Hope you have a G'day Mate

Today I'm excited to share my very 1st card I have made for the fabulous "Sparkle N Sprinkle'.
I'm sure you will agree with me that this little fella is so cute? I must admit I was a tad nervous at colouring him using my copics because of the fur effect. I just decided to go for it and ended up applying copic on some old terry toweling cloth and dabbing it lightly on the koala. I really like the effect and will try this again.

The stamp is part of a set called Casey's Adventures which you can buy here but you can also purchase individual stamps like Casey here too. The sentiment is also part of the set which I think is fab.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz - Cutesy
Dream Valley - Anything Goes
Craft Challenge - Games/Activities
Thanks for visiting.

Lana, you have captured Casey perfectly! Wouldn't it be fun to watch the boys go fishing on a lazy day, without them knowing we were watching? :-)
