Party Owls

Good morning my friends.  I hope that you are all doing well, staying dry, and have all the comforts that you need.  If you're in the path of Sandy, my thoughts and prayers go up for you that you will stay safe and come through this okay.

We have a great sponsor this week - Pink Cat Studio - and they have some really cute images in the shop.  Make sure to stop by and check it out.

Right now I have a new card for {Pin}spirational Challenge.  And as usual, we have a photo to give you inspiration to make your card.
Just look at all those luscious cupcakes.  Yummy.  For my card, I thought about why we make cupcakes sometimes - yep!  For a birthday party!   I used a layout from Mojo Monday - MOJO138.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Pink Cat Studio - Clown Owls in Car
  • Sentiment - from the pattern paper
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Crushed Curry; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Pattern Paper - My Mind's Eye - Hootenanny
  • Accessories - Ribbon from my stash; Stickles - Silver, Clear Rock Candy

Now it's your turn.  Check out all the awesome cards made by the fabulous DT and then get your crafting materials together and make a card for our challenge.  You could be the prize winner this week.  You can find links to all the blogs over there on the left sidebar.  Don't forget to go to the {Pin}spirational Challenge blog and link up the card you made.

Oh, before you take off to make your card, just want to let you know how well the {Pin}spirational Challenge Blog is doing.  Deanne has so many sponsors that she is going to set up a second Design Team!  That's right and you have a chance to be one of those people who could be chosen to be on the Design Team.  The Call will be open starting today until December 11.  So while you're checking out this week's challenge,  make sure to read over the requirements on the Blog so you can apply to be on the second Design Team.

Thanks again for stopping by and leaving your comments.  I really appreciate each one.
