Les Miserables Birthday Card

On Saturday night, we went out for a meal for a friend of ours' birthday from our am dram society and then we all went to see the new Les Mis film!! It is amazing!! I love the music anyway but you must see it - it is a great film and the singing is superb!! The songs are still whirring around my head ..

Anyway, I thought the occasion called for a themed birthday card and here it is:

I do struggle with mens cards as I may have said many times but I really enjoyed making this one. One of the songs from Les Mis is called 'One Day More' so I slightly changed it for this card.

And Bob (the birthday boy) loved it!! As long as I make someone smile with my cards I am happy!!

Anyway I hope to be around a bit more now as I have been somewhat AWOL from blogland for the most part over the last few months with one thing and another. I am feeling much better than I was and hope to get some crafting in at some point. I have reduced my DT commitments as I was struggling to keep up so I am now just doing the Joanna Sheen DT and running my challenge blog - Songbird Challenges! So I think that is more manageable for me at the moment.

I am also rehearsing for Jesus Christ Superstar at the moment, which is showing in March at our local theatre and I am loving every minute of rehearsals!!

And thank you to Carol and Bunny for suggesting I download Google Chrome - I can now upload my pics again!! Yay!!

Happy Crafting!
