Congratulations

Good morning everyone hope you are all ok and had a fab weekend!  It was so nice to see some sunshine here in Blackpool yesterday.  I would like to apologise to anyone who may have received a spam e mail from me yesterday.  My account has been hacked and spam e mails have been sent to my contact regarding diet pills, please rest assured I have not resorted to selling diet pills in my retirement.  I have changed my password as advised by the provider, if anyone knows of anything else I should do I would appreciate the advice!

For today's card I have followed another sketch, this time from Sketch Saturday:


Another great sketch to follow!  The image is from Di's Digi Design called Champagne Time - anytime is Champagne Time if you ask me lol!! I have coloured Champagne Charlie with my Copics and Prismas.  The gingham paper is Pink Petticoat and the patterned paper is by Basic Grey called Hello Luscious which I have had a while but I am trying to use some of my paper mountain stash.  I have used a Spellbinders Ribbon Banner for the computer generated sentiment and Spellbinders Edgeabilities for the border.  The banner is made with a MFT Dienamics die and some Bakers Twine from my stash.  I have added Glossy Accents to the glass and bubbles. I have kept the embellishments down as I thought this would be a good male card!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Catered Crop - Banners or Bunting
Two Sisters - Stripes or Plaid
Charisma Cardz - Male Cards
Crop Stop - It's a Celebration
Do You Stack Up - Boys/Men
Forever Friends - Anything Goes
Paper Play - For a Man With Twine
Inky Impressions - Celebration
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

Well that's it from me for today.  I hope that wherever you are you have a great start to your week and you get some sunshine!  Thank you so much for looking and take care xx

So sorry to hear about your hacking problems Susan, there's a lot going on right now in blog land... But please rest assured, I don't think any of your blogging friends would think you'd be selling rubbish ;-)
On to your card now: isn't he a festive bear, looks like he's into a party! (sad to say we're not though, after the soccer defeat last night...) Love the bright colours!
