I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date

Hello again peeps

 Have you seen the new collection 'Winnie in Wonderland' at Polkadoodles?
 It is fabulous, and you are going to LUURRVE the papers.

I'll be back tomorrow with a card made with one of the more girly papers, but after spotting the white rabbit with a watch the first thing I wanted to make was a 'Sorry I'm Late' card.

I don't know about you but I am hopeless at sending cards on time, even if I've made them weeks in advance. For some reason I have an aversion to sending them too early, and then before I know it their birthday/anniversary/exam etc. has arrived and their card is still sitting on my craft desk. Oops!

A large batch of these would definitely come in handy :)
So, to make my card I dragged one of the backing papers into CraftArtist (did I mention they are gorgeous?) and then added the black and white version of the white rabbit with a little drop-shadow. With the Smarty Pants font I added the lyrics from "I'm late, I'm late...." which apparently features in the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland, and created the sentiment separately using the same font .

I coloured in the rabbit with Promarkers
Fur: Ice Grey1-3
Waistcoat: Umber and Plum Preserve 
Coat: Walnut, Chestnut, Cinnamon and blender
Watch: Pastel Beige and Mustard

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-

I do wish people wouldn't advertise on blogs !!!!!!! The only good thing is that it's Digichoose day tomorrow, and you can probably guess what I will be buying. I LOVE this rabbit and it would be used well by me because I am late for everything.
Thanks for joining in with our 'Furry
Friends challenge at Passion for Promarkers this week, and good luck

What a fabulous card featuring Alice's white rabbit; 'late for a date' appears to be my theme these days as well! The text: incorporated so beautifully! Thank you for sharing your creativity in the Inkspirational gallery!
