365 Day 69, Tamara 95, A Spoonful of Sugar 52 & Forum Challenge

This card was made using this weeks sketch # 95 over at Sketches! by Tamara. It combines the congratulations theme on our card making forum this week, a celebration theme at A Spoonful of Sugar (another new to me blog) and Day 69 at 365 Cards which was to make a card suitable for a graduation.

The little owl is an image that was sent to me by a forum buddie. There were lots of different owl images and die cuts and this one is a Pink Petticoat Image. He is coloured in with Marvy le Plume pens and layered onto a pice of card which has been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.

The paper is a vellum which I have layered onto white card. I used an offcut and cut out 2 of the mortar boards and a diploma and decoupaged with 3D foam. A scrap of card was inked and rolled up with a small pice of thin ribbon tied around it to make a 3D diploma. The sentiment is a die cut from a Brenda Pinnick kit from QVC.

I've had a night off from the hospital tonight as Paul went up with his Dad so I had a few hours to myself (bliss....) We've got a heavy day tomorrow as Grandad has an appointment at another hospital tomorrow to see a Urologist about his prostate operation. His appointment is at 4.40pm but the hospital transport is taking him at 2pm - goodness knows why they are taking him that early... I'm sure they must arrange it with themselves so they get more car parking charges from you GRRRR we're hoping he will be given a date for his op tomorrow, here's keeping fingers crossed :)
