Papertake Weekly...Sketch # 31

Good morning everyone...I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and survived the festivities without too much stress! Our Christmas Day was just the four of us at home...we had a fab day and James & Sophie loved the presents Santa left for them...Boxing Day was spent with Mike's brother and family at our house and what a laugh we had with everyone trying to out-do each other on the Wii was hilarious lol! The house still looks like a disaster movie but there's plenty of time for tidying up but in the meantime we are just enjoying doing nothing!

Todays's card is for this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge and Dawny has come up with a really fab easy sketch to follow and it was perfect for those all important men's cards that we so often need but avoid making! We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week and they are offering a whopping $25 to spend in their store and that's the full amount as they also pay your shipping costs! Pop over to see what the rest of my DT buddies have done using this weeks sketch...there's some fab inspiration if your mojo has gone on its Christmas holidays!

Design Papers : Sweet Shoppe Designs (My Man)
Digi image : Digi Stamp Boutique (Jim Fishing)
Blue Card Stock : SU!
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Embellishments : Card Candy from my craft box
Sentiment : Created on the PC

Hope you enjoy this weeks sketch...Happy New Year to you all :)

Hi Donna, sounds like you had a nice and relaxing Christmas. I love the images you come up with to make your cards. It's always nice to have a variety, isn't it? This fishing guy would be right up my Dad's alley if he were here - he loved to fish. I love the colors and as always your papers are so well coordinated and nice subtle touch with the brads. I love your style - it's so clean cut. :D Any plans for the new year? We'll sit in front of the tube and look for some quiet fun and ship non-alcoholic wine (heehee) - how droll is that? :D Have a good one!
