DT post for the Crafty Pad: Inspired by a song!

Good morning all of my friends and followers old and new! Hope you are well. I'll be at bootcamp when this posts - fingers crossed its not as wet as it was last week! Had a good one today - followed by a 50th anniversary 'do' at school and a kiddies party. Busy day!!!

Over at the Crafty Pad today there's a new challenge starting called 'inspired by a song'. You can see the deets by pressing the challenge link above. There's a prize on offer from our fabulous sponsors craftyribbons

 And here's our prize:

My song I chose was 'Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon' by The Kinks. I used Albert-Snoozin from The Crafty Pad.

He's a fabulous image and I really enjoyed colouring him! I've gone simple on this card - I think the image is enough!

I'd like to enter albert for the following challenges:
allsortschallenge: Inspired by a song
sweetstampinchallengeblog: How Charming
craftpunked: Hobbies
promarkerchallenge: CAS
polkadoodle Inspired by a song

Have a fabulous Sunday - hope to see you tomorrow with a CSD card - thanks for popping by today - I do appreciate your comments!  And don't forget the month long Think Pink challenge also running on the Crafty Pad - and the separate month long one on dawn's Blog! Hugs Rachel xx
