Midway Reminder for Quirky Crafts Blog Challenge 13

Good Evening peeps from what has been a fabulous sunny hot day in Burntwood, Staffordshire. Im finally in a better mood as Im getting better!! Well, that is until I see a specialist asap.
Im not going to spill what's wrong with me yet, as Im not too sure myself. I don't think its life threatening anyway.
Im posting late with this as Ive been quite ill for almost 10 days (& nights) now & I had a commission order to finish off for a young lady's 21st Birthday on Tuesday. Im hoping that the boxed card arrives on time now as I had missed the last collection yesterday (Saturday).

This is a midway reminder post for Quirky Crafts Blog Challenge #13 Midway Reminder for Quirky Crafts Challenge #13 . The theme being a very well known song from the Walt Disney film "The Aristocats" called "Everyone Wants To Be A Cat".
Quirky Crafts are very proud to be sponsored by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More . Robyn is happy to award the winner their choice of 5 digital stamps and the 3rd place winner their choice of 3 digital stamps. 2nd place is also very kindly, sponsored by Digital Delights By Louby Lou, who are providing a $5 voucher to the second place winner.

The image I have used for this reminder is called "I Have A Crush On You" by Robyn's Fetish, coloured the cats with Promarkers, an antique white colouring pencil for the white cat (with a Warm Grey 1 from Promarkers for shading). I used a decorative tent fold ready made card for the base, (Ive had these in for months & this is the first time Ive used them). I downloaded the music from Google, leaving on the details of the gentlemen that wrote the words &music to the song "Everyone Wants To Be A Cat" from the Disney film The Aristocats. I added a small blue metallic bow tie for "Tom" and a pink metallic bow (in her hair) & collar for "Lady." I distressed the outer edges of the card, music & sentiment using a mixture of Scattered Straw & Bundled Sage from Tim Holtz range of Distress Inks. The coloured backing papers & sentiment are from my own stash.

I am entering this card into the I Love Promarkers Blog Challenge this week and the theme is TIME,
this card may not look like it has anything to do with TIME but to me, & countless others, you have to keep time when playing music!!!!
