CHECK this out!

Well my printer finally got looked at in the workshop and pronounced dead! poor thing was only 2 months old!! So awaiting a new one which won't arrive till end of next week because of the bank holiday! Have borrowed a printer from my son, not the best of printers, but better than nothing!
This is a birthday card for a friend's dad. He loves pottering about in the garden so decided to go all browns and ginghams.

Medium - pencils
I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Sweet Sketch Wednesday - followed their sketch

3. Cooking It Up With Katie - boyish, checks and brown
4. Allsorts - inspiration from the garden
5. Sew Many Challenges - Happy Birthday

Great card Pinky, the image is just great and I love the colours of the papers youve chosen.

Nothing seems to be made with any care these days does it? Its amazing to think it only lasted 2mths, how awful is that.
I hope the replacement comes a little sooner for you though!

Really cute card Pinky, love the gingham it alwasys looks fresh. Great card for a man. Sorry to here about your printer, to think it only lasted 2 months and is now in printer heaven. They say it's a throw away society you would expect it to last longer than that.
Thanks so much for joining us at SSW this week.
