Finally can post this card as it was given to the recipient yesterday!! It was meant as a bit of fun really - ther gentlemasn concerned has been known to laugh (occasionally) but he is fondly known as 'Grumpy' at the Bowls Club. (Grumpy or not, he is VERY good at serving the odd glass or two......)

I know it's been over a week since I put anything on here and I am beginning to think all my faithful follwers will have deserted me - it's been a ridiculously hectic week and I am finally glad to get a couple of days where I don't have to be rushing off to a bowling green or a meeting.

OH and I have today spent a whole day doing what WE wanted - in the form of meeting up again at Trentham Gardens with Maureen and her long suffering, having a picnic lunch (and no, it didn't rain), a wander round all the lovely shops (I bought - she didn't - HIGHLY unusual - lol), and having a giggle and a seriously relaxed time.

Back to the card -
Image is from Bugaboo (I bet all of us know someone like Gus here - LOL) and I coloured him with Promarkers, papers are from My Mind's Eye and the 'Grump' quote is from TLC.

Have had a quick trawl through blogland and found the following challenges -
Digis With Attitude (and boy has Gus got attitude!) - Anything Goes
Rainbow Lady - Use a Digi
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
