Cards In Envy - Sketch Challenge #3

Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!  We sure did, lots of chocolate, lots of laughs including a couple this morning for April's Fools Day.  Did you pull any pranks today?

"A" was every few seconds trying to be funny in the name of April's Fool, so much so that it became rather annoying and his jokes/pranks were getting pretty lame, that my husband  and I decided to pull one good prank on him each.  The first one involved pretending there was a spider ('A' hates all types of bugs/insects) in his bedroom which resulted in Rod pulling his already made bed apart, to catch it..........the joke was he would have to remake his bed which is a job he hates, whilst the second joke involved placing a rubber snake in the car where he sits, as we had to drive his sister home today as she had spent Easter with us.  "A" usually is the first one to jump in the car.......the squeal and look on his face was priceless.  Needless to say the first part of our trip was rather quiet....lol.

So today sees a new challenge, a new sketch challenge over at Cards In Envy and I do hope you will play along.




My design was inspired by the three star-burst elements on the sketch and would be perfect for a Male Birthday.  The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co and this card would have been suitable for last weeks challenge also, as instead of ribbon I have used a strip of paper which I have pleated and distressed with some white ink.

For more great inspiration using this sketch be sure to pop over to the Cards in Envy Site which is where you can link up your card if you play along too!

Lol now you will have to keep on the lookout for a few payback tricks and kids can find real messy ones. Sounds like you had a few good laughs. :) Great card for this challenge. Very masculine and festive. Great take on the sketch. Wonderful card.
