Happy New Year!

There is so much to look forward to this year!  In March I'll be attending the National Wildlife Rehabilitators Symposium in Tennessee.  MIL has just about booked our beach vacation in August.  But most of all, I'm going to South Africa!  I am soooooooo very excited! I applied for a grant offered by the Zoo to all keepers to do conservation work.  I'll be working with Old World Vultures with Vulture Conservation Programme (check them out here: VulPro).  Although I've been to Africa twice before, this will be my first time alone, and not strictly as a tourist.

Since it's January, ODBD posted its challenge on OWH and this months challenge is Stripes.  I took a bit of liberty w/ the stripes by creating them with 3 strips of scrap paper.  My inspiration came from Jana Millen's card.

 Here's my card:

Dies: Simon Says Stamps Pointed Feathers
Paper: My Minds Eye Darling Dear
Ink: Distress Ink Iced Spruce, Versacolor Scarlet
Embelishments: MME Smile Enamel Dots, Sekura Glaze Pen

The Owl
