Inspired By Music - We Stamp On Sundays

This weeks challenge over at Adventures In Stamping was a mani inspired by music. I was not thrilled about this challenge as it seemed harrrrrrd ;( I listened to all my favourite songs, Googled the album artwork of every band I like.. And just got bummed out by how my good ideas would only work if I bought new image plates, and that was just not happening :P So I didn't really push myself, but I loved the outcome, though I almost feel like I should have spaced the cherries out more, or only did one cherry.

The band I chose is Cherry Ghost. They've been a favourite of mine for something like five years. My personal email address comes from one of their songs, and they are incredible live. There's something I truly love about Simon Aldred's accent.

This is gonna be a scheduled post as It's going to be Earth Day, I'm not gonna do the usual of spending a few hours after posting to read blogs, I'll just catch up on Monday! I also had a pretty horrific Friday, so I've spent all day today (Saturday) feeling sorry for myself, having lots of hot chocolate, watching goofy films to try and cheer myself up and indulging in craptastic food. Not paying attention to any calories means Sunday will mainly be spent on wii fit and dance games to try and make myself feel better for a crap diet week, and an even worse Friday.

I shall leave you with a funny pic of Cheese, using her favourite method of entrance - my bedroom window. Look at her little cheetah belly! & That's how dirty the window gets in a day when it's raining outside.

    1. Hot chocolate really does soothe the soul ^-^
      Thanks! & Yes, we got her and Pickle at the same time, and when we got home I gave our older cat a piece of cheese, and Cheese bit my finger and made me bleed cause she thought I had some cheese for her!

      Weirdly now, she goes nuts for chocolate now instead of cheese - if you open a chocolate bar.. she's right there; staring at you hehehe.
