Owls and Pineapples

Hey there! It's Monday, and we've got a busy week ahead of us. This week is VBS, so I won't have tons of time for crafting, but I'm going to try to get a few cards in. I started this card yesterday for Your Next Stamp and Just Us Girls. I finished it up today. I came home to pleasant air conditioning in my craft room. It's been sweltering for about 3 weeks since the air went out upstairs. They finally finished it today, and I think I'll be able to be a little more creative when I make cards now, not so enslaved to the sweat-inducing Alabama heat and humidity!

So here's my card. I used the colors and sketch from Your Next Stamp.

I was thinking about wings for the owl, and I had some pineapple paper in front of me, so I just cut out the pineapples for the wings and attached some googly eyes. It's supposed to be a light-hearted birthday card. Did I accomplish that mission? Here is the inside:

Come on and play along with me this week!
