Rock Around The Clock

Hi everyone today sees the launch of the new weekly challenge over at Crafting by Designs the theme this week is Rock Around The Clock and we are very lucky to have two sponsors

Prize: winner choice of 2 digis
Prize: 5 digis
My choice for my Design Team card was an image from Dr.Digi called Metal Mick this is a real fun image and I enjoyed making the card but as I'm sure you'll all agree not quite my normal style. However it's always good to do different so hope you enjoy him and it makes you start signing Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley and The Comets certainly takes me back a few era's to my youth club days.
