Owl be trimmin' up a Christmas card

I have so much fun with this stamp set, and I always come up with some weird, crazy ideas.  I guess that's why I bought the set.  We used the Owl Occasions stamp set for our Christmas Stack-A-Stack last weekend, and everyone thought it was pretty cute, and so do I.  So, this time owl is hanging up his stocking.  He's so cute :)
I used Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green for this card, and the printed sock border is from Snow Festival DSP.  The Happy Christmas greeting is from my new More Merry Messages, that has wonderful Christmas messages.  I used one inside the card with a couple of stockings hung there, too. 
This week the challenge at SU- Only Challenge  is to use ANIMALS, and then I saw the Holiday Creature Feature at the
Rockin' Challenge at Jingle Belles is to use a LIVING CREATURE, I knew just what to do.  This is the only creature I could think of, but who needs another one when owl is so fun.  Both of these challenge blogs always have such fun ideas.  I love them!
I found a great layout that was just what I needed for the idea that I had.  However, when I went back to my file to see who's challenge it was I realized that it had no identifying marks.  The only thing I knew was it was number 201 and I had put the final date that submissions were due was October 31.  Hmmm?  That was a stumper! 
I have always saved the sketches and stuff in a picture file, and as I save the picture I also add the final date that submissions have to be linked.  Some sketches have their name or initials on the sketch, but there are a couple that do not, so I am usually careful to add that information in my photo identification box.  This one I missed, which is too bad, for them and for me, because I cannot find their blog, and so I can't play with them today.  It bugged me so much, I went through my entire list of challenge blogs, and opened each one to look, and double check, to see if this could be their sketch.  I never found it, and I really looked thoroughly.  So, if anybody out their recognizes this sketch, let me know where it came from.  It would really just give me peace of mind.  It really drove me crazy!!
Well, I am in Brooklyn, NY for 6 days of family fun.  Today we are celebrating my grandson's first birthday with the Halloween costume party.  We are going to raise a ruckus, and have a good time :)
I hope to get some quiet time to blog for you, too.  So, come back and check in again, soon.  I'll share pictures, too.
