It's Time For A Sketch!

Hi di hi campers! 
Yee Ha!
Time for another sketch challenge over at Dude Time Doodles!
Here's what I came up with!

Here's the sketch!

A nice simple one to follow & embellish as you see fit this week!
I kept my card fairly simple! So not too much to say for myself on this one! 
Did I hear you say Phew? lol!
The image I used is Eskimo Joe available from the fab
He looks more than a tad unhappy as he's looking for his car!
 But it ain't the one he's just dug out!!!!

I'm soo loving colouring up these guys & seeing them come to life before my eyes! lol
Joe was coloured up with my trusty Promarkers & then cut out with a square nestie.
I used a Sakura Clear Star pen to mske the snowflakes sparkle!
I used a gold A6 card blank, an A5 sheet of green handmade paper & 
an A5 sheet of DP from the Skiing Penguin Party set at Scrapbookingmad
 I also generated a sentiment on my pc!
The font I used is Frosty & you can download it for free here!

I added an Anita's Dimensions Christmas tree sticker

I decorated the inside with the DP & handmade paper & 
I added a white panel to write on!
Yay! That's another Christmas card under my belt! 
I think that makes a grand total of 3 so far! ROFL!
Hope you get the time to join us!

You will have one week to flip the Sketch, twist the Sketch, 
work the Sketch and submit the Sketch.
You are not required to use Bonibleaux Designs image although 
it would make us really really happy and giggle a lot if you did!
MUST be a masculine themed card, you can use humor, innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic, 
but it has got to be for a DUDE!

Simples huh!
Bonibleaux Designs is offering the winner's their choice of a BDD image from 
Don't forget to check out the other DT members fab creations!
