I feel charming - oh so charming

It's alarming how charming I feel.....!

Good morning all

Well depending how old you are or how many musicals you have watched - you'll be singing your head off now and I have just planted your song for the day firmly in there.

For those who don't know the song is I feel pretty from West Side Story - just to put you out of your misery - I'd hate to keep you wondering lol

And the reason I feel so charming is because that's our challenge theme at 


The card here isn't the card I started to make!! - I had another one of those days yesterday ( on top of still catching up after my hollies)  I spent the day in hospital with my son Tom who was having some dental work done as a day patient under general anesthetic - on the bright side I got lots of knitting done for my new granddaughter Eva as I wiled away the hours, on the minus side I was wrecked when we eventually got home and just couldn't be bothered to finish my colouring that I had started the day before.  - but that's where good old precoloured images from TPS come in very handy.  I had printed this one off ages ago just to have on standby as a quick card
- and this was just the occasion to use it!

This pretty girly complete with background paper is Melody
 - available Here

I simply printed the image twice and cut the image and star out and decoupaged for a 3d effect.  I had added "just a note to say" in word before I printed it and after that I simply inked the edges with TH DI in Tea dye added the die cut musical notes from a MFT die - cut in black card and I had that cute little guitar charm that I tied with a piece of twine.  The inside has the matching paper ready to stamp a sentiment - nearly all images from TPS come with all these elements along with the lined image that you can colour.  Check them all out here if you've never seen them before - I often use them for a quick make.

As always we have a fab prize at our challenge

Well I must be off - today's not much better than yesterday - it's dog operation day today, our dog Glenn has to have a big operation because he has a ruptured cruciate ligament, I don't have to spend the day with him but its a journey to the specialist orthopedic vet and back .... and the worry : (

Hope you have a lovely day whatever you're doing

Great card Judith, the pre-coloured images from the paper shelter are fabulous. I hope your son's dental treatment was a success. One place I hate is the dentist so he has my sympathy. Very productive use of the time tho!
