Sketch Saturday #343

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Simon Says Stamp

I have the cold from Hell.  Seriously - I can't ever remember a worse one.  I am either completely stuffed up so that my head is pounding, my teeth are throbbing and my mouth is permanently open in order to breathe (which makes eating and even talking kind of tricky) or my nose, and astonishingly - my eyes, are streaming like I have a cartoon tap over the bridge of my nose and it's on full burst.   There doesn't seem to be a transition between the two states - I just go from stuffed up to pouring. The Hubster keeps telling me I don't look like me.   Gee - thanks!

Anyway... I used this fun Mo Manning image of The Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz which you can find here.  He is coloured with Copics and teamed with papers from Graphic 45.     I struggled a bit trying to work out how to use my image with Debra's delightfully trendy sketch so I just used it behind my image.  My rather lame sentiment was Wordprocessed.   Forgive me.  I'm sick!
Why not scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us. We'd love to see you join in!
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Finished with a Bow
and of course
Mo's Digital Pencil - Anything Goes

I'm so sorry to hear you have that rotten cold! There's an awful cold and flu going around here and I don't want it.
Your card is smashing! Great image and the tin man is coloured to perfection!

Love this image and so sorry to hear you're sick. I had a cold a bit like that before Christmas and it took over three weeks to go completely! Hope you feel better soon!

Hugs, Vannessa x
