MUSIC

I still need a couple of christmas cards so I have followed the theme on Less Is More's current challenge which is Music for my latest creations.


I stamped a very old music score by P.B. continually across the cardstock using my stamp positioner. As I can't read music I have no idea if it's a load of random notes or actually tuneful. I used Smokey Grey Versafine for stamping the music and embossed the sentiment with silver E.P. The star was cut from some old silver mirri card packaging with my XCut die and positioned with sticky fixers. I highlighted some of the music score with glitter using my quickie glue pen but it was impossibly hard to photograph.

Yesterday I received some good news and was in the mood to celebrate with a pint or three and with Christmas festivities taking place right outside the pub the atmosphere was buzzing. My brother was there,(fresh from his company xmas do and completely Brahms and Liszt,) together with my SIL and Dad. Here we all are.


Father Christmas graciously permitted me to 'pap' him whilst drinking a restorative cuppa outside his grotto. (After 4 hours of kids bending his ear I'm surprised it wasn't gin!)

Hope you have been "simply having a wonderful christmas time" Are you singing it?
Until next time, TFL and for all your lovely words.
