Step Back In Time - Groovy Baby!

 Good morning blogland :o) Wow it seems ages since I last posted but it has been lovely to have a break and spend some time with the family over the festive period - I even got to 'see' and speak to Lola and Katy on Christmas Day - even though they were in Padstow and we were in Stonehouse - it was all by the magic of  'FaceTime' on John's iPhone - how crazy is that???!!!
We had a wonderful Christmas - it was like Santa's Grotto on my lounge on Christmas Day - so many gorgeous gifts!

Anyway today we have a new challenge for you over at


and this challenge will run for two weeks to give the DT a little more time to enjoy the New Year celebrations and hopefully have some playtime with new Christmas crafty stash :o)

Luckily I had this prepared before the festivities started and it was sooooooo easy to put together.
The DT got to choose a kit from this fortnight's sponsor

and our theme this week is

(Music/Retro related)
To make it even easier for us the images were all pre-coloured as well - what a bonus when you need to make a card in a hurry!

 I had a 'happy accident' when I printed the Design Paper and the word art sentiment over the top - but I liked the way it turned out so decided to stick with it :o)
Sweet Sixteen sentiment - PC generated and then coloured over with co-ordinating Promarker
Crocheted flower from stash with English Rose - Marianne Createable added to centre.
A few adhesive pearls from stash and that was as easy as that.

We also have a brand new playmate - Sandra and it would be great if you could pop over and give her a warm welcome.

Hope you can find some time between now and 12 Jan 2012 to join in the fun with us.
Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
