Kathleen said...

Fabulous card Vicky, I am hoping that this image comes out as die cut by the Dome on the 12th June as it would be perfect for my best mate's Grandson birthday card on 29 th of June as he is going to learn to play the guitar and I really won't use the stamp that much but the die cut set would be perfect.
Hope you have a good evening with your Grandad's birthday celebrations.
