I hope you all had an awesome weekend. I had a jam-packed one myself...and mine started last Thursday! We said farewell to my brother and dad who had been staying with us since the start of February (I was a complete mess!), then picked up my two stamping besties for a whirlwind weekend of sightseeing, stamping and Twilight watching! Add a lot of driving, a stomach bug and three cards...I'm a wee little bit physically and emotionally drained today! But I'm glad I got to spend time with my favorite people. :)
I'll definitely share a photo or two with you later this week, but before this post gets any longer, here's one of those cards I worked on yesterday! This week's There She Goes challenge #145 is my favorite kind of challenge - a sketch!
It's a good one and I know you'll want to play along with us this week!
For my card I pulled out the You're A Hoot set because those cute, little owls fit perfectly in a rectangular panel! (No one said this was rocket science!) ;) I colored them with my reinkers and aquapainter brush, then cut them out and mounted them on the sky panel that I sponged with SU's Cool Caribbean and Rosie's Roadshow Cloud Template. Then I just used some scrap paper from MME and Crate Paper to create the rest of the elements. Added a little ribbon, a sweet sentiment, also from the set, and I was done!
