Where did the weekend go?

I may have been missing this weekend but I have been busy.... got a couple of DT cards coming up tomorrow but here's a card I managed to fit in before I went to work this morning.... yes I was up at 5.45am today! My eldest son is doing his work experience at an Army camp in Folkestone, a 3.5hr journey from here, on a good day, thank goodness its residential! Didn't think it was worth going back to bed when he'd gone, its bad enough having to get up once a day never mind twice!! So I turned the heating on and shut myself in my craft room.

I thought I would make a man's card using the sketch from Papertake Weekly. The image is a Whimsy, coloured with copics and the papers are from the Basic Grey Archaic range, quite appropriate for the image I thought...
I am also entering this for the Stamp Something challenge this week which is to use brown on your card.

I even managed to decorate the inside of the card and all before 7.30am! Am off to cook dinner now, hope to be back later but have got a bedroom to fumigate, oops I mean decorate, this week while DS1 is out of the way.
