"Owl" be thinking of you.... ;)

Good Saturday, gentle blogging friends! :) It's been a few days--I've been spending a lot of time with family and friends for the Thanksgiving holiday. I hope that your holiday was as wonderful as mine was!

By the way, if I get 100 followers by January 1, 2012, I will be having a huge goodie give away! I purchased some of the things I'll be giving away during the sales yesterday. Just saying... :)

Well, I have not been crafting for my challenges quite as much as I'd like, but I did manage to create something for the Wee Memories Woodland Creatures challenge AND using the colors from the current CR84FN color challenge! :)



I was commissioned to make a card for a friend of a friends birthday...did that make sense? I'll put it another way--a friend of mine has another (non-mutual) friend who is having a birthday soon. And she likes owls. And I have owl stamps and like to create cards. So, my friend asked me to make a card for her friend. Whew...

Anyway, it fits perfectly into this challenge--because owls are literally woodland creatures!!! And owls literally live in brown, tan, and green surroundings! ;D

Here is the card~

And the details~




Stamps are from Stampin' Up! and Bo Bunny, ink from SU!, paper from Basic Grey and American Crafts, punches by SU!, rhinestones from Basic Grey

What are your thoughts and feelings towards my creation? I am quite pleased with how it turned out! :) I am completely unsure as to WHY I am writing so politely and formally, but I have tried to rewrite this post to no avail....UGH! Happy birthday stamping! :)
