What am I doing today

Well folks....the weather is absolutely glorious today but the forecast ain't looking good for the rest of the week.....so I was finding it hard to be in crafty mood but so wanted to get some challenge cards done........and then I got a frantic call this morning from a very good friend.....CAN YOU DO ME A CARD......well I ain't doing commission cards no more.....but hey this lady was such a good customer....I didn't have the heart to say NO.......when do you need it  for..... I asked....wait for it...LUNCHTIME....well that didn't half kick the old mojo into touch and boy was this one a challenge......the brief was...MALE...and already I am groaning......no worries I thought GOLF OR FOOTBALL......NO.....LOVES BLACK AND WHITE.....SNAZZY DRESSER.....LOVES BLING AND IS GAY......yikes....a mega challenge then.    And you know I always say that I work better under pressure....no time to faff around...just get crafting.....and here we go.......made in half an hour.
