Those Darned Men - Vol 2!

Bit like buses - no men's cards for ages then 2 come along at once....
A big hello to my new followers - it's lovely that you have chosen to follow me and to ALL my followers - I really appreciate that keep dropping in to see what I'm doing!

Second male themed effort to share with you all today - this image from Mo Manning really is just perfect for my dearly beloved.


This is him! I'm convinced Mo must know him - He sits here to my right with his two screens and his headphones and I can hear 'click click click click' as he plays on line with all his 'mates' from all over the world.. makes me laugh cos it sounds like they're a bunch of school boys when actually some of them are older than he is and in the rest of them there isn't one of them under 35!

'Boys and their Toys' was an expression designed for my very own Inspector Gadget..... he asked me the other night what I was doing and I told him 'Colouring you in'................ LOL

Mo's image 'Computer Guy' coloured with promarkers, matted, layered and stitched onto papers from my stash, some dark grey square brads and a PC generated sentiment.

The layout is based on a sketch this week from Willow Sketchie - I just tilted it slightly.

Challenges -

MAWTT - Keep it real
Willow Sketchie - 3 different papers/Sketch
Crafty Creations - Male Birthday
Dude time doodles - Masculine Birthday
Cards For Men - Kicking Back (and this is how my OH relaxes would you believe!)

Grey day here again - had a nice day yesterday strolling round Trentham Gardens with Maureen and her OH- and of course having coffee and cake......LOL - sun came out and although not very warm it was quite pleasant in the sunshine - really do wish this unsettled weather would vanish and give me some much needed blue sky and WARM sunshine!
Hope all is OK with all of you - have a nice day! x

Super card Viv, reminds me of my sons as they both work with computers a lot in their jobs. I am glad I have my own space though, my OH is in the treble garage( yes treble... he built a spare then a place to make wooden 'stuff'. At least we are at each end of the house too, lovely and quiet for us both :) Viv xx
