Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star ..... Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge #71

I've spent this morning lay on top of the bed with my Dad, just chatting, reading today's newspaper and watching the world pass by out of the bedroom window!  It was nice to spend some "quality" (said loosely) time with him, just the 2 of us.  He says today that he has some pain on his left side.  Now we're not sure if this is the cancer or if its a pulled muscle, from lifting the hose pipe reel and moving stuff in his shed on Saturday .... He wont be told!!!!   He thought it was funny that I was covering my feet up with his dressing gown cos they felt chilled, so we giggled about that and also about the fact that he was wearing a scarf in bed with his pyjamas!  He wanted his gloves but didn't know where they were LOL.

On to this week's challenge, and it's Maggie's turn to give us all a sketch

Feel free to flip, rotate, re-size and add embellishments, as long as we can clearly tell you have followed the sketch.

If you win this week's challenge, you will receive a fabulous prize from our regular sponsors The Stamping Boutique

To enter all you have to do is make a card following the sketch (making sure you include stamping somewhere on your creation - digi's are fine), and post your entry into the linky below. Check out the Rules page above for more information.

The deadline is midnight (UK time) on Saturday 10th September.

Well, I loosely followed the sketch I just didn't have room to fit my sentiment.  I hope my card still qualifies for the challenge but I understand if it doesn't!

... again I had to use one of my babies ... Teddy Bea_033 ...

and once again on the inside of the card ...
