World Card Making Day!

Here I am, I do live on the edge of the earth- but I haven't fallen off yet!  This has been a very busy year, I think getting ready for my son's wedding was nearly as stressful as my own was- maybe more so!  But now I have a lovely daughter-in-law and a precious granddaughter.  Here's a pic of the wedding party, all of my boys are in it, the one on the far right is the brother of the bride.  And yes, I made my granddaughter's gown.

 And now for my card:

Today was World Card Making day.  Recently I won some online auctions and acquired two pounds of TAC stamps.  I spent a good portion of the day mounting and indexing the Christmas stamps and a few others.  So they are tucked away in my Christmas stamp album and will be used soon to complete the Christmas cards for this upcoming season.  
The card that I completed for today is also for a monthly challenge.  By entering a card I automatically get the next digi for free- so I win!  If they have a random drawing for an additional prize I have a chance to win that too!  It's not too late to get the first one for free at Designed2Delight.
In addition to the adorable "Owl and Pumpkins" digi from Designed2Delight, I used a sentiment from a TAC set called "Whooo Loves Ya?"  (Many of the old TAC sets are available from Red Rubber Designs.)  I colored the image with water color pencils form CTMH and stamped the image with SU's Early Espresso ink, a little ribbon and some googly eyes added just the right touch.

So now I am committed to updating my blog every month to get the free digis, so stay tuned for more!
