The Happy Wanderer.

Good morning, pull up a pew and put your feet up for a little while!

I plan on doing just that today as a result of the abandoned teachers protest........kids are at school and I just might do......nothing!

Except for chatting on here a little and posting pictures of pretty things of course.

A card today with a coloured image - Saturated Canary, and Authentique papers no less.........I guess things are pretty much back to normal around here, can't let go of my faves!

Here goes.


This little lady will be heading into the current challenge over on the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog........song inspiration.  My song irritation inspiration is as follows:

I made the card for a girlfriend at work who's Birthday was yesterday, and who happens to make the 5 hour train journey back home  to see her folks quite frequently.  She just happened to be taking said journey yesterday on her Birthday, so I thought this image was quite appropriate.

As I was making it, for some reason that really annoying song from my childhood 'The Happy Wanderer' popped into my head.......know the one......."I love to go a wandering along the mountain track".........yep wander them every day........."and as I go I love to sing, my knapsack on my back"......never leave home without one!........."Valdereee Valderaaaah Valdereeee Valderaah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha"........I really should end it there.....it gets no better!

The reason it's so annoying (apart from the obviously irritating lyrics!) is that as a child, I was forced to learn and sing this song at school during music class for a whole hour.  It's one of those that permanently lodges itself into the deep, dark recesses of your brain and resurfaces at every opportunity, so you find yourself humming it!  After 3days when you finally thought you'd banished it, music class rolled around again and you were back to square one!

Anyhow enough of that......I'm already starting to hum in my head.

The layout for this card is inspired by Sketch #83 over at The Deconstructed Sketch, and colouring of the cutie is with Copics.


That's about if from me.  I'm off to find some creative inspiration floating around here somewhere, in the hope that I can make something worth showing on here next week.

Have a great weekend,
Jayne.x.
