Atemi

 

Dude Time Doodles is the sponsor for the fabulous sketch challenge blog at Card Patterns this week and we're so excited about that!    This is just a wonderful sketch so be sure and stop by Card Patterns and enter for a chance to win a great prize!

This is Kyle Karate and he's such a cute little guy and looks like he's ready to kick some......well, you know.  This image would make a wonderful card for one of the dudes in your life and you can find him at the  Dude Time Doodles store.  

Now I know everyone is still trying to figure out what the heck Atemi (the title of this post) means!    Well, since I knew NOTHING about karate, I decided to look it up and found that Atemi  is the art of striking vital points!  Kyle looks like he's either struck some vital points on someone - or maybe someone has struck a couple of vital points on him!! LOL!

Be sure and head over to Card Patterns to see all the wonderful creations by the design team - and then submit your entry for the sketch challenge.

Thanks for stopping by........

Great card with Kyle! Love the embossed background and the twine!

Love that patterned paper you used on the bottom. It sort of looks like ribbon that you box-pleated. I think someone struck a vital spot on Kyle :-).

Wonderful card Lynn and great colors! Love the window box effect and thank you so much for explaining Atemi.

This is really funny!! I love the expression on this guys face! It's either extreme weekend warrior tactics, or extreme pain, but I'm not sure which! LOL Great card, too much fun:)

Lynn, Love the colors you chose and the plaid paper. I think he's fabulous and the button and twine are so perfect! Love the way you popped him up and centered him over the top/bottom division of the card. It really makes him look like he's in mid-air. Excellent use of the sketch!

He is so funny! Love the cord - it is the perfect addition and compliment to his karate belt!
Thanks for the johnny-on-the-spot reply to my recent (donkey) as& card. It was great fun to create.
