Swing When You're Winning...

I managed to grab a little crafting time yesterday and used one of the images I won at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge recently. I just love this little guy. It was such a treat to be able to pick this stamp out as part of my prize...

Copics and Prismacolour Pencils were my weapons of choice for colouring.

The sentiment was definitely my inspiration for the card and I think it goes really well with the image. As you can see there's lots of my wibbly sewing too... More practise needed I think...

I thought I'd show you the inside of this card for a change. Not super-exciting, I know, but I really liked the Basic Grey paper I used for the Sentiment. I'll be able to write my message neatly on it and I think it contrasts nicely with the gorgeous Teresa Collins papers I used on the rest of the card.

As it happens, the current theme at A Gem of a Challenge is Animals so I'd like to enter this card.

Right, enough lollygagging for one day. Thanks for dropping by.
