Sketch Saturday #364

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Sami Stamps

My teamies make wonderful cards each week for your inspiration.  I admire them all but one of our Saturday Girls, Marzena, always puts a really innovative take on our sketches and that's what I have tried to do this week.  I don't have the same flair as her (and darn it I have my elements the wrong way round again) and you do need to view my card with your head tilted to one side but hopefully you can still see Alex' great sketch.
My BIL, Andy Smith, works in an opticians.  I made this card for him with Graphic 45 "Old Curiosity Shop" papers and an internet produced eyesight chart found at  I have relied on the boxy elements of my paper and the glasses (which should have been on the left) and pointing hand (which should have been on the right) to reflect the background in Alex' sketch.  I really like how it turned out!

Now we would like you to scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.  Don't forget to share some love with my lovely teamies too.
I am entering my card into the challenge at Simon Says Stamp for "Make it Masculine"

I really love your take on the much that I want to run out and buy some eyeglasses so that I can CASE your card! (I already have the stamp!) I think this card has amazing flair, it's so eye-catching (no pun intended) it!

LOL Lesley - I can still see the sketch and I think you did a fabulous job on this card! I really admire Marzena's style too but am definitely not as brave as you to try it :o) Hugs d
