'Wildlife Aid'

Morning fellow bloggers I hope you are all ok on this Saturday morning. As most of you know, we spend our weekends volunteering at the local wildlife rescue centre 'Gentleshaw' well my gorgeous friend Tamara (The Stamping Chef) surprised me with a fantastic image she had drawn just for me called ...'Wildlife Aid' its me with my skunk & a bunnie rabbit! I just love it & wanted to say a huge Thank You to Tamara, You are an absolute darling xxx

Anyhoos I used the fab image for my creation over at My Time To Craft this week. Where the challenge is..


I loved making this card, colouring the image was a dream. I decided to go back to the days when we had Polaroid photos.
