Just Inklined To Hop - Animals

Good morning all,
It's time for this month's Just Inklined Blog Hop!

Our host this time is the lovely Gaynor who has chosen the theme
Not quite sure if this was what she had in mind, but I just had to use him!
If you're already hopping, you'll have landed here from
Gaynor's Blog where I'm sure there was something amazing to see!

I've made a birthday card for a man!
The image I have used  is Poncho Polar Bear 
who is absolutely free at the moment over at 
don't forget to check out all the other fantastic images available too!
Now, if you're in a rush to move on, your next stop is 
the super talented Nicole who I'm sure will astound you!
Don't forget we always have a mystery host with a spot prize along the way,
so don't forget to omment at each stop! 
If you want to know a little more about my card, read on!

Here's a closer look at Poncho chilling on his lounger at the beach!
I've use promarkers to colour him & I've given him a Tequila Sunrise!

The papers I have used are from Papermania, I've had them in my stash forever! 
I've hadn't used them in ages so I rooted them out & have
 been using them up so I can make room for more! lol
The little arrows are cut from one of the sheets & I've popped them up on a 
little bit of shaker tape for a bit of dimension! 
The sentiments are also partly popped up on a bit of foam tape.
I've decorated the inside too! 
Now, if you need a reminder, your next stop is Nicole
Here is the order of the hop incase you need it!
It is a bit shorter than normal so you should be fine! 
Dawn (that's me!)
Have fun hopping!
