2 Sketches4You - Sketch 16

It's great to be back in the world of challenges again......and the sketch this week on 2 Sketches4You is from Laura..... and fabby cards as always from Laura and the DT........I needed to make a birthday card last night for my BIL who is celebrating a rather special birthday today....yes skidding in by the seat of my pants once again...but I have an excuse...hubby was beavering away at the shelving in my cubbyhole and it took me ages to find the stash I needed.
Luckily my latest purchase was on top of one of the boxes and it's perfect for male cards but you must excuse the strange angle of the pic......only way I could get a half decent one without picking up lots of glare.
Papers: Basic Grey Granola Collection
Hearts cut with Cricut George & Basic Shapes
Alphabet: Scrabble Letters
Numbers: American Crafts Thickers
Hope to be back later with pics of the finished shelving.....hubby's job is done....it's just a case of me getting everything back in place.....and that bit is always a nightmare.....
BUT....before I go dashing off to deliver said card and pressie ......special Birthday Hugs & Kisses for the one and only QUEEN of CRAFT...the gorgeous TERRIE B.....naughty...naughty...girl....kept that one a bit of a secret...didn't you Mrs B.  Hope you had a lovely day Terrie with all your family.
Catch up with you all later....Hugs Kath xxxxxx
