Friday Sketchers Emergency Card

Well after a busy week with wedding orders, a Stampin Up workshop and a Card class and then Fathers Day yesterday its my Husbands birthday today too!!!
I had made 2 Fathers Day cards, one for my Dad and one for Robin from the boys and a card for Robin for his birthday from the boys but at 3.30pm today I realised I hadnt made a card from me!!! Ooooppps! So at 4pm I made this one!! I followed the Friday sketchers challenge and used my Junior Varsity papers to lead the way with the colours!
I timed myself and I made it in 21 minutes!!!!!! Not bad really, the sketches really help and the fact the Stampin Up products are so much geared to help with the colour co-oridination!

Anyway he seemed to like it, you know what men are like with compliments!!!!!!! But I have to say he has his cards on the fireplace and the shop bought ones do look so pants compared to the hand made variety!!

So thanks Friday Sketchers for coming to my rescue!

    My husband is hopeless for cards. I just dont make him any! On his instruction I might add. He says "Kid don't bother I'm only gonna chuck it straight in the bin" well thats gratitude hehe
