A blokes card!

Hi blogworld

Apologies for the lateness of this post - I went back to my exercise class this morning and completely forgot to schedule this post so now I'm bringing to the fore my super speedy typing skills to get it done asap!

So I'm still GDT for Papertake Weekly and this week it's a Sketchie Free For All - you can either use this week's sketch or pick one from the back catalogue, but please say which sketch it is if you pick an older one.

As always there is a fab prize on offer and amazing DT inspiration.

I used this week's sketch:

and this is what I made (it even went to someone!  It was hubby's dads birthday last Sat - 89 years young!  Not bad!):

I used:

Digi image:
This is just an image I found on the internet - so no stamping or digi stamping, I flipped it, changed the colour scheme, inked the edges and voila!
I also created the sentiment on my computer.

Nestie for the sentiment

Papermania - Hampstead

Anything else?
Ribbon and Distress Ink

Vroom, all done!

Fab male card, Sarah! Love the old penny farthing image and rich colour tones!
Hope everything's starting to get back to normal after the Easter hols - my little man went back today, so I spent a day shopping with my Mum. I'll be glad once I can get back into a routine though as I feel as though I've been chasing my tail for the last fortnight! My eldest has his GCSEs this term...scary! Not only for him, but for me at the fact that he's old enough! Hugs, Lisa x
