tool. The first one I thought of is my Stamp-a-ma-jig. It's a necessary tool for the perfectionist in me. And like others have said, I love my Cuttlebug and Prismacolor pencils. One more day til your big day! :)

My favorite crafting tool is definitely my Cuttlebug. I love the textures and die cuts that are so easily achieved. My second favorite is my Copics. They're just fun! Love your card!

Oooh, owl card is my favorite yet--I like how you made a little fringe come out from the button!

I reckon my favorite tool has become my Cricut, which my hubby totally surprised me by getting me for Christmas. Haven't gotten to buy many cartridges for it yet, but sure enjoy cutting out letters and things for my sons' school/PTA-related events. Happy early birthday -- looks like the weather will be beautiful!

So many to choose from, it's hard to say . . . my Cuttlebug with folders and Spellbinder dies. I love using ribbon and buttons. I love the self-adhesive crystals and pearls. Thank you Anna! Happy Birthday week!! ~ Melissa T.

My favorite and most used crafting tool is a Stamp-a-ma-jig. I don't know what I would do without it! I love, love, love that cute owl!

My favorite is the cuttlebug, then the cricut, all the dies, buttons and bows and the list could go on & on. My husband says I have too much, I say I need a bigger room!

Love Mr. Hoooot Owl - so cute. My cuttlebug is my favorite crafting tool... it has so many uses. I use it for my Nestabilities, embossing, cutting... LOVE IT! Thanks for the many chances for blog candy. I hope you are enjoying your birthday week as much as we are!! ~Suzy Gloth

Lately, my sewing machine is my most used and favorite tool. It was passed down from my Grandmother, and I'm busy making fabric flowers, skirts, pants, etc, for my 18 mo. old daughter!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Amy L. Weber

Happy Birthday Eve! Thanks so much for gifting US in celebration of YOUR birthday; so very generous of you!

I have to say that for now, my Turkish spindles are my favorite crafting tool. Beautiful wood, ingenious design, fun to make yarn with.

My cuttlebug is my favorite tool and then my cutterbee scissors. Those scissors are the best!

I have to say I'm enjoying a card every day this week from you, Anna. Hope you enjoy something you love doing on your birthday tomorrow!

Love your owl card! It is so hard to pick one tool, but I guess I would say my Big Shot Express. It is so easy to use and since I have trouble with my hands at times- it is a hand saver as well as a time saver.


Cuteness!! I love the little owl, and how you made the moon behind him.

My favorite crafting tool is ink. It gives everything a nice finished look. :)

I adore owls. This would be a really fun set to own. My favorite tool would be a toss up between my Cuttlebug and my Scor-Pal and Scor-Buddy. I just got the buddy and it's great! Now I'm off to read all the organization tips. Once can never have too many ideas for that.

My favorite tool is my BigShot, by far! I often tell people that I'd marry it if it would have me. :) I love that it cuts all sorts of dies. It can be used to make embellishments, cards, boxes... and with a myriad of materials. For versatility, it can't be beat.

Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Thanks so much for the chance to win! :)

Fun card! I really like the fall colors. I'm ready for the leaves to change.

Fave tool? hmmm, I guess that would be my ScorPal. It helps me make 3D items, add decorative lines, and makes my folds nice and crisp.

hmmm . . . it's tie between my Cuttlebug and my Fiskers paper cutter . . . hard question!!

I really admire the way you colour in your stamps!! I've been practising this skill and often refer to your work for inspiration.

Great Halloween card - I love that Whipper Snapper set! I'd have to say that I use my Nestabilities more consistently than probably any other craft tool I have. A close second would be my Copic markers and Prisma pencils - I love to color :-)

This card is amazing and so inspiring. Love the colors and that adorable owl. I love so many tools, but I would say that my Sizzix or Big Shot. Cuz I can use them to emboss and cut. Thanks for a chance at this awesome birthday celebration giveaway. Happy Birthday!

I LOVE heat embossing, so I'll go with my heat gun! My Big Shot is in a close second!

Thanks for the chance to win!

My favorite craft item(s) are adhesives. I love all adhesives, but I am particularly fond of brads! They are so versatile. If you have a brad and you don't like the color, you can change it by heating it with your heating tool (use tweezers!) and then dipping it in embossing powder.
