A Quick Note

Hi all!

Whew! My days have been full - how about yours? My son was home againg this weekend. I bought a new Rav4 - my 'momma mobile' is 11 years old and has almost 152K miles on it. I was ready for new wheels. I also sold my minivan over the weekend. Sunday we celebrated my mom's 89th birthday and I got three loads of laundry done for the boy to take back to school. I know, he's spoiled. He's my only one and I do enjoy doting. In my craft room - and kitchen and dining room - I've been diligently working on a tutorial for Craft Project Central. They asked me to be a guest designer for the month of November. I will be sharing my project and other Craft Central projects for the month on my blog. I was a bit stressed about coming up with a project worthy of a guest designer! I like the end product and because of the multiples I ended up making, I have several Christmas gifts ready to go!

So, for my quick note today, I cased a very fun card I saw on Pinterest. I love music; it has always been a part of my life, from piano and strings in grade school to band and choir in high school. Through college and beyond, I made great extra money singing for weddings and funerals. For years I was very involved in community theater. Unfortunately, several years ago I went through some major stresses in my life and lost my vocal range. I went to doctors, speech and massage therapists with no changes. That is a loss I regularly mourn. But enough of that, back to the fun card!

Wouldn't four of these with envelopes tied in black ribbon make a perfect gift for a music teacher, your church choir director or organist or any music enthusiast? The notes were made from the 1" circle punch and I cut the stems from snips of Basic Black Cardstock.
My staff was a snap to make using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. This bundle is so versatile. If you've not yet purchased it - don't wait! 

That's it for today folks. Stay tuned for my second post this week. I'll be sharing a video on how to make a star fold card like the one I featured last week in the Pal's Blog Hop.
