Comfy or what?

That image from Phindy was literally talking to me. As a mother of two smallies, I know all two well a value of a dropped-half-dead anywhere nap, lol.
I coloured the image with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. Reasonably happy with the result. Card itself I'm not entirely sure about but not bad enough to dunk me into oceans of despair and shame, lol.
The sentiment is Shirleys2Girls.


Papers are from Cosmo Cricket, ribbon from Poppicrafts (which is now sadly going out of business), lace and bling from my stash.
I distressed the papers with scissors, used a bit of paper piercing and painted edges slightly with Cosmic Shimmer Angel Red Shimmer Paint. A little flower on top of the knot is a fabric sticker from Papermania.

The sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

I would also like to enter following challenges:
Stampavie and More - Distressing
Quixotic Challenges - Distressing

Don't forget our challenge at Phindy's Place this week. VERY difficult - use your favorite Phindy image. Lets see you try! My head almost exploded!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Hugs
Annika

"Reasonably happy"???? I'm spluttering with outrage here, your colouring is flippin' perfect girl, don't be so tough on yourself LOL! Love those 3 distressed circles under the images and, as ever, all the perfect detail you add.

Adorable card! Reminds me of the time my kids' hamster got loose and I found him curled up inside their doll house sleeping. (We also had four cats at the time.....and surprisingly, none of them sniffed him out....heehee!)
