I'm going to see Bon Jovi!!!

Yep - I'm off tomorrow and heading to Sydney to see Bon Jovi in concert.  Am totally stoked (not least because I'm going with a friend and we're leaving the fellas and the kids behind - whoooo hooo!)

So, in anticipation of not being able to post for a couple of days, if not more, I have put together another card.  Still another of the talented Mo Manning's many offerings - this one is part of a set: North Pole Employees.  Just too cute to resist for this holiday season!

Don't ask me what Copics I used.  The cardstock is SU! Taken with Teal, the aqua background paper is from a 6x6 paper pad by Black Market Paper Society called "Lucky n Love" and the other background paper has been done using Adirondack ink "Wild Plum" and a SU! jumbo roller "Petals", and then smudged slightly (it's not quite so intense as it looks).

I have also just received my first three Tilda stamps, one of which (Silent Night Tilda) I just had to have once I had seen Carole over at Apples & Pears use her so many times - go have a look: Apples & Pears.  Isn't her colouring amazing?  I'm jealous as all get out, but it gives me something to aspire to *grin*.

So there you go - an update for the weekend, while I go paint the town red in Sydney.  Wish me luck - Sydney had an incredible amount of rain today - from what Will was telling me, two nasty storm cells met in the middle and then tried to float the city into the harbour.  Hopefully it will have sorted itself out by tomorrow, both for the trip up there (I'm driving) and for the concert (at the Sydney Football Stadium).

I might wander over to the Bureau of Meteorology site and have a look...

Happy crafting,


  1. Oh so envious! Have an absolute blast at the concert Bron. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment, I really appreciate it.

    As to your creation above! Love, Love, Love the plum and teal combo, that would have to be my all time favourite colour combination and you've used it to perfection with that elf. Too Cute!

  2. Hi Bron
    Love that you have joined the "blog-o-sphere" and like Kasey very jealous of your trip to Bon Jovi! Have a great time.

  3. Hi Bron, fantastic colour combo on your card, your image looks great too. Hope you had fun at the concert, you'll have to tell us all about it. So glad you got that Silent Night stamp, can't wait to see how you use her, and thanks for your nice comments about my colouring of her and for the link to my blog too.
