Another 365 challenge

Having made three 50s inspired cards in response to the 365 challenge for day 191, I noticed that there was a bit of black and white checkerboard background on one of the die cuts used. This reminded me of the challenge on 365 for day 179: 'checkerboard background', so here is the card I came up with, again with a 'rock and roll' feel to it:

And more memories

Two more cards that were inspired by the challenge on day 191 on 365 cards:

Memories of the 50s

Day 191 on 365 was Musical Monday, when we were asked to produce a card inspired by the song 'Chantilly lace'. Well, there isn't any lace in sight on my card. For me, it brought back memories of the 1950s, reminding me of juke boxs (anyone remember 'Juke Box Jury' with David Jacobs? - yes, I'm showing my age!)

Everything I've used is from the recent music and dance kit I got from QVC.

First crafting since Saturday

Unfortunately, John was very poorly on Sunday morning and had to stay in hospital overnight - they thing the episode is heart related, so they will be doing more tests, but at least he is back home again now.

So all thoughts of crafting were put to the back of my mind again, but this evening I thought I'd attempt something, although really I didn't feel like it, but sometimes I find that it can be good to make the effort.

So these two cards are for day 192 on 365 cards (yesterday's challenge): 'so sweet' - to include the word 'sweet' on a card.

The papers were some I acquired long ago from Poundland and the chipboard tags and other embellies have been in my 'baby bits' box for quite a time.

If you click on the pictures for a closer view you will see that the 'boy' card has 'sweet dreams' on it and 'sweetie' on the tag - and the 'girl' card also has 'sweetie' on the tag.

The colours aren't that true because I've had to resort to flash photos because the chipboard was too raised up to scan well.

This has now given me a couple of cards to help fill gaps in supplies.
