Rockin All Over The World!

Hi everyone,


It is me the elusive blogger ~ busy busy again.  After all the work we had done on the house last year (and some this year) I have struggled to get everything straight again ~ I do like things straight!  There is a lot of finishing off to do and a lot of things seem to have lost their homes and keep re-appearing around the house.  DH loves this because all of a sudden there is something where there wasn't something before and rather than look where he is going he trips over it (no matter how big the item is) and swears a lot!  His two biggest bug bears are my cardboard box mountain ~ literally ~ in the workshop and my eBay mountain ~ again literally ~ on the landing, of course the two go hand in hand, I sell stuff on eBay and need boxes to send it out, he doesn't quite see this train of thought!  


I have been busy organising another sale on eBay and trying to sort out my craft room.  A lot of my craft stuff lost its home in the work ~ I have been having a major sort out (hence the eBay sale) and re-organising the way everything is stored.  I will be posting my latest storage solution on here tomorrow ~ just because I am so excited about it ~ lol.


Anyhoo, enough of all that.  My share today is a card that I made for a friend who now lives in Spain.  He is mad about Status Quo and I was thrilled to find this image for free on the tinter web.



For this card I used one of my famous cut down hammered white card blanks, the background papers are from the Echo Park 'Yours Truly' paper pad.  I have mounted 'Francis' onto a piece of metallic grey glossy card stock and then again onto a piece of blue Bazzil Basics card stock, I was trying to pick out the colour of his denims.  To finish I have added a black grosgrain ribbon, three blue Craftwork Cards 'Candi' dots and a sentiment also from Craftwork Cards which has a Josy Rose nail head attached to it, so it looks like a brad.


I do hope you all like it.


I'll be back tomorrow with my storage photo.


Thanks for stopping by.
