Designed2Delight Freebie and SU Workshop cards

 
  Here I am at the last minute making my D2D card......I had a killer headache earlier in the week, so no stamping, then working......  I got out the Copic Markers tonight- all browns, and whipped up a card and an ATC to meet the deadline for posting.
   Designed2Delight offers a FREE digital image the first week of the month, and if you submit a card, you get the next week's image FREE.  If you did not play the week before, you can purchase the image and jump in the fun of receiving Free weekly images. 
  This week the image was these 2 Owls- my daughter is in a Sorority at Ohio State University- the Sorority Mascot is an Owl.  I love making her cards and sending them to her- they are called Little Hooters when they are chosen for the sorority- I know....but look at the sentiment I found to go on the card.

  I also made a matchnig ATC for a challenge blog called Fun with ATC's that was just started up- this week the theme is Purple and brown. I usually like to make my ATC's 'Technique' samples, so I added a Splash of Double Bugging (the purple CS) from the Technique Junkies newsletter. The BG behind the owls is called Milkpaint from the TJ newsletter- and there is a free tutorial on the TJ homepage- I did not add the lines as you can tell, and used More Mustard and Close to Cocoa.  (If you cannot resist joining, please tell Pat I sent you!).
  My friend Kim called and asked me to spend some time with her today, and was interested in going to a SU workshop-which I rarely attend because of time.  I do not see her nearly enough, so said sure.  This is what we made- and I have to say I am thrilled with the Go Green card- is that not too cute? The SU demo that held the workshop, Pam- her SCS name is Churchmama.  We had a great time.   
  Thanks for stopping by today!  We are expecting snow in Chicago today and tomorrow- I hear it is alot, so we'll see!

Chi Omega?

Your owls card is great, and I love how you translated it into an ATC.

The workshop cards are pretty cool - I'm surprised that the demo used a discontinued punch to make the balloon.
