I Heard It On The Radio

The sun is out, the sky is blue and today I have a new challenge for you!

Yup it's back to team A at Moving Along with the Times, and our great boss has set the theme as...

I Heard It On The Radio

And by that she wants a card inspired by a catchy tune - so if you ain't singing said tune in your head as you make the card, you haven't nailed the theme!

Now I don't know how many songs I've thought of for this challenge, stamps I've picked then...changed my mind!  In the end, I went with my brand spanking new Stampendous stamp - bought from 123 Stitch.com.  Remember last week I said I needed more Art Impressions stamps, well this cling stamp followed them over too - must have got stuck on the back of the pack cause I can't remember ordering it !!!

So, back to the card;



Papers are Basic Grey, the paw print is actually from a Andrex puppy pack years ago and the colouring by Promarker.

And my song... What's New Pussy Cat by Tom Jones! - dedicated to Merlot, obviously!

Challenges;
Sketch n Stash 139 - Think I'll use this one again! New stamp & old papers.
Addicted to Stamps - Inspired by a song
Come & Get It - Birthday
Crafting At The Weekend - Anything Goes
Open Minded Challenges - Use Ribbon

As for training - so far so good.  Been out running twice this week, had a day of rest and today is just exercises.  In 6 weeks I'll be like a whippet out of it's trap!

Great card. I love the paw print, the plaid paper and the ribbon. Nice layout too. I remember that song.

This card goes great with what I saw on the TODAY show just this morning. A dog attacked a 4yr old in his own front yard and the family cat attacked the dog and chased him off. They had home security video of it. It should be on You Tube. Called Hero Cat or something. So...........the dog really did do it.
