About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes 11 - 24 August - piano man

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes 11 - 24 August - piano man

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
Piano Man
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Makin' love to his tonic and gin
He says, "Son, can you play me a memory
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes"
La la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feelin' alright

I have used papers and precoloured digi stamp and element from Polkadoodles Work and Play CD -collection 8 Feel the Music.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I followed sketch 515 at Tuesday Morning sketches so I would like to add my card to that challenge
