Lazy Afternoon

Saturday 16 August 2014

Two men's cards in a row. Last week: my Grandad, this week: my hubby's Grandad. I usually make my cards quite far in advance but this one I left right until the last minute and managed to get my creation uploaded only just in time - very unlike me! I didn't know what image to use so, after considering many, finally settled on Lazy Afternoon by Lili of the Valley, a gorgeous image that until the other day hadn't seen any ink. I went for manly colours, added a few interesting bits of trim and a huge wooden button and called it done. But then I felt the need to add sparkle, so went for a few gems and even some glitter - manly brown glitter of course.

This week's Sketch Saturday Sketch is sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts and they have a great prize on offer so head on over to be in with a chance of winning.

Happy scrapping x
