Well I don't know where the week has gone but I'm here with a quick post and a card I created last night.

It's a commission for Father's Day and looking at how quick the weeks are flying I best get my crafty mits working on something for my own Dad and F-I-L! 

If you follow my blog regularly you'll know I've been having some renovations to my Master bedroom and ensuite shower room and I'm happy to say the shower room, at least, is taking shape. All walls moved, plastered, tiled and initial plumbing in place and we've a lull now until the units can be fitted then it'll all come together (fingers-crossed) quite swiftly. I can't wait and have already 'bagged' first shower when it's done! LOL!

So here's my card and it's to enter the Sketch Saturday Challenge (#231 27th October '12and Simon Says Stamp where the theme is Father's Day / Masculine.

Card Recipe:
