U Rock!

Afternoon all - bit of a cold one in the UK isn't it? We don't have any snow here but the boys are doing a snow dance and keeping their fingers crossed for a whiteout tomorrow (and subsequent school closure of course!!)

There was high drama in the White house on Friday lunchtime - got  a phone call from school to say Hamish had had an accident - he had been headbutted(!!) in the playground - not only did he have a shiner but he feel backward and smacked his head hard on the ground and was feeling dizzy. So grandpa was duly despatched to collect him and take him to the doctors. He's fine now! And if that wasn't enough drama, last night I broke my Grand Calibur sob sob. Have ordered a new one from Create and Craft though!

Anyway I'm always on the lookout for a new challenge blog and came across this fantastic sketch blog themed towards birthdays - perfect! Seize the Birthday has 2 sketches a month but is a weekly challenge - one week you use the sketch for a female card then the following week use the same sketch for a masculine card. 

Hubby's birthday is at the end of the month and he is of an age where he remembers (as do I!!) albums and tapes - did you ever try to tape the Top 40 Charts off the radio every Sunday (or even making mixed tapes, ha)??? The papers are Bazzill Basics Paper "MAC" and the image is WRMK "You Rock" clear stamp. Paired it up with some twine, a charm, gems and a sentiment. A nice quick card to make!

Thanks for visiting!
