What to do?

This is Glasgow Fair Monday, it's the start of the trades fortnight so Andy is off for another day... although, he's gone to play golf so the boys and I are in the house. 

I was full of plans to do something but it's looking kinda damp and miserable out there so not sure we will be doing very much.  Maybe the unpacking will get done at last.... Mmm, how could I make that fun?!

So I was at the Crafty Cabin last night as Cass and her family go on holiday on Tuesday, I'm afraid I wasn't that productive, although I should have been because I have loads to do.

I did manage to do a card for the Sugary Sunday SN Facebook challenge, which this week, is One For The Boys :) I'm not that happy with his hair, I tried to go for the choppy look but am not entirely convinced by it but figured if I tried to fix it I would end up binning it so it will do!

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Sugar Bowl - Gayle's sketch
Make it Monday
Creative Mondays - For Men
Incy Wincy - Dust it Off (the image is quite an old one, I think I may have used him once on Craig's birthday card a couple of years ago and then he went back in the box, the stamp, not Craig)
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Let's Hear it For the Boys

No new products were harmed in the making of this card! Use It Up 2012.

Image - Manga Boy, Funky Kits coloured with Promarkers and Copics, Sentiment, Ladybug Crafts Ink
Cardstock/Paper - From stash
Tools - Button Die, MFT, Cuttlebug

Thanks for dropping by today. Hugs. Susan xxx
