Sentimental Sundays "ANYTHING GOES" Party

Good morning everyone-
A brand new, wow!!!
Did party like rock stars last night? LOL!!  We didn't, we stayed home with the boys....ate dinner, had some sweets and played some board games all NIGHT!!! It was the kind of mellow fun we needed after our long weekend of birthday celebrations and Christmas!!!  Whew!!! I am really glad it's all over!!! :0)

Now, for the day we have all been waiting for!!!
The return of Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog!!!  WhooHOOO!
We had a LONG and exciting break!!
Did you see the new blog yet?
You have to go check it out....IT's GORGEOUS!!!
Did you see all the new faces?
There are now 18 members on the team!!! Some of them are oldies like ME!!! And a big scoop of newbies!!These gals are bound to knock your socks off with their amazing creativity!!  You just have to check them out!!  And did you see all those sponsors?!!?!?!
This is some PARTY, right?!?!?

Well let's keep the ball rolling, shall we....
You should have arrived here from Archana's blog. If you didn't arrive from her blog and would like to join in the hop, please start at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.

For my card today, I used Clown Owls in Car by Pink Cat Studio.
The card itself is very simple, because I got lost in coloring this image and I couldn't find the right patterned paper in my stash that would work well.  I do LOVE the way it turned out though, it's bright and cheerful and PERFECT for this day/occasion!!

AND......I have a bit of candy to giveaway!!!
Check this out!!!
Now whatcha think about that!!! Pretty nice right?!?!?!
Thank you, thank you!!  :)
