And all that jazz...

 Good morning,  I originally scheduled this post for this morning- should have been on our way to Germany for a river cruise - unfortunately the holiday has been cancelled due to the heavy rains that Europe has had- the boat we should have been on is stuck somewhere impassable.
We only found out late Wednesday evening so still sulking about it- I was looking forward to a whole week of not cooking!
At least I hadn't packed, that would have made it even worse.

This card is for our new challenge at Crafty Catz, the optional twist chosen by Bridget is 
our sponsor for this fortnight is 

I used a pre coloured digi I already owned, he's one of a set called Musical Rabbits, and just so cool!
I printed him onto a music sheet background, added a die cut 'Happy Birthday', the rest of the sentiment is computer generated. A quick and easy make for a music loving friend!
Please check out the Challenge Blog to enjoy the lovely creations from the rest of the team.
Remember Crafty Catz is an Anything Goes Challenge, you don't have to follow the theme to join in.
Thanks for visiting

Great masculine card Chris, super image and design. So sorry about your river cruise being cancelled no wonder you are disappointed. Hope the weekend is good for you with some sunshine.

Super design, Chris. What a fun image.
Sorry to hear about your cancelled river cruise because of the rain. It was the opposite in June 2022, our Rhine cruise was interrupted because of river levels dropping to 18” in places because of the intense heat. We were taken by coach for five hours, missing out the middle section of the river and swapping over to a different ship for the last part of the journey. The following week the cruises were cancelled. We certainly are getting some crazy weather.

What a cool rabbit! He looks great on the music and your background is just perfect and the sentiment.
So sorry about your cruise. How awful for you.

Love your jazz bunny printed on music paper and the black and white background is fabulous, but I'm so sorry your trip got cancelled, what a bummer, I would be sulking too, try to have a good weekend..

I'm sorry to hear about the cancellation of your cruise, and hope that you can take advantage of it another time, and enjoy yourself far better than it would have been this time (is that possible?). Your musical bunny is DARLING, especially with the black and white, Chris. How fun! Hoping you will soon be able to enjoy a fun holiday. hugs, de

How diassapointing to have your holiday cancelled ! a great musical card for a male, looks like he is having fun x

brenda said...

Goodness me Chris, how very disappointing for you, know how much you were looking forward to it. Years ago we had a Far East trip cancelled last minute as the UK airline went bust overnight. I do hope they compensate you adequately.

As an aside, you card is absolutely lovely and such fun.
