A Messy Painter

My Uncle has done many painting and decorating jobs for us over the years.  He's now hung up his paint and brushes to enjoy retirement.  He celebrates his birthday next week and as soon as I saw this image he came to mind straight away.  The papers are Forever Friends - Best of British, the image is from LOTV Sketch Pad - Vintage Boys, and the stars are Woodware.  Yet again Sweet Sketch Wednesday have helped me with another brilliant sketch #221, and I'm also going to enter this card in to Lili's Little Fairies - the challenge this week is No Flowers.


  1. I love this LOTV image.

    Great card and use of the sketch. I always love to see your cards.
