Sat at the Unscripted blog

There is a new sketch at the Unscripted Sketches blog and this is the week for the "piggy back" challenge.  I used "grumpy koala" from the Stampotique store = another new image from  the Sept release.
The "piggy back" at the US blog is to actually use your card...they have listed some sites you can go to for info and I picked "Card Cupids" .   Card Cupids with the help of numerous volunteers, provides Card Cuddle Care Packages to countless children in hospitals, foster care, homeless shelters as well as children facing difficulties regardless of their economic background.  Sounds like a great plan to me .  I started inking thru a crafters workshop stencil for my background and then I stamped over that with some random number stamps. Grumpy Koala is colored with Copics and cut out.  I finished with some washi tapes, a computer generated generic "hello" (so they can use how they need to) and some crazy stitching around it and the border punched loop from a book page.
I am also entering in the following challenges:  "things that make you go awwwww" = papertake weekly challenge blog,   Drunken Stampers (they crack me up with that name! lol )= use washi tape!,  
Use it Tuesday= anything goes, I hoard washi tape so I have used it! :) 
Raise the bar challenge blog= things with wings= this grumpy koala has two little birdies on his head!
   Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
