Patchwork Owl....


This weekend should be fun. It will be my first one back in the gym since the broken foot (teeny bit nervous). We also have really good friends in town and we are off to brunch with a friend who has recently become a neighbour. Action packed..

I am also hoping to find time at my desk for some craft therapy, this week has been LONG..

I started my therapy last night by making a card for Freshly Made Sketches #153 -
I was inspired by JT's take on the sketch. I had originally planned to do her combo with CDT, but changed my mind.

The stamp is a freebie from a magazine when I was home in August, JT loves Owls and so when I saw the stamp, it seemed perfect for the challenge as she was my inspiration. I coloured him with Promarkers - love the patchwork, so sweet. I added some papers from the DCWV Latte stack, some Papermania sparkly purple ribbons and some bling. Final touch was the simple sentiment by Hero Arts stamped in purple.

Very pleased with the result of my mini therapy session. This one is for you JT. you see craft buddies are amazing..even long distance :)
