Inspired By a Song @ OBAG

Hello Blogland it's my favourite challenge today at
and I chose it LOL!

Inspired By A Song

Doncha just love it!! I do, it makes me laugh out loud when I check out everyone's posts! And boy oh boy is it good to have some laughter in your life! and singing, not that I can sing lol I'm tone deaf!

I went to the Theatre at Leicester the other day with some friends and I took my mum for her birthday. We went to see 'Hot Stuff' it was all 70's music and everyone, and I mean everyone, was singing and dancing all the way through it! If it comes to a town near you go and see it, it was a real trip down memory lane and non stop laughs!

Here is my little offering, I'm showing my age with my song choice!!
My dad was always singing Dean Martin songs when I was growing up, and my mum's a Frank Sinatra fan so I love a bit of 'Rat Pack'

Inspired by Dean Martin's
'Little Old Wine Drinker Me'
I'd made this card ages ago when I got the sponsor mixed up (I thought it was Bugaboo) and it isn't!! We have a super sponsor

The Paper Nest

Check out the main challenge blog for all the details
and some super inspiration to get you singing lol

Remember to be in with a chance of winning the prize on offer you must use something that is at least 6 months old and be sure to tell us what it is in your blog post

That's it from me today, I have a mountain of washing and ironing to get through!
