OK ,, now for my card :-) I decided to follow Dawny's first sketch challenge( more or less !! )





A dear friend is in hospital at the moment and I made this card for her, she hasn't got a poorly ear or leg tho lol :-)



I love this Cast of Characters stamp and as I had never inked it I really wanted to use this one for my friend. She was in charge of the local SPCA until very recently so I thought she would appreciate a few little furry friends :-)I coloured the image with Copics and the papers are Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby papers. The flowers are Prima and the beautiful rose in the center is from Wild Orchid Crafts , the gorgeous ribbon is from there too :-)



From here you need to go to the lovely NANCY'S BLOG and see what lovely creation she has made for your inspiration :-)

Challenges :
Creative Inspiration ,,,, Get Well Soon
2 Sisters ,,,,, Animal Fun
