LOVE OWL-WAYS.....I WILL

Love him always, I mean!! This card I made for my husband who is totally the love of my life, my best friend, my soul mate!! I not only love him, I like him, which I think is pretty important!! He started his new job yesterday which will require him to be away from home Monday through Thursday and I miss him already! Yes, we talk on the phone about ten times per day, but it's not the same!!! It will take some getting used to...this new schedule....but it's not forever!! So, I decided since he was on my mind, that I would make him a little card and slip it into his truck when he comes home as a surprise!! I used Taylor's sketch challenge for this card, although I did flip the sketch on it's side because it worked better for me!! I also decided to ink up this cute little owl who has been sadly neglected since I got him - I can't believe I never used him before, he is so sweet!! I will be in my craft room for most of the day today (yippee!) working on projects for the Coconut Scrapshop Holiday Hooplah and some other things I have up my sleeve, so I will leave you the recipe! See ya tomorrow!

fabulous card, that is tough that hubbies job takes him away each week but look on the bright side, lots of guilt free crafting time then you can spend quality time together when he gets back! I seem to get lots done when my DH is away!
