Thank You at Crafty Catz

Good morning well last day for the children at school a full week off. I have jobs to do at home but hoping to get some crafting done need get some Christmas cards done.
Well today being Friday it is time for a new challenge and this week it is the lovely talented Anna's turn to host. So hope you will join us again. I loved all your Black plus one cards last week and if you entered pop along and checkout the winners and top three fab creations.
Well Anna has chosen a fab challenge
Yes we all need some of these in our card box so why not come and join us.
Our sponsor this week is the fab company MEI FLOWER CRAFT with a £20 prize
So onto my card for your inspiration. I will explain the sentiment as it looks a little strange. A neighbour had just finished Radiotherapy . He asked if i could do a nurse with a chicken on a plate with the sentiment. I immediately thought of this fab image from Bugaboo. Sentiment is computer generated. DP is from a scrapbooking kit. Ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and i have done it in the style of their charity. . Image has been coloured with my promarkers.

Hope you like and yes the nurses did get the joke of the cooked chicken. Thanks for popping by and dont forget to pop along and see what the rest of the team has made.
Have a great weekend
