Hi Julie~

How fun to be a part of so many great give-aways! Your card is fantastic. I love your coloring! My mother used to collect owls, so your card would represent my family like the Partridge Family used to show their family with the colorful birds! lol How great! Seriously, it is a wonderful take from the owl you were shown.

Thanks for having such a generous give-away!
