Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - My Sketch

The holiday season is sadly at an end. My little boy started school again today and I'm going to be busy taking down the decorations. I don't like taking them down, everywhere looks so bare!! It will be nice to give my ears a bit of a break though LOL only one child chattering at me all day :)! It is time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy challenge and this fortnight we have a sketch by me!! I have a few birthdays in January which is good as it is nice to actually have a purpose for my cards!! This one is for my Father in Law's birthday. The papers are a mix from my scraps of basic grey and MME.

I couldn't resist using the cute Ben from Whiff of Joy again, he is so perfect for male birthday cards I think!! I've coloured him with copics of course.

I added some glossy accents to his glass!

The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy's drinks sentiments set and the leaves and swirls die cuts are Whiff of Joy too!! The gorgeous border punch on the brown paper is also from Whiff of Joy. Katharina is bringing out such gorgeous dies! I feel very lucky to be part of the team and getting to play with them all!! Have you seen the new release??? I am eagerly awaiting my DT kit which I'm hoping may come today so that I can start showing you all the gorgeous new Valentine images and dies!

Hope you like it and can join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy. Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations!! We are also having monthly guest designers and are joined by the fabulous Kristy Young during January! Thanks for looking! x

I always have mixed feelings at this time of year too Jane, the quiet and tidiness is lovely but I always miss the kids being home and of course the magical sparkle that only christmas decorations can provide, great card by the way, I am always in search of ideas for male cards lol xxx
