One Stitch At A Time challenge #117

Its another Sunday, whilst i would love to write about how sunny it is and that its been a warm week... i can't :O(   Its been a cold ,dark and damp week here in Nottingham. The queens diamond jubilee celebrations were somewhat of a wash out. With various events around the country having to be held indoors or sadly cancelled.. Nottingham gets to see abit of Royalty this week when the Queen, Prince Philip , Prince William and Kate visit the city centre as part of the diamond jubilee countrywide tour. So long as it isn't raining i may attempt to pop there and see if i can see royalty in the flesh ;O)

Anyway onto this weeks One Stitch At A Time challenge.. With it being Fathers Day next Sunday.. A card for the man in your life seemed the way to go.. So the funtastic theme this week is
'For the man in your life'   So it can be a creation for your dad, husband, son , brother or just a friend who is a male.

I got to work with an image by Stitchy this week and chose a great one for my dad.. Its called
'The Big One'

and a close up

It was such a fun image to colour.
I used my Promarkers to colour it.. The Design Paper is called Tea Party and the blue card i used for mounting my image was from a set of Hunkeydory card kits that i had left around. The buttons, sentiment and gems were all from my stash... I finished my card with a silver pen for the 'metal' bits. Oh and of course glossy accents on those sunglasses..

Dont forget to stop by the challenge blog and join in the fun.
