Freshly Made Sketches #182 (and Colour Q #288)

Hello again!

I'm sneaking this in at Freshly Made Sketches before the challenge closes.  We were invited to my cousin's 50th recently...a lovely thought,  but a party we'll definitely have to miss since it's happening on the other side of the world. Living in Australia is all very well, but it can play havoc with my social life.....

I've had to edit this post as I was a bit cheeky and posted my Colour Q card 24 hours earlier than usual. So, here are the colours - perfect for something masculine don't you think?

I used Casual Friday's cheeky WTF set for this one. I managed to get a few different textures on there..cork, wood, washi, a metal badge and some sweet burlap numbers from Little Yellow Bicycle. 

Hope you get the time to join in before Mr Linky closes his doors!

Thanks for popping by again,
