2 Sketches 4 You - Groovey Owlies


Good Morning Everyone,

I can hardly believe its Thursday already - when did that happen? Yesterday has been filled with errands, dentists appts for little wee ones who won't sit still, doing laundry from camping (ugh!) and unpacking... (still not fully unpacked! - does it take you guys forever to unpack - it always seems to me that there are more clothes coming back then going... :). Even though we got home 
Mon. night - I had to wait till Tuesday afternoon after work 
to get our mail from our neighbor who has been holding it while we were gone and I was b-e-y-o-n-d pysched when I saw a big 
package of yumminess from the wonderful ladies at 2 Sketches 4 You!   I let out a big Whoooooop!

Thank you so much Laura and Kazan and beautiful DT for the wonderful sketches and encouragement during the Ultimate Card Showdown - I am still in happy shock :)!!! It was such a total 
blast!! I was so psyched to open my package - but I wanted to take a quick picture - so I ran home to get my camera and had my neighbor snap a quick pic - I was so excited that I opened it right at her house! - lol!!! She was cracking up at my shrieks of delight :) She told me I was speaking a different language when I was explaining to her what the different products were - lol! 
I couldn't wait to make a card with the yummy goodies! And so here is a quick card I made using Laura's sketch 31 and I used the 
yummy papers from Teresa Collins and cut out the little black swirlie patterns on the paper from the package to go on either side of the oval - I loved stamping and coloring these cutie pie owlies from Inky Antics - seriously there is just something about owls that is just so adorable. I popped the side swirlies on dimensionals and added a little bit of yellow bling on the sides. I loved making this little owlie card and can't wait to ink up the rest of the owlies - they are such a hoot! (sorry couldn't resist! ;) Here is my card for Laura's sweet sketch:

Card Details:
Ink: Stazon Black and Martha Brown
Stamps: Groovy Owls - Owl Trio from Inky Antics
Accessories: Martha punch, ribbon from Taylored Expressions, bling from K&Company, oval cutters from Creative Memories prisma color pencils,

Well, I am off to the exciting and glamorous world of finishing laundry, lol!! A huge thank you and even HUGER HUGS to the lovely ladies over at 2 Sketches 4 You and I am so glad I am back from our vacation so I can get back into the crafting corner and catch up and get to come over and visit all of you!

Thanks for coming over to visit!
Big owlie hugs to all!
Sankari :)

ps - a huge hug to Clouds Shadler - she has been an amazing DT member for 2S4U and is leaving to prepare for her final year of college. Please check out her sweet blog: Cloud's Color Garden - and drop some love - she is amazing! 

pps- hope you all have a fantastic Thursday! (its almost friday! yipeeeeeeeee!!!)
