My DT creation for challenge 117 over at OSAAT - For the man in your life


I made this little gift wallet to surprise my hubby Baz with a romantic dinner for two with bubbly in The Cotswolds rather than just give him the sheet of paper. We went last weekend and had a great time.

The image I have used is called Love Pot and is by Stitchy Bear Stamps, its available in The Stitchy Store HERE.  I have used the following Copics and Promarkers to colour, C00, C2, C3, E000, E42 and Berry Red.

Our challenge this week is "For the man in your life" and we are sponsored by Creative Craft World

 hop on over to join in with our challenge HERE.
