This challenge came just in time






hi everyone,

it's Sunday night already, I have had a productive weekend. Yesterday I got rid off anything I didn't need from my over crowded very small cupboard. I am forever dreaming of the walk in closet but until then I have to make do with the small or more so tiny cupboard that I have and that means keeping my clothes to a minimum, I now only have what I actually need and this has made things alot simpler and tidier for me.

 On Friday night my husband and I went to see a movie called Get Low which stars one of my favourite actors being Robert Duvall and the rest of the cast is great as well. I am really surprised that this movie hasn't done better in the box office as it is fantastic and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good movies. After the movie we went to the VIVID  ligt festival which is all around Sydney city. Alot of the highrise  buildings including the Opera House is lit up with beautiful patterns and there are light instillations all over the city as well. I will be going for the festival again and will take some photo's to post in the "check this out" section of my blog. I just want to show off what a gorgeous city Sydney really is :). Today I spent a nice day with my my husband and parents. I am doing some long hours at work in the coming week so I am happy that I had a nice weekend before the hard slog.

Anyway, my good friend is graduating very soon from her University course which seemed to go on forever. She has been buying my cards for sometime and so I am sure she wouldn't forgive me if I hadn't made her this card to celebrate this special and long awaited occassion. The owl image was scanned from a graduation party invitation that I got some time ago, I am not sure where the image was orginally from but I loved it and had to use it on this card, no stealing of images or anything intended. I paper pieced the owl and book, added some bling just before the tassel and I just had to add the googly eyes as I am a big kid, the sentiment was printed on my PC.

The Challenges I have included-
CAS-ual Fridays-Graduation
TPV-School

I have made another card as well but too tired now to post it so will do it tomorrow. Hope everyone has a nice Monday and a good week :)
