Sketch and Stash Challenge #7
Where does the time go? we're up to challenge 7 at Sketch and Stash already.
Becky has done another fabulous sketch and this time I've converted it from being square so I could make a larger card.
It's my uncle's birthday next week and I usually make him a vintage style card, but I really wanted to do something different this time and as I'd recently got the fabulous 'Charlie 007' and hadn't used it I thought this would be just perfect for him.
As it's a card for a man I've kept it very simple and not added any extra embellishments, with the result that it now looks far too plain for my tastes. Now I know why I don't like doing men's cards, but as he's such a darling and the best uncle ever, I'll make an exception!

You may have noticed I haven't been about much lately, well we've recently received some very sad family news with the result being that I really haven't felt like blogging or crafting. I'd like to apologise for not visiting you all as often as I normally would and also for not managing to leave a comment for all the people who joined in the last Sketch and Stash challenge, I hope you'll forgive me.
My lovely hubby has decided that we need to take a short break to give us a boost, so by the time you read this we'll be on our way to Cornwall for a week or so. I'm hoping that I'll feel a bit brighter on our return but we'll only be back for a short while before taking another trip, this time up to Suffolk to visit family for a while, so I'm really not sure how long it will be until I'm back to normal blogging again. I'll try to keep in touch as much as possible, but I hope you'll all understand if I'm not around much for a while.
