Last minute card

Why do my family always think I have plenty of cards that fit the brief just sitting around waiting to be sent.This was the case last night.

Daughter: Mum, have you got a card with a koala or kangaroo on for me to have tonight?
Me: no why?
Daughter: I'm going to a friend's farewell party and I need it for 8pm tonight
Daughter: If you haven't you got one could you make me one please?

Of course this is when I should have said "No" but of course I didn't and set about making one. tee hee.

I did all this with Copic Sketch markers and tried a technique using an old flannel to add texture to make fur.  Of course I took the photo just before 7pm and the light was pretty bad and you can't see any of that sorry. 

All used on this card.
