I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

'Owl' always 'swan' to dance with you!!!!

Bwahahahahahahahaha !! How cute is that title...its describes all three of the challenges I have today. Yep, I said three. The first one is a Whimsy Stamps Challenge Blog card.....and the challenge is 'birthdays'. How simple is that....make a card with a birthday theme. That cute owl is eyeing those cupcakes, what a hoot !!!!

Now the next one is a Squigglefly challenge. This can be a simple or hard challenge, depending on how you look at it. You have to make a one layer card and use only one embellishment. 'Swanna' try it!!!!

Last, but definately not least is a sketch challenge from MyGrafico. I have a hard time with sketches myself. I like to go with the flow and work around the image or I may have something in mind already. So, when I have to follow a diagram of sorts I have to think about it more. But, I would say, all in all I did OK.

You get the title now....I know....I'm plum silly. Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!! Dance on over to all three blogs and check out what all the rest of the DT's did and do a challenge or two yourself.
'Owl' bet you'll 'swan't have a mis-step!!!

Until later, 'Owl' my Dancin' 'Swans'...Gotta split....TFL !!!!

I'm with you and sketches. I find them surprisingly hard to do. I love the images that you have chosen for your challenges though. All the cards are lovely.

I can't decide if I'm more impressed with your cards or all the ways you used the words "owl" and "swan"! LOL!
Truly though, all of your cards are great! The background on your one layer card is so magnificent that you don't realize it's a one layer card! I really like how you colored the skirt on the little dancer, and the owl eyes are a "hoot"!

Sure you made the one layer card look easy *LOL* Great job.

Very cute:D I especially like your swan. I agree with sketches -- difficult compared to just letting your imagination flow with the image.
