First of all a big hello and warm welcome to my two new followers-so glad to have you join me!
I hope your week is being good to you so far. It's the lovely school holidays and I'm trying to have a mix of boring old chores and some craft time. It's just typical though that I decided to have the afternoon to myself and get out my crafting bits and when I sat there I just stared at it all and hadn't a clue what to do!!! This card ended up about three different layouts and two different colour schemes before I settled on this one and even then I'm not entirely happy-don't know if I just wasn't in the mood. I did manage to nearly finish my mum's Mothers day card though and am kind of pleased with that at least-will try to get that finished on Thursday!!
So, this card is for my Uncle and I used an image I've had for ages from the Digistamp Boutique-don't you find there are so few images for older men?? I spent ages the other day trying to find some on some of the digi websites but they all seemed geared to youngsters!!
I decided to follow a sketch I'd seen on the Friday Sketch blog the other day -I printed him out a little larger than I usually do and coloured him with my promarkers. I used an ancient paper pad from Lakeland which doesn't even sell craft bits any more unfortunately and corrugated the strips at the side. I printed out a newspaper image and stamped out a circle sentiment and added some print card candy.
I would like to enter him into the following challenges:
Friday Sketch challenge 37 - Sketch by Christine
Tuesday Throwdown challenge 135 - Monochrome
Here Come the Boys challenge 46 - Lots of Layers

Well I hope you enjoy the rest of the week and that the sun keeps shining wherever you are. Thanks so much for popping in and until next time.
