It's a HOOT!

Good Afternoon everyone.. happy Wednesday!   Wow I love weeks that start with a holiday, we are already 1/2 way to the weekend again. 

I wanted to share with everyone a card I made last night for a friends birthday coming up this Sat.  I've had this stamp for a little while.  It was one of my last buys from Addicted.  It is a Penny Black stamp.  I am using CPS #169 Sketch this time.  At first it really threw me for a loop on what to do with the sketch but then it all came together when I ran into the sentiment stamp - "Owl be thinking of you today"    I decieded to stamp the sentiment on the circle and have it turn to read the saying.
So as you turn the wheel you read the sentiment.
My color combo came from Dancing in Pajamas Challenge #112 - Plum, Vanilla, Chocolate.  I wish the picture was better so you could really see the colors better.  I love purple/plum so I jumped on this color combo.  Now brown isn't really one of my favorites but it worked great for Mr. Owl.  It also worked for the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #22 - Least & Most favorite colors together and Critter Sketch Challenge #16 - Purple with flowers.
Here are three other challenges I'll submit to:

Well, I think I might be getting back into the groove of things. That is very good cuz I hate not feeling like stamping.. it's like a bad flu bug you just want to get over.

Big Mamma just wants to thank everyone that stops by and comments.  I love hearing good or bad what is on your mind.  Please if you ever see something that would have worked better on one of my creation please don't ever, ever not say something.  I need all the ideas I can get and that's what I'm here for to learn and get from all my fellow crafters..
