The Shabby Tea Rooms Challenge Week # 14 and a Card Swap too!

This month our theme over at the Crafty Place that has been set by the fab rainmac is 'animals'.  Rusty kindly and generously sent me a Gruffie image to colour and I just couldn't resist the call of the Promarkers.  I've used a sheet of DCWV Linen Closet and some Kraft card,  Basic Grey buttons, ribbon from my stash and a sentiment I printed myself and mounted on an oval cut from my trusty SU punch.  The sunflower is from the Dollar Store in Canada (I miss those places!)  I hope my swappee likes it.  Jest move over, bear, I wanna take over the hammock!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenge
The Shabby Tea Room Challenge #14 - Summer Fun
