1 for the boys!

Hi Everyone, isn't it a beautiful day? Well it is here in the North!
It's taken me all day to post this Kanban card I made a few days ago lol! I am so tired.
My friend took me to Metro Arena last night. Thin Lizy were on first then Guns n Roses. GNR didn't come on until 10.35 they did a 3 hour show so it was 2.30 when I got home. 
We weren't allowed anything in a plastic bottle & apparently no one was allowed in who looked like Slash! On Axles orders!! 
It was a brilliant show and Axle did excellent considering he had a fractured shoulder. 
I wonder how long he was in Newcastle A&E? Well he is a Diva lol! 
Anyhow enough waffle from me!
I made a 8x8 gatefold card using Kanban topper & backing paper from Gentlemen's adventures.

Blimey that got me thinking. I have been inspired by so many crafter's I couldn't mention them all.

I am especially inspired by Chloe from Stamps By Chloe.
Chloe designs her own stamps & A5 Texture plate.
I have the pleasure of making cards for Chloe's Create & Craft shows.
I love Kanban. Linnie's gorgeous designs from Whoopsi daisy designs
Although I have often bought stamps it's Chloe who has given me the confidence to use them.
