Two Challenges in One

Happy Sunday to y'all! Today I finally had time to sit down and create some cards. I do believe I was beginning to go through withdrawal. LOL! It's been kind of busy around here with no signs of it slowing down. This next month is my busiest for work and to make it even more hectic I just hired a new student worker on Friday that I need to train and supervise. No shortage of things to do.
So I worked on two different challenges in the same card. The first challenge is Midnight Madness blog challenge. I took a little liberty with the sketch but you can definitely see the sketch in my card.

The card uses the set Owl Always Love You by Gina K. I used Royal E-Z Rub-on Transfer Glitter Conversational Hearts. The background paper is Basic Grey Lime Rickey and the flower is recycled with the center being an adhesive rhinestone.
Now the second challenge that this card works for is the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #2. The challenge this week is to "make a card for your husband/significant other (or, if you are not married or dating, a loved one of your choice that you would like to show your appreciation to) to show them how much you love them." What a wonderful idea! I get so caught up in my work, the kids, the house, my volunteering, and definitely my card-making that I sometimes forget how important my DH is to me. So shortly he will find this card on his pillow with a special written note from me. Tom, I love you lots and so appreciate you being my soul mate and putting up with me! No easy fete!
So there's my card for today. I've finished another challenge card but I'll wait and post that one tomorrow. Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful beginning to the week and the month of September!

Happy inking,
