Rock and Roll

Hi Folks
Well the weekend has come around again.  I must say that I love my weekends, especially since I went part time at work and have Mondays off.  I am enjoying the extra time at home and managing to get lots of little jobs done that would have been left otherwise.  Of course, I can manage to put in a bit of extra crafty time too.

I was going through my pictures tonight and came across this card that I did for a friend's birthday in August.  He is music mad and this card fitted the bill perfectly.

The guitar image is a stencil that I have had for a few months.  I think I got it from Ally Pally last year.  I used some silver glitter paste that I purchased at the same time.  The topper was in my stash and I have had this for about two years.  Not sure where the background music paper came from.  I used the stencil and distress ink to add some musical notes.  The wording was done using some letter die cuts that I have.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.    Thank you to all my lovely followers who leave such lovely comments.  I do appreciate you all and feel honoured that you like my work enough to follow me.  
Anyway, I am in the process of putting some candy together as I will be celebrating a special birthday at the end of February (don't tell anyone but I will be 50!!).  So keep your eyes peeled for the candy announcement.
