Musical notes

Good morning all - and what a lovely sunny morning it is!  I've just returned from a mini camping trip with my lovely hubby and son, and our good friends Tris and Clare with their little boy Blake.  To recover from this, today is a non stop craft day (well apart from an hourly break to hang out the washing generated from afore mentioned camping trip!) as I try out some new goodies purchased from The Range yesterday.

Thank you to everyone that commented last week, and especially for all the good wishes sent for Harrison.  He has now fully recovered from his Chicken Pox and is a right as rain again (and causing much mischief as ever!).

Apologies to all about the word verification tool, I didn't even realise it was switched on.  I think I've now turned it off, but I'd appreciate whoever is first to comment if you could let me know if its worked. Thanks for letting me know!

So onto this weeks creation.  I made this to enter:

Sketch and Stash challenge 120. and
Lili's little fairies - No flowers.

I used some old music sheets for the background, printed some musical notes from the internet and cut them out.  I then stamped my Lili of the valley image using stazon and water-coloured it  (a change from my usual promarkers!)  I then matted and layered using red and black card, added a sentiment and ribbon and stuck everything together - et voila, another card finished!

Hope you like!
