Playing Guitar


On the way to Derbyshire we stopped off at a pub in Leatherhead - where we had lunch with my best friend and her new partner (who was over from Oz for her mum's 90th Birthday). We had a lovely week in although Whisper was not that impressed, as she had to be on the lead for 95% of the walks ?? (as dogs are not allowed off of leads in the National Park - first time i've ever known this !!), 'War Horse' was absolutely fabby and can you believe that it cost us less to see it in Bradford (excluding grandad babysitting), than at The National Theatre in London ??

Today's image is one i bought from the LOTV shop, when we were there at Easter and it's been made for Alan's Dad (who was in a band in the sixties - in fact he has a billboard, where he is at the top and 'The Beatles', were at the bottom !!) : 'Playing Guitar' the sentiment is also LOTV, the papers are : A Doodlebug Pad  - 'Boys Only', the musical score is : MB - 'Virtuoso Music' and the guitar is one i bought at a craft show in a pack of 5 from 'Cards Express'

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Father's Day / Masculine'

LOTV - Ideas To Inspire - where the Challenge this Month is 'Male or Sporty'

Moving Along With The Times - where the Challenge is 'Father's Day'

Charisma Cardz - where Challenge No: 12 is 'Father's Day'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Fantastic card Sam, sounds like you have been having a wonderful time. I don't believe you had to pay for babysitting services - l could be a millionaire by now - just taken Samantha a few light bulbs to her new place and ended up painting for a few hours lol, enjoy the rest of the weekend x Susan x
