This is so sweet. I love the fabulous bear image.. I think it is perfect for this sketch.. I would have a tough time with all those little squares. Great job.

Benzi this is just awesome. That bear is melting my heart. He just looks like he is hand drawn. I love how much he looks vintage. What a beautiful card so excellently crafted. Great job with the sketch! Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

I have it on my hutch in my kitchen with the other cards I received for my Birthday. It gives me such a warm feeling to walk by and see only my pretty cards! Thank you for the cute images and the little stickers and things....I just was so touched and blessed by your generosity. Thank you so much for making my Birthday special!
