Evening folks, thanks for popping by. 
The weather appears to have calmed down for a while, just some heavy showers this dinnertime. Hope everyone is safe and sound after all the mayhem. 
I've been in the wars again, slipped down the last few stairs yesterday evening! Must take more water with it, LOL. Suffering a little today as I can't sit  or keep any position for long. A hot water bottle is the answer but working out how to keep it in the right place is troublesome.
But I have managed to make a card today that is not for a DT post. It's kept me busy and taken my mind off my sore back.

This effort was made using the sketch from Sweet Stamping and the image is influenced by LOTV's latest challenge, Name that tune. I have been wrecking my brains for a song to go with one of my stamps. I decided on 'Sailing' by Rod Stewart, a favourite of mine from way back.
The papers are from the Nit Wits 'Aye Aye Captain' collection, the brads from a Papermania capsule collection which have been sat in my drawer for a long time. The circular sentiment is from LOTV also.
The little boy and his yacht were coloured using Copics as usual, as follows:-

Hair - E30, 31, 33, 37
Boat - B000, 23, 24, B32 Y21, 26, 28
Sails, T-shirt - C0,3,blender
Shoes - E71, 77, 79
Skin - E000, 00, 11 R20

I shall enter it for the following challenges-

Allsorts - brads
ATSM - Make your mark
LOTV - Name that tune ( Sailing)

Well that's about it for today. Thanks for calling around, see you again sometime.
