Quickie Birthday card

Hello Blogland!

It's been forever since I got to sit down and make a card.  I've been away from home and couldn't take my craft table with me..sob.  But I'm back now and could not wait another moment to play....even though I sort of don't have much time.  So I very quickly put together this little card.

It's been over 2 weeks since I've crafted and tonight just jumped right in with my copics and coloured this cute little bear without warming up.  As you can see, the colouring is a little shonky.  But I had to do it.  Was getting withdrawal symptoms.  The image is from Crafty Sentiment Designs.  I was so strapped for time that I didn't even print out a proper birthday sentiment for my card and just wrote it in freehand.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.  I promise to sit down and spend a little more time on my next card and post.
