We'll Owl Miss You

Hi All!  Ah, the end of a busy weekend and an even busier work week ahead...it really does seem like the weekends fly by and Sunday night I'm left wondering if there was some breakdown in the time space continuum because even though those around me swear there were two whole days there I'm not totally convinced :)  Anyhoo, enough babbling- on to the card...lol!  Again at work we're faced with someone moving on to greener pastures and I've offered to make a card...this particular co-worker loves owls, and has ordered owl specific cards from me before, so I definitely had a direction to go in from the start.  Since I've used most of my owl things for her already I did need to find a new image so I went to Etsy to see if I could find anything new and came across 2Cute Rubber Stamps and this adorable owl image which I snapped up in digi form.  He was so much fun to color- I just love his glasses!  Once I had him done I set to work with the August sketch over at Graphicat Sketch Challenge and the card came together pretty easily.  The sentiment is my own printed on my computer- it's kind of corny but I couldn't resist the play on words :)  Hope you enjoy it as much as I think she will!
