On the last day of September

Hi all,
This week has gone so quickly.  It must be the two bank holidays.  It was pouring with rain yesterday, so we went to a soft play.  The girls loved it, but both fell asleep on the way home.  Maybe them getting up at 5.45am had something to do with it!
Over at CRAFT thie week, we are sponsored by Crimson Cloud, Floppy Latte, Trimgym's digital stamp and papers and Flonz, a new rubber stamp company.  Our theme is to create a project for a male.  I have used Ship 3 by Floppy Latte for my card and I have used a sketch from Feeling Sketchy, a relatively new challenge blog.  The sketch is very clean and simple, not a style I do much or well, but I thought I would have a go.  I still feel the card is a bit plain, but I have left well alone!  I have inked the edges of the papers and inked the scrabble tiles so they weren't so stark.
I would like to enter this into:
Feeling sketchy - sketch

This is so lovely, I find mens cards difficult, but I do really like the scrabble tiles as an addition :) Thankyou for playing with Feeling Sketchy and I hope you will join us again next week :)
