Down Time!

It has just been utter madness this week - lots of dummies being spat out (all by the same person I might add) and so those left have had to turn to and get stuck in to sort it all out! Never rains etc etc!! LOL
So that explains my absence - will have a visit to you all hopefully either today or tomorrow too - need some down time and blog trawling is VERY therapeutic!
Onto today's offering -

Those who know us know that Dear Husband is a lunatic gamer (Friday night is Game Night - Do Not Disturb under Pain Of Death) and this is just HIM... although sometimes the red mug is replaced with the bottle of beer....
Image was coloured with promarkers, a little DI added round the edges and mounted onto a scrap of card.
All the papers were from my stash and popped on a couple of metal brads.

Whilst rummaging about for something else in a never used box I found a plastic container packed with these Scrabble Tiles - purchased a long time ago and hardly ever used - come to think of it, I really don't know why I bought them in the first place and probably now I've used them on this card they'll just get stuffed away again for the next 5 years.
Away now to get the papers sorted for yet another meeting- hopefully the last one in the sorry saga- then all can just go back to normal! (Or as normal as my life ever was! LOL)

Thanks for paying me a visit today - appreciate it. 'See' you all soon. x

  18. Some things never change. Back in the 1970s in my days as a Scouter and on several committees, there was always someone throwing there rattles out of their prams, and the faithful few of us having to clean the mess up!!!
    Wonderful card :o)

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  20. Hi Viv
    your card is just perfect.
    I also have some of those scrabble tiles somewhere - unused!! They are probably with my unused peel-offs - remember them!?

  21. Wonderful card! The Scrabble tiles are perfect with this image and really have an impact.

  22. It sounds good that hubby has a gaming hobby, it gives you some extra time to spend on your own as well:) I know quite a few men this image would be perfect for. Great colors and I like the scrabble letter design too.

  23. My husband's a bit of a gamer too - I need to get that image. Your card is perfect - love the added scrabble tiles!

  24. I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.
