Hitting The Right Note ...

Hi everyone,

I hope all my lovely blog buddies are well and are enjoying this gorgeous Summer we are having (here in the UK anyway), we did have a couple of cool evenings this week and hubby even lit a fire on Tuesday as the drop in temperature was quite noticeable ~ I did comment on the fact that he was only wearing a T-shirt and shorts and that might be why he was feeling cold ~ lol.

The list of things breaking down is still growing, the hot water system has failed another two times, despite the plumber replacing what we thought was the faulty part, we now think it is the timer control unit that is faulty, but the plumber is on holiday and I can't get hold of him.  The indoor barbecue grill (I know posh or what) is still managing to trip the fuse box when in use ~ we have already had one of the elements replaced (under warranty thankfully), but it now knocks out the fuse box when you switch it off ~ not sure where to go with that one!  The good news is that the extractor fan has got over its strop and gone back to full time work, but the lights in the bathroom have started flickering when you turn them on full power.

Anyhoo ~ enough of all that, on to my share for today.  This is a card I made for a friend of ours who plays the saxophone.  I feel it's a bit of a cheat because I used an image downloaded off the tinter web ~ I did try to find a digi image that was suitable, but couldn't find anything in time.


Image: Downloaded from the tinter web
Cardstock: From scrap box
Die: CC Designs ~ 'Music Border'
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards ~ 'Mini Messages ~ Birthday ~ Black'

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Just to finish we went on a ramble last Sunday with the Midland Bearded Collie Club it was at Lyth Hill County Park which has breath taking views, a lovely ramble followed by Sunday Lunch at the Three Fishes Pub which was delicious.

A couple of photos for you Beardie people out there (and everyone else of course)

Hi Bev

Sorry it has taken me so long to arrive here .. .. it is taking me a lifetime to catch up.

That is a brilliant image you found. It would make a great rubber stamp!

Loving the "puppy lift" photograph too!

I hope all is well with you.

Love Jules xx
