Sketch Saturday - Handbag for a Man?!

Saturday 16 March 2013

Morning morning!

As always we have another awesome sketch for you this week over at Sketch Saturday:
and here is what I came up with for my DT entry. Slightly random I know, a card featuring a handbag and a needle & thread for a man?!  My mum actually commissioned me to make this card for my Uncle Vic. For a living he makes high end ladies handbags all by hand so off I went to find the perfect images to suit! I think I just about managed it and I even added a bit of faux stitching around the circle too. Hopefully he'll appreciate it rather than groan - I would have thought he'd be sick of sewing needles and handbags myself but that's what my mum wanted so that's what she got!

This week's Sketch Saturday sketch is sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts who are offering a fab prize so make sure you pop on over and join in!

I'm scrapping today - have a great crafty day yourself!


  1. This is a really great card... I love the papers, so many wonderful designs... and the images are really great coloured!

  2. Love this Niki! It must have been so hard to make a 'bag' card for a man but you've pulled it off hun! :)

  3. I have to say that I thought the imagery was slightly odd for a man when I first saw your card on the challenge site but now I get it and it couldn't be more perfect. Fab paper choices and lovely colouring Niki! Hugs, Lesley
