Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 20

Good morning to all my crafty friends...only two more days at work for me this week and then I have a couple of days off with my ever so gorgeous children...I can't wait to fit in some crafting too lol!

This card is for the current Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge...a fab sketch which was just perfect for a retirement card (for a Policeman) I was asked to make and this card is A4 in size which is so difficult to photograph because of its size and even more so when its blowing a gale in the garden...I gave up in the end and took the photo indoors lol!

Here is the recipe for my card...
Image : Sourced from Google Images
Design Papers : Freebie Download by Twoboyz00 Designs and the collection is called
#1 Dad
Embellies : Card Candy and Buttons from my stash
Sentiment : Created on the PC

I'll be back at lunchtime with my card for this weeks PTW challenge!

Great card Donna - made me smile. I've never made an A4 card and find the idea quite daunting but you've made a wonderful job of this one.

Good morning Donna! You know you are so crafty and ingenious too! I love that image and you found in on Google - I never would have thought to look there. This image is incredibly cute and perfect for a retired police officer. He/she should get a good laugh from it. I know this person would appreciate the brads and buttons placement too. Great papers and love the scalloped edges. I'm glad you will have some days off to relax and be with your little ones; plus you get to craft a little more! :) How fun!
