Live Life Wisely

Good Morning, and happy Thursday! Today was my day to get the kids on the bus at my daughter's and poor Michael didn't feel good. I thought I was going to be bringing him home with me to rest for the day, but the prospect of resting for the day didn't go over so well and at the last minute he decided to go to school, so we rushed around getting him ready and he made the bus. I haven't had a phone call as yet, so I'm assuming he is feeling better.

Today's card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC24) a link to their website is on the right. I have used papers from a paper stack from DCWV from a few years ago and K & Company. Image is from Cornish Heritage Farms. Pearls are Kaiser. Gold leaves are Martha Stewart. Stars, Michaels. Used Ranger distress inks around the owl image. I'm also entering this card in the Cupcake Craft Challenge (http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/). The theme there is Things that go bump in the night. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the day. Until tomorrow........

Sue there is a wonderful artistic feel to this card that is so appealing. I see the sun setting and the twilight emerging behind the owl. The color of the leaves adds to the feeling of nighttime descending upon the land. Just exquisite through and through. Thanks for playing along with us at MMSC. We sure to appreciate it and look forward to more of your amazing creativity.
