Oldest Rocker in town!

Well I would say good morning to you all, but I am so tired and stinky from not showering yet that it's not that good at the moment.  My youngest son decided to dive off the arm of the sofa last night head first!  Then go all floppy on us.  So I called Drs out of hours who sent an ambulance and they decided we needed to go to the hospital and be checked out :o(  So  off we go in the ambulance with Jake strapped to a blow up splint screaming because he can't move(actually he managed to get his feet out of the splint before we even left the school car park!)  but still he screamed for 40 mins all the way to the hospital.  They checked him over and took the splint off then decided to keep us in over night to observe  him as the journey back is quite a way if he was sick or went down hill.  He is fine, woke up this morning smiling at me over the cot and then persisited in running off the ward into the corridor with me chasing him every 5 mins until dad came to pick us up! Thank you for taking great care of myson Wonford A&E, I am very greatful, but I am also veryhappy to be home! One good thing so far today is a wonderful suprise, I won challenge 50 at
card :o)  Thank you Bee you made my day :o)

So onto todays card

The backing papers are again Pink petticoat( I wanted to use them up and not put them in mydrawer for years!) And I have matted in brown and blue.  I have wrapped cross stitch thread around the centre square. I also added two buttons at the side of the card threaded with cross stitch thread.
The image is again from Kenny K called 'Groove dude' and I have again coloured with pro markers and cut him out then layered him on with foam pads.

I created the sentiment on my computer and inked with blue and brown.

Again I created this star and sentiment on my computer and inked with brown and blue.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges Anything goes(missed the fathers day deadline!) My favourite colours( seem to be Blue and brown at the moment)

Hope you all like it

Thanks for stopping by and any lovely comments.
