Having the hump

The title of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 post for this week is Sweet sketch Hump Day. I hope I don't have too much of the hump when I go back to work tomorrow after 2 lovely weeks in Italy. I am sure I will miss the almost daily gelato and occasional siesta.

Here's a picture of the lovely Villa Balbianello, used as the private clinic in the James Bond film Casino Royale, no sign of Daniel Craig though.

So this is this weeks sketch

and this is my card

It is for Martins nephew who has a birthday next weekend and I knew I would have it to make when we got back. I have a few male birthdays coming up so I am hoping that the male card inspiration is in better evidence than it was before we went away.

For the main image I have combined a couple of stamps that were free in a magazine once, I did a bit of masking and then coloured with my Copics. The papers are My Minds Eye On the Bright side, twine and black card is American Crafts and the brads have been in my box so long I can't remember where they came from.

Thank you as always for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to take the time to leave

Blossoms and birds

It's been a busy few days in our house, added to by the need to go and watch 200 men in lycra whiz past in about 2 minutes as the Tour de France came to Yorkshire,

 but it was worth the four hour wait and the 4 mile walk home.

So eventually I have got around to this weeks challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday

This is the sketch

and here is my card

Papers and image are Lili of the Valley
Cherry Blossoms are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Quite clean and simple, I hope you like it.
