A quick post...

...before I start tea.

First I just want to blog this card I have made for Ians son:

He plays guitar and sings in a local rock?? band - not sure what genre they are loud screamy stuff - lol - how old does that make me sound!! So I thought this Stamping Boutique image was very suitable.

The paper is from my stash and then embossed some mirricard the image was coloured with pro-markers and glossy accents added to the guitar the little stars came from Debbie.

I would like to enter this into:

Crafty Creations - stripes
Paper Pretties - masculine
Anything goes challenge blog - boyz to men
Creative craft challenge - boys will be boys

Postie came a knockin' today so that cheered up a grey day The Travelling Craft Box that LaaLaa arranged - I received the box from Heather at Pink Milk - I cant reveal what was in the box but can show a piccie of what I received from Heather:

The cutest mouse which matches the colour scheme in my living room so he has taken up residence on the mantlepiece, choccie (yum), cross stitch fabric/chart and love which I might have a go at painting. Huge thanks xxx

I have taken two items from the box:

and I have replaced these items.

I am now going to send it on to Pene.

Thanks to Lynda for organising a great swap.
