Hello!




Welcome to 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday sponsored by Art Glitter!!!!!

Seriously, who doesn't love to work with glitter?! I absolutely LOVE the stuff. Here's the thing with Art Glitter...they have rockin' colors AND the most FABulous adhesive! The adhesive comes with a ultrafine metal tip that makes it super easy to use for detail areas...

I couldn't resist my favorite Hero Arts Owl. I wanted to glitter up her belly...just the perfect amount of glitter :) All the pattern paper that I used is Basic Grey Ambrosia, the owl is actually stamped on Speckletone Kraft. I hope that you join me in playing along with us on Super Sketchy Sunday!!!

Did you know that I love owls??? Check out what my SWEET kidlets made for my birthday:

Okay, check out that sweet clay owlie that my daughter made and THEN she even photog'd and framed it for me....SWEET!!!!
My boy made me this sweet card {check out his fussy cutting!!} and check out the canvas he did for me:

Yes, I know...
I'm one LUCKY Momma to have the kids that I have...I'll be honest with you, I cried...it was beyond sweet of them to have taken the time to make me owlies! I love that they both have such great creative souls...this has been one spectacular birthday...the best ever :)

  7. Amazing how creative your kids are. They take after their mother but I am stunned with what they created for you. Your son's card could easily enter a challenge as well as the canvas and your daughters clay owl is absolutely great. 3D is the most difficult I think.
    Anyway, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Amy, happy birthday to you.
    Did you cover your ears already? Enjoy your birthday sketchy girl.
