Hope you are all well.
I have had quite a productive Bank Holiday weekend. The weather has not been terribly good though.
On Saturday we had several thunderstorms and lots of rain. I spent the day catching up on on a few jobs and did get some cards made. Most of them were DT work so can't share at the moment.
On Sunday we had a quiet day. I think both hubby and I needed it as we did go out with some friends on Saturday night. We had a really good night out but overdid it on the drinkies a little bit lol.
Then today me and my Mum went along to Sir Stampalot. They were holding one of their demo days. Love popping along to these as I love watching other people creating. It was also an opportunity to start picking up some of my christmas crafty supplies. Not that I really need any as have lots of stash already. But there are always a few things that leap off the shelves into my basket. While we were at Sir Stampalot my hubby cooked a nice roast dinner for us all. It was yummy. So now I am just ending my extended weekend by doing a little hopping around Blogland.
Anyway, I did get a card done yesterday for my nephews birthday in September. He is going to be 14 which can be quite an awkward age when it comes to making a card.
Here is what I came up with using a super Mo Manning digi image called Paul Typing.
I wanted to do something a bit different with the image so went for an uncoloured look. I printed it onto some coloured paper, distressed and inked the edges and mounted it onto some black cardstock. I then added some faux stitching using a white pen. The papers were from Wild Rose Studio (Man about Town paper pack). The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards I ruched some black ribbon and added some card candy to the corners. I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday challenge blog but did rotate it to suit.
Would love to know what you all think to the uncoloured look. I quite like it and think it suits a teenage card.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for popping by and take care.
