Friday Sketches

I hope your all having a good Monday, I've been off work today so i done a bit of housework and than some crafting, i needed to make a card for Kev's fishin mate and had no inspiration at all so looked for a challenge to help me and i found Friday Sketches and thought that's just what i need. I rotated the sketch i must admit i think it's a bit flat (not the sketch my card) but it'll have to do.

Papers are from the masculine set from dovecraft, i think, the image is another of Mo's fab one's coloured with prisma's, i love it, when i have done a fishing themed card in the past i always thought that they looked a bit childish but not any more the image is perfect.

Morning all, it's a lovely day here, the sun is out and its really warm. Makes a nice change its a pity I've got to go to work this afternoon, oh well needs must( i have my eye on some new stamps i want, gotta pay for them some how).

When i saw the sketch on Stampin for the weekend i panicked at first then took a minute or two and decided to make a wedding card for a friend in work. i used in my minds eye wild asparagus papers which i love, never coloured the images in too much i don't think they needed it, i used pro markers for the bits i did colour. I'll be back later on with my just magnolia card for this week.
