Name That Tune :)

Morning peeps and we are half way through the week so time to nip across the pond and see what’s happening with the Simon Says Stamp Challenge crew today.

We have a FAB theme for you and our challenge this week is to use a

SONG or FILM title as Inspiration

and the DT have been sooo creative with some clever choice of songs to match their work, so if you get a sec, nip and check it all out me darlins.

There is a voucher up for grabs …

… which you get to spend in the Simon Says Stamp Store

So, what did I do then???

Well here’s the old card and the song I used is also the sentiment.

It’s Anyone For Tennis by Eric Clapton / Cream (and guess who is showing her age now ).

Wanna listen???

Yes, wouldn't that be nice indeed  :)

However I must confess that although I used to play several times a week many moons ago – it’s where I met my beloved and he was and still is awesome and sadly I was not – I hadn’t hit a ball for over 6 years until we went to Anglesey and I managed to hit a few with his Lordship. Kyla bless her was our ‘ball girl’ and she creased us as she kept crouching down at the side of the net like she has seen them do on the telly, bless her!!!

Attention to details is everything with that kid lol!!

And speaking of which, I better get back to the card instead of rambling on.

So I used Tennis Tilda – LOVE that image – and coloured her with these Copics -

E000, E00, E21, R11, R20 (skin), E35, E41, E42, E50 (hair), B0000,B000, B00, B02, C00, C1, C3, YG0000, YG01, YG03 (the rest).

The papers used are First Edition Up Up  & Away 6 x 6 paper pack – gorgeous clean colours I think.  And the old faithful Tilda Lace Die has joined us once again (I cannot help it cos it’s so pretty).

And there we are done.

I’ll be back in the morning with another card to share and now I better get off and get some flippin’ work done, booo hisssss lol!!!

I don’t usually do this but thought I might enter this into a few challenges as it fits and they are –

Charisma Cardz – Inspired by A Song
