Just A Note for DCM




On daring cardmakers this week the dare is to use anything musical. The paper here is Que Sera by K & Co which I only bought today, couldn't wait to try it. The music paper has been hanging around waiting to be used for ages, I tore it and inked the edges. I found a tiny metal music note, and the truly gorgeous flowers are by Prima. The crushed velvet ribbon was a dollar bin find at Michaels. The sentiment stamp was a cheapie from Walmart.
We are starting the big pack-up here. Mike has been and bought a ladder and all of a sudden is obsessed with doing stuff six feet in the air, so all the air-con filters have been changed, the light fittings washed etc etc, the trouble is all these jobs need two people and I just don't have the same fascination with the new ladders as he has. Maybe tomorrow he'll move on to a new toy.

kisatrtle said...

it's very classy. I like it and I'm dying to know who you send all these cards too because I haven't gotten one lately. **smile**

Dawny P said...

En, this is just stunning!!!! Just absolutely beautiful - love it. PMPL at Mike and his ladder toy!!! Boys and their toys eh! I wish mine would get fascinated with a ladder, cos then he could clean the windows and clear the gutters!!!! And if he got fed up of that, he couddl always try the hoover out for size!!! Sadly, there is as much chance of that as me winning the lottery. If it aint got a beak and 2 wings, he doesn't even notice it, bless him lol xxx Hope you are well and let me know when you are back hunny xxxx
