Day Tripper!

Afternoon all and I'm here with a more relaxed post, feet up on the couch but still buzzing from a very exciting morning at Abbey Road studios :) Around 150 rock choir members rocked up this morning at 9.30 to record two songs, Adele and Bruno Mars. We had a Ukranian film crew filming us and the guy in charge of the recording was Simon Rhodes who is responsible for the music for every major film you can name and also the music for the Winter Olympics at Sochi! Now he can put us on his CV :) 
Anyway back to crafting and my card for this week's challenge over at Less is More which is:
For our recipe this week we have chosen 
We'd like to see something made from metal on your creation.
Anything will do, charms, soda can scraps, diecuts, eyelets, paperclips, brads, whatever you can come up with!

I was inspired by a card that Loll had made using inset die cutting technique and I decided to have a go, come and see:

 Now I've never had much luck with metal sheets but that's the look I wanted so I got some kitchen foil, folded it into 4 and cut out my MB tree. I then cut the tree out from white cardstock and inset the metal tree. I popped the image up onto a card blank and the sentiment is from SU Wetlands set and cut out with a Heartfelt die.
What a lovely day we had yesterday it was like spring and Jim had his first social outing as we were at a Christening. He coped well and managed a couple of Guinness to aid his recovery!! I forgot to take a photo of the box frame that I made, instead of a card, with the baby's names, a few butterflies and some pretty stencilling with embossing paste.
Time to sign off, Jim has just gone for his afternoon nap, part of his prescribed recovery and Dom has created some wonderful aromas in the kitchen with slow cooked pork, I can't wait. It was an early start, I had to be up at 6.45 to get over to St John's Wood in time so I may need a few zzz's myself :)
Thanks for taking the time to visit, I love to read your comments.

White rabbit syndrome!

Hi everyone, I'm all behind this week, hence the title! I've got a card for Less is More which is a masculine theme and my tag for the Craft Barn quotes and lyrics challenge where the words are Strong and Miss.

Card embossed, stamped and punched using SU Mosaic Madness

Tag stamped with an Acid and Whatnots stamp and the sentiment is from Catherine Zeta-Jones, not exactly profound!!
Rushing off to a quiz evening now:)

Anything goes!!

Hello all, just dropped in to post my card for this week's LIM challenge. I've been to Rock choir this evening and we are perfecting two songs ready for our recording debut at Abbey Road studios on 23rd Feb!! Exciting times:)
The weeks come around so quickly and it's 
week once more.
This time
Anything Goes!
I struggled a bit with this week's challenge, couldn't come up with anything I liked except lots of discarded ideas in my bits bag! Anyway this is my last shot at it:

Watercolour effect using Mustard Seed and Bundled Sage coupled with some script and piercing.

This nearly went in the bin but may come in handy, not sure though:)

Jim is doing well and I am constantly at his beck and call, definitely didn't miss my vocation:)
Thanks for visiting and you know I love to read your comments!

Birthday wishes

Well here I am with my card for this week's Less is More challenge, a bit late and I apologise for my lack of commenting this week but I have a very good excuse!! We had my SIL and BIL visiting us from Friday till Monday and on Tuesday my DH Jim had a hip replacement, so I've been a tad distracted:) Jim is doing brilliantly and expects to be discharged tomorrow. He has been walking around the ward and needs to attempt the stairs tomorrow. A must as we live in a Victorian town house over three levels:)
Anyway back to the challenge and this is what it is this week:
