You really measure up

I had this card ready, but just didn't get it posted last week for the Sketch Saturday Challenge. The week was crazy with my BFF's daughter losing her brand new FIL.  My office mate who ruptured her achilles tendon while I had my sinus surgery has been non-weight bearing and then fell and broke a rib.  So she was off due to having pain so I was working extra so it's just been crazy. Later today I will be driving to see my parents and kids.  I plan to take this card that I made for my daughter to use since she is a teacher and wanted some special thank you cards.  It is from Darcie's Stick Together. I have been trying to get quite a few cards done this month.

Lovely card and your daughter will be pleased with such a heap of cards you made for her. Love how this cute owl is looking!
Have a great time with your parents and kids.
I have pity on your office mate. I have had a rupture of my achilles tendon 18 years ago. (But I did not broke a rib).
Enjoy today!
