"Hey Kid, Rock and Roll..."

...Ooh My Soul"
I recently joined The Outlawz Challenge group and made this card for their Alcohol Marker Challenge. Everything is coloured with my beautiful Copics, such great pens for colouring with, their nibs are just perfect for detail work or if you want to add strands of hair etc. I have been buying them steadily on and off for the last two years or so and I still don't have the full range of colours but with time and (small, regular) amounts of money I hope to get them all plus refills, but that will take a heck of a lot longer!
The background of the card is an old MIC one and the young fella is a Kenny K I have had for well over a year now, apart from the small brass rivets and Sizzix letters on top of a Marianne die, that's pretty much it for this creation, minimal for me I suppose!
There's not much else to tell you really, it has been a very quiet week at home. I have decided to go back to work though. I have been waiting for some therapy but it hasn't appeared yet and I am really getting sick of waiting for it, I just have to bite the bullet I suppose and see how things go when I get back there. I did have a panic attack last week when Jo and I went to Let's Create for their grand re-opening but it's the only one in weeks now so I hope those are behind me, if not then I have no idea how I will handle it!
So, hope you are well, the weather isn't too bad at the mo is it? Not high Summer but still not Autumnal so still sleeping with the thin duvet on.
Have a great rest of the week, see you on Sunday,

  1. This is such a fun card, Andy! So glad you shared it over at The Outlawz! Fun images and terrific coloring and design! I hope all goes well with your return to work. I am still pondering my return. I'm going to try and cover all those elusive doctors' appts. before I even think about it and I still have things to deal with for my Mom's stuff anyway. Let us know how it goes!

  3. Oh this is so fabulous! Love the blue streaks in the hair, so cool! Great card design. I haven't seen that music border, hmmm, I need to find that one, lol.
    Darn those panick attacks. I have my last one in college. It's a total fight or flight moment and I decided to hang onto the desk and tell myself it won't last forever. Eventually they just went away. Hope you feel better soon.
