A tune for him .

Hi there every one . Welcome to my room . Warm wishes to you and yours for a pleasant day and many thanks for calling in .
 
I am definitely getting old! Talk about feeling the cold ! We have had the coldest weekend since ...well, the last Winter , I guess  . Bone chillin' to say the least .
To top it all , my mojo has gone walk about so I have been searching for inspiration  from  my stash of magazines and blog browsing .
But today I must complete two kits for Tuesday morning craft.
So this is a quick post to say hello all and to share this card .
I must acknowledge that I saw the idea for the back ground stamp on a blog but forgot to save link .
 
 
 Card base is Soft Suede, SU , as is top layer , Sahara Sand with
Stamp ,SU, Hardwood .Image and sentiment ,SU, Timeless Talk.



Had this in mind for a male relative's Birthday coming up soon .
 Definitely love this back ground stamp  and can see it being used again .
 I may or not find a challenge to enter and will be back to link ...

Had a pleasant surprise, hand made ,  delivered the other day from Amanda,
https://www.facebook.com/AmblingHome .

Of course the beautiful  cushion is in use but the stunning lounge pants are pinned ready to be hemmed so they will be worn when it gets a bit ..LOTS , warmer weather . I am really height deficient . Will model then.

There is a link to Amanda's Blog on her face book page and I know that once you have browsed her FB page you will definitely want to peruse her blog which is made up of interesting stories .

  Now I have not posted my weighty news for a while . Not because I have given up but because I seem to be a stable weight of 80 Kgs .So when I get off this I will share the news as I will be over the moon about it .


 
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne

Hi Shirley-Anne, I know sometimes mojo is hiding somewhere but you got it, girl! Is the wood background a stamp? Wow, I thought it was backing paper. You have made a beautiful card, old fashioned and clean. Lovely, and I am sure the receiver loves it too.
Thank you for entering the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge #7 "Use Stamp or Digi Stamp". Good luck and looking forward to seeing you again!
