A sketch challenge and a story...

I made this card for 2 Sketches For You again, just love their weekly sketches! But also made it to give to my DH. Now there's a story behind this card too. Loooong time ago (25 yrs.) when we first got together, I moved to AZ with him...my first time to leave home. BIG move for me. I was missing my family and TX ALOT, and one night he came home late from work, I was mad at him but he just HAD to show me something. So we drove to this little park area, and there was this brick wall where everybody had wrote graffiti on it...and lo and behold he had wrote mine and his initials like this, with hearts, and the x' and o's, and the 4/ever thing....rofl. One of the x's and o'x didnt have an 'o' after it...he said he heard something and it spooked him off, thought it was a person, but it was actually an owl he found out, going 'whhoooo'...LMAO! He's no artist, but at that time I thought it one of the sweetest things anybody had ever done for me! LMAO! Sooooo, I did this for him...its suppose to look like a brick wall with graffiti, lol. I dont think he will mind the black ribbon, even though its for a man...lol.

Card Details:
Stamps: Owl is by Inkadinkado,sentiment is from Owl Always Love You from Gina K Designshearts and others from Technique Tuesday and clear stamps they sell at Wal-mart
Papers: all cardstock from M's except for the white, its from PTI
Accessories: ribbon from M's, oval scallop punch, a clay texture plate to create brick wall, (used a rolling pin, then swiped with black ink), copic markers, red ink from SU!, heart chipboard, pop dots.

SS for no card yesterday. I had what is called an 'eye migraine'. Yep, been diagnosed with those. Basically a migraine but in my eye. It's very painful and it affects the vision of the eye that it is in..so didnt want to strain it and make it hurt worse.

Thanks for taking the time to look!

this is great, Cat!! I love your card and that was a sweet gesture of your DH! I totally can relate to that moving away from family thing (I did it too) and DH was the same way but he didn't ever write graffiti on a wall for me. HA!
