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

Oh Anne looks like you had a wonderful holiday, I so wish for warm weather here. We're having very frosty mornings and wonderful sunny days I can't wait for summer. Love your card and what great images you put together. Love your card and design papers. Your nephew will love it. Great card and thanks so much for joining us this week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.
