A quick one!


Hi everyone,

I was asked to make a card at the last minute for someone who is leaving work to have a baby.

Well I don't have any of the stamps I needed, so here is another hand-drawn effort, obviously based on the Magnolia characters...I tried to make it look like a pregnant lady....not sure it works, but hey ho!!!

I have used a layout I saw on Bev's blog which I liked and seemed to fit this A5 size card.....I'm so used to square ones now, I didn't know what to do....thanks BEV!

The papers and the flowers and the ribbon are what I won on aSfOs, aren't they gorgeous, everything coloured with promarkers.

Just a quick post as I have to go to work in an hour :( ......... don't forget to pop back tomorrow as it's Sketch Saturday

have a lovely day, thanks for stopping by

This is gorgeous and I am sure the recipient is going to be chaffed with it. Cannot believe how beautiful you draw. You should disregard all stamps and keep on drawing. Warm regards
