Hambo Lion, take 2

Lesson for me...read the fine print twice, maybe three times. I didn't see that I was supposed to use strips and the sentiment as is for this Hambo challenge...oops. I'm lucky that I was made aware of my boo boo so I had time to correct it and resubmit for the next challenge image. Thanks! So luckily I like the image so much that I had already colored several of them. I just popped this on the correct background and viola! Not my best card, but I'm distracted today, thinking and worrying over my Dad.

Thanks Sandy for all the hard work you do for our Heroes!  You inspire me and many, many others!
