Thoughts and Challenges

Do you ever watch that show Storage Wars?  It's basically a reality show where abandoned storage units are auctioned off - although I do enjoy watching the show, I can't help but feel badly for the people whose belongings are being sold to the highest bidder.  I always wonder if they are watching the show.... I mean, let's face it, most people don't just abandon their stuff willingly.  I'm sure they had tragedies and unforeseen circumstances in their lives... I could never profit off of stuff like that, I just wouldn't be able to sleep at night.  Maybe I'm a big old sucker, maybe I think too much, I don't know, it just doesn't seem right.  Anyway - on to the art!

First up is my card for:


I used the adorable Miss Evie Flowers, paired with some Christmas papers and colored to match.  Cardstock and DP are from Stampin' Up!  "merry xmas" stamp is from The Greeting Farm.  

Next up is my card for the new sketch this month at:

The Prickley Pear Challenge

 I used the set that I won from their challenge last month - Build an Owl - I LOVE this set.  My cardstock and DP are from Stampin' Up!  I used white Fun Flock on the owl.  I love the way this one came out.

And last for today - I wanted to share my art journal pages with you for this week's:
TGF Heart Journaling - Week 13 - Lucky Number

I am totally addicted to Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" - I have read the entire story - which is 7 books - three times already.  The number 19 is significant in this story and I based my journal pages on this.  So do I have any Dark Tower fans in my audience out there?  :)
