Sketch Saturday

There is a great sketch over on Sketch Saturday and my little WOJ mouse came yesterday so I decided to combine using the cute little mouse with the sketch.

This card is very simple and definitely no flowers as it is for my baby who will be 26 on Wednesday, where does the time go!!
He has come to appreciate my cards over the past year and doesn't think they are a cheap!! option anymore.
I just hope he likes it.

I will be decorating the inside but I wanted to get a picture before the light has gone completely

The papers are BG archaic and just the job for men's cards.
The letters were free on a magazine before Christmas


No you are not seeing things I have decided not to put my Christmas kit away and when I get a sketch I like.. I a going to make a Christmas card and put it away for next year that way I might have enough cards for everyone to have a handmade one !!!
I also had several stamps and papers that didn't see the light of day and if I use them now I won't be tempted by new ones!!

Thanks for looking

Sue :o)

Oh this is so cute Sue, I was laughing at your 'baby' comment, I'll be 40 next year and my mum still calls me 'the wean' so 26 really isn't that bad to still be calling your son your 'baby'. I am also planning on making my Christmas cards thoughout the year and I will be posting them on my blog, I think its a fab idea.x

Rach said...

I love both of the cards , they're gorgeous. What a good idea to make 2 cards, making one of them a Christmas card. I have unused stamps that I bought for this Christmas and didn't use. Think I might do the same ,,,,
