The waiting game!

Had to spend the day at home today waiting for "The" Laptop to be collected for repair so thought I'd use my time wisely doing non noisy things so that I wouldn't miss the door bell. Of course,I could have chosen to do ironing but that might pose as a danger,leaving an unmanned iron to answer it! (that's my excuse anyway) lol ! Much safer to spend the day crafting. The only trouble is that all my girlie projects are up to date leaving a long list of men's cards still to do :(

Thought I'd find a few challenges to do whilst I tackled them. The card I'm showing this evening is following the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge 63, haven't managed to submit one for this before as I usually forget that this one closes on a Thursday evening so I miss the deadline. The Just for Ewe I bought years ago ,forgot I'd got it,I thought I could use this for a man's card. I used my C1 Copic to get some shape into the image and used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss the white strip of card. The Papers are My Minds Eye Quite Contrary which I've used along with some bright green card stock. That's one off my list,will show you the others through the week,will be hitting a few more challenges along the way too!
Forgot to say,4pm came and I received a phone call to say that "The" Laptop collection had not been booked,have now got to spend another day tomorrow waiting to hear the door bell. Card making or course work????? I really cant decide!!!
Thanks for stopping by,
