Sometimes you just have to make a simple and happy card

I made this card yesterday after the Southerly came through, yes it's cool again in Sydney and I'm loving it. We experienced the hottest weather in 50 years in the last week and it was horrible but atleast we didn't loose electricity at home which thousands of people did.

I have made this card for my good friend who absolutely loves owls. Its really funny she normally gives me presents with Babushka doll designs and I give her presents with owl designs, we both know each others taste so well. I wanted this card to be bright and happy and I really wanted to show off the pattern of this beautiful paper, I have also decorated the inside of the card. Simone's birthday is not until April so I have to keep it safe somewhere. I often give my cards to my husband to keep until I need them, this is mainly so that I don't start altering it to the point where the card gets destroyed, in the past I have done this many times.

I have included this card in quite a few challenges, it's always fun doin this

The Challenges I have included-

Catch the bug-Anything goes.
Stamping vacation-No tags.
Pile it on-Bright and breezy.

hope everyone has a good week, and yes I think I am going to stick to my resolution of my Monday night post.
