Crafty Little Fairies - top of the pops

Morning everyone :o)

I should be at the gym, but I'm far too busy worrying about Morgan and feel the need to be right by the phone lol... so I'll have a day in the craft room instead.

Our new challenge at Crafty Little Fairies is one of those that I dread, because my mind goes completely blank - 'top of the pops' (or inspired by a song).  Even though I listen to loads of different music, I can only ever come up with something deeply embarrassing and I might have outdone myself this time with 'Lipstick, Powder & Paint' by Shakin' Stevens... hangs head in shame... For some unknown reason, when I was around 7 or 8 I had a bit of a crush on old Shaky - I even had a Shaky calendar... it must have been quite worrying for my parents lol.

Our fab sponsors this week are The Ribbon Girl and Iva Nova Chest.

Items Used
Card base - Grand Nestabilities Labels 4 dies
(with point cut off at the back so it stands up)
Stamp - Getting Ready - LOTV (won on LOTV blog hop)
Colouring - copics

Off to the craft room... Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

Oh that is just beautiful Lisa! Love the shape of the card and your colouring is perfect (almost goes without saying!).

I think I'd be right there worrying as well if Emily had a few nights away as well! She's never had any sort of sleepover or trip/holiday away - I would probably even be going so far as to pick the phone up every so often to make sure it's working!!!!


PS - You and me both with Shaky - I even had a couple of albums!! I also used to know every word to Green Door and This Old House!! Nothing to be ashamed of at all
