Still Funky at 50!

Morning Peeps,

I know I've been absent this week but I decided last week that my craft room needing sorting as everywhere I looked it just looked a real mess. So I purchased some A4 storage boxes and everything now has a home. I also filed all my stamps CD cases, popped a stamped image on the front of each CD and popped them into storage boxes on the shelfs too. So it looks tidy but kind of weird to work in, lol, and I'm sure I won't be able to find anything.

Anyway, enough of my waffling, today's card is my DT card for Craftalicious and the theme this week has been chosen by the fabulous Tasha and is "Green and Purple". Our sponsor this week is "Some Odd Girl" and the DT were fortunate to choose one of these really funky images. I have chosen 80's Kaylee as I had to do a birthday card for my SIL's 50th birthday and thought this would be ideal and she never really left the 80's, lol.  She's still grooving and still hitting the pubs! Let's hope she likes it and doesn't leave it in the pub!
