' BE INSPIRED '


Hi

Made this tag to go with the CD Birthday Card for husbands birthday, as you probably can guess he plays the piano..................

The Hand was a free download from Mirkwood Designs (thank you); Stamps by TJ Designs and Tim Holtz mask and distress inks, the backing paper was from old stash.

Challenges entered: Sunday Stampers and Drunken Stampers

It amused me no end to create this and I hope it amuses you as well.

Thank you for popping in and all your wonderful support. Off now to make my poor husband something sloppy........ Mince........ as he has just had a horrible down the throat x ray today so he should be able to swallow this without hurting his throat..............aaaaaaaaaahhhhhh. Annette x

Fabby - he will love it :O)) I have a funny story about me playing a piano... shall I bore you with it??? Erm... I had to have an operation on my spine... just before I went under the anaesthetic, I asked the surgeon... "will I be able to play the piano after the op?" He said "of course" so I said... "Oooh, that is good cos I can't play it now"... see, told you it was a bore ROFL... thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper, sorry for clogging up your comments page with my waffling and... have fun! x
