PBSC/ My son on BBC Radio 2 / Singalong Saturday

Good morning my fellow bloggies and how are you all today? Looks as though we are in for a nice day so the washing is on the line and the next load is already on. I hope you all manage to squeeze a little crafting time in and come play with us on PBSC. The theme this week is fab ....... SWIRLS!

I have used this fab paper from Designer Extreme Volume II CD by Bearly Mine Designs and it is just perfect for this weeks challenge. I adore purples and lilacs so used this colourway through the whole card.

The swirls were punched with my EK success punch which I love!!!! Finishing it all off with some scrummy flowers and little gems from my stash.

Even an insert from me this week and why not ..... I used the Designer Inserts Extreme CD from BMD. So easy - just print, trim and stick .... perfect every time :o)
EDITED - I have had a few questions asking me if this is a new nestie - the answer is no - it is part of the insert design ... now isn't that clever!

First of all I would just like to tell you about my son (again .... sorry!). The brass band he plays with were on BBC Radio 2 last night so of course I have to share this with you. Here is the link to hear them play . You will need to move the start slider to 6 minutes .... the previous programme is on at the start of the i player

Time for another blast from the past .... turn up the volume girls and have a good old sing ...... enjoy
