Happy Monday!! Phew! Its been a wee bit since I blogged! I was over at the East Coast to attend the wedding of an old and dear friend of mine and visit my family! I took some craft stuff to do while there - but never had a chance. My mother is the type of person who organizes and structures everything - so as soon as I came home - she already had a packed calendar of all the things that we were going to and see and have fun doing :) I totally enjoyed being at home and having a bit of a vacation
from blogging - but it is nice to be back and get some mojo flowing :)
What better way to start of the week then a YUMM-a-licious sketch from the fabulous Laura from 2 Sketches 4 You!!! I adored this sketch and for my card - I actually turned the sketch 90 degrees counterclockwise to create this friendship card - which is being sent to one of my friends back east who I have known since highschool and had a chance to meet up with while we were there. I wanted to make something special for them - so here is a forever friendship card to one of my forever friends and her 5 amazing children (that's why I had to put 5 cute owlies :).
This week the sponsor over at 2 Sketches 4 You is the awesome Sakura of America who really have to coolest pens ever!!! I colored me owlies with the metallic, glaze and sparkly pens and it made all the Owls just pop out more. I also used the pens for some faux stitching across the top of the different layers. I love how easily these pens glide - nice and smooooth :)

Ink: Potter's Clay Memento Ink
