Anyone that follows my blog will know I'm a big Olly Murs fan, so when I saw an Inspired by a Song challenge, I thought I'd try and make a card based on one of his songs... but which song?

To help me out, I turned to the lovely Bugaboo - if ever you're stuck, chances are they will have an image that suits as they have images on everything!

So, I went with... Slingshot Sean & Troublemaker! (Feel free to have a listen while you read on!)

The papers this time are Basic Grey - a selection from several packs.  Colouring by Promarker & the sentiment LOTV.

Hope everybody has had a good Bank Holiday.  I spent most of it in the garden having a tidy up.  It was actually quite warm for a bit...till it started to rain! Jx

11th May
It's funny how some challenges you enter regularly you never win on, then others you enter and first time you win.  I've been in both categories, and one elusive challenge for me has been Crafty Catz, but that all changed today!  For the first time I have won a challenge there, I'm so pleased.  I know it was a random winner pick too, but who cares, I just wanted to win it!  & the prize - a super £10 voucher at LOTV! Brilliant cause that comes on top of my candy win from Debs - £25 LOTV voucher - so guess what? Lots of LOTV coming soon to a blog near you!  Thanks guys, Jx
