Disco is alive and well - Kenny K Krafty Girls challenge + Bling it on challenge

Good morning everyone...it was a beautiful sunny day yesterday and although still a bit chilly it was lovely to feel the sun on my face, isn't it amazing how a little sun can lift everyones mood, there were a lot of smiley people about for a change...we went shopping yesterday as my gorgeous Dad needed a new kettle, we looked a few places but he was moaning a bit about prices, which I agreed with it seemed mad to spend £50 on a kettle... so we went to Sainsburys and got him one for under a fiver would you believe and lets face it he isn't the type to go for something to match his kitchen and it does the same job also when it breaks down you don't mind getting another for that price...my Dad had a chuckle when the girl told him to keep his receipt as it was his guarantee...he thought it was brilliant...right my card for today is for the Kenny K's Krafty Girls challenge which is a fab sketch by the super talented Rach and for a brand new challenge blog called Bling it on Challenges which is an Anything goes with an added option of adding charms and there are some amazing prizes...isn't this Bling Baby image from Kenny K wonderful and she just screams the era of Disco to me so I blinged her up and coloured her with distress inks, the fabulous paper is from American Crafts A La Mode collections, its called Neapolitan...it reminded me of those light up disco floors, for those of you old enough to remember them...I used these two metal flower charms I found in my stash and some wonderful twill ribbon and a bow...oh no its the Supermarket shop with Dad today, I hope the suns shining again so there's no market rage...whatever your up remember to smile at people it really makes their day

My Mum is just like your dad, doesn't see the point in spending loads and loves a bargain! Have a good day at the shops with him! The sun brings out my need to hang washing out so my washer had been on since 7am but it does lift the spirits, sun and a full washing line. Your card is lovely and the stamp puts me in mind of a photo of David Cassidy (big teenage crush)in the Alps wearing those big shaggy boots - did I pester my folks for a pair... did I get them? Did I heck! Hugs Hazel x
