Kenny K - Tommy Leen

Good morning everyone, I can't believe it's almost four months since I last posted!!  My Mum has had her operation and is doing very well:)  Lots of ups and downs over the last few months but we are getting there:)

I have stepped down at Make it Monday, as I didn't know how long it would be before I was back up and running properly. Also Mum's eyes are getting worse, she has AMD and needs a little more help with certain things, so I don't have the same time as I had before.  The girls on the team were fabulous and I'll miss all the banter on the team blog, as they all had a fabulous sense of humour!!

I haven't had much time for crafting, but have managed to make one card which is for my brother's birthday, I've also been wondering around blog land and it's making me want to get stuck in now lol!!

This is the inside, I just love those little tags from LOTV

Isn't this image by Kenny K smashing!.. my brother is worried about the amount of candles that his cake has to have now lol!! so I have made this card so he can reminisce about his youth, as he used to play the drums when he was younger! I bet he wishes he had all that hair now lol!!
The papers went with my theme fabulously going back in time! they are a lovely pad called 'Wellington' I have used this pad several times and need to get another one now!  The little tag sentiments are from LOTV I just love them, and the little notes was a cheap punch I bought from a craft show long ago... I think they are quiet nice.  My image was coloured in with Prisma Pencils and I used copics for the skin, still trying to learn how to use them lol!!  My music sheet is also a LOTV stamp, have been dying to use it for ages!

I've found a few challenges I would like to enter

  15. Hi Marjorie

    So pleased to read that your Mum is doing well. What a worrying time for you xx Strange how roles seem to reverse and the child eventually becomes like the parent in the grand scheme of things.

    Loving the card you have made for your brother. I especially love the way you have done the inside.

    I hope you manage to find a little more crafty time for yourself. Nothing like a wander around blogland to get the creative juices flowing!

    Take care

    Hope you have a good day

    Love Jules xx
