Stamp with fun #122–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  It is the start of a brand new week, and also the start of my 2 week holiday from work *yay*.  We are going away for a few days this week and hopefully whilst we are away we are going to have a new bathroom put in for us, if our builder has finished his current job in time!!  We are only going to Tenby, which is a small seaside town in West Wales, but we love it there and have been many times, especially when the boys were small (you can read about it here in Wikipedia).  Keep your fingers crossed that the weather stays dry for us!!

Onto my card and today we have a brand new challenge over at stamp with fun challenge.  This week we have a brilliant sketch by Andrea-Emmi41 to follow and here is my card:

I have used a super cute image from DigiStamp Boutique called “Tom summer fun” and coloured him with my promarkers.  The papers are my mind’s eye from the ‘true blue’ paper pad.  It’s difficult to see in the picture but I have added some silver sparkly mesh to the left hand side of my card, which I thought looked something like a fishing net!

The rest of the design team have created gorgeous cards as always, so please pop over the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us. 

Whilst I am away I’m not able to access the internet so I can’t link my cards to any challenges, perhaps I’ll see what’s around when I get back on Friday.

I hope you will be able to join in with our sketch challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create.  I’ll be back later with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge but until then thanks for stopping by.
