OUR CREATIVE CORNER SKETCH CHALLENGE

Happy Monday all!! This weekend went by really fast!! What with Valentines Day and then the Daytona Race yesterday, I was busy constantly!! My in-laws came over before lunch yesterday and stayed until late last night so I entertained a lot! Even though the race was rained out before it was over, they hung out anyway, lol!! We had a nice time though! I did manage to squeeze in time to do the Our Creative Corner sketch challenge which is a first for me!! What a fun sketch, I loved playing around with it. I decided to use my owls again along with some really fun dp called Good Morning Sunshine - oooh, there are some cute patterns in this pack!!! And, it goes soooo well with Pacific Point, which I have wanted to play with, but have not really gotten a chance to! I enjoyed making this card as it is for a good friend of mine that is always there for me and makes me laugh even when I really have nothing to laugh about!! I hope she likes it!! Thanks so much for stopping by - and make sure you pop back in as I am going to post my blog candy for you all here in just a bit after I run the kiddos to their various activities!! See you then!

Yeah, it was kinda a let-down that Daytona got rained out...doesn't make for a very exciting finish. However, I can't complain too much...Kevin got 2nd!

Your owl card is adorable. Love what you did with the OCC sketch!
