Owl Crazy --- CPS sketch

Hi Friends,

Yay! It's Saturday. Oh, how I love the weekends. This morning, I got up to participate in the CPS sketch challenge. I have had so much trouble crafting during the week recently because I'm so tired when I get home. Work is really wearing me out. So it was really nice just to get up this morning and craft a little bit. I have chores to get done, but I am glad I spent a little time doing something fun.

You're going to be seeing a trend. Owls, I've caught the bug. I know they've been trendy for awhile, but I didn't jump on the bandwagon at first. (I'm always behind!) But now I'm in love. For today's card, I used a technique that Jennifer McGuire discussed on her blog awhile back. She stamped an owl on the back of the paper and then cut it out. So I used that idea as the basis of my owl. I've made several of these guys, so you will be seeing more. (I also have another card for this sketch but turned on its side). Anyway, onto the card:

I had to put the googly eyes on there. My husband thinks all cards are better with googly eyes! This card is very fallish, so I plan to send it to someone who has a fall birthday.
What are you plans for the weekend? I hope you all enjoy your weekend

This card is adorable. Love the would grain background and the googlie eyes. Like you I'm also a little late jumpin' on the bandwagon. By the time I don't I start to like a style I debate whether I should get attached since popularity will probably change soon anyway.
