Playing the Guitar!

Hello Everyone, have you all had a good day?  I hope you have and that you've managed to do whatever you had to do today.
In the words of the immortal George Formby "it's turned out nice again!" We have had not too bad a day, I've managed to get all the washing dry, always like to get it out, so although it looked a bit watery this morning I thought I would just take a chance.  Anyway enough of the weather.

Can hardly believe it's the weekend already, it come around so quickly, and after the frenetic buzz of last weekend, this one is going to be very quite.  My hubby had let me know that there are a couple of big footy matches on TV, but he's not too bothered about them, which is Alistair speak for "I really want to watch them".  So I guess I'll be entertaining myself.  Oh well, lots of crafting to be done.

I have a card today;
I love this little image, the concentration on the little boy's face is so lovely and even the  wee dog looks as if he is enjoying the sound of the guitar.
I've used;   LOTV Playing the Guitar,  coloured with pencils
                  LOTV Sentiment
                  Candles and Cake from Nitwits at LOTV
                  Kraft Card
                  Papermania Twine
                  Card Candy and a button from my stash
                  Glossy Accents and a little sparkle
I'm really pleased with the colours, sometimes I'm not too sure at the outset but I think this has worked.
I would like to enter this card into; http://liliofthevalleythursdaychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/spots-and-stripes.html

That's me for tonight, but before I go I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit and comment on my last card, I do appreciate them all.
See you soon,
Kate x

Good "Sunny" morning Kate,
I love your card and the great image. I have used it but mine was pre-coloured. I am not a good colourer inner like you. Love the great layout as well.
John does not really follow football but likes to watch big games. I can go watch what I want in the kitchen while I craft. This might sound a bit selfish but if we cant watch telly together I MUST have the choice to watch something else if I want.
Have a Great Weekend
