Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 22 - Sketch

Good morning!  Today it is the turn of the lovely Tams to pick the theme of this weeks challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog and she has chosen

A Sketch

This is my take on it :-)

And here's the original sketch by Maya Stenshagen
I used Football Jack from LCI to make a Mothers Day card for my MIL from the kids, and teamed him (no pun intended!) with some MME papers, some Kraft and Red CS and some PTI ribbon along with some clear buttons and red embroidery thread.  The circle has been embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder (I can see this one being used A LOT on boys and mens cards!!)

I'd like to enter my card into these challenges please :-)

Looking forward to seeing your creations

Before I go, I'd just like to say a huge thanks to everyone that sent their love, thoughts and prayers for my Dad, I'm pleased to say that he was looking a million times better last night, although he's not completely out of the woods yet I am hopeful that this time he is under the care of a consultant who is going to figure out why this keeps happening, because this was by far the worst yet, and I think even my Dad has figured he got away with it this time (despite being a flippin idiot and not calling for an ambulance early enough!).  He's still in the intensive heart care unit and they are still stablising him so ok for now, but still scary!
Thanks for stopping by
