Musical challenge at FSC

I am taking the chance to build my Christmas card collection by another one this week with my DT piece for the musical challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.


A music paper from MME for the background stamped with holly from Tim's mini holidays, a La Blanche stamp with musical notation and a music score die from Memory Box. Add to them some red Stickles for the holly berries, papers for the collage layers and some embellishments and sentiment.


Looking forward to seeing you over at the FSC challenge blog for a fortnight of musical fun. Even if you can't enter this time round, it is always worth taking a peek at the fabulous inspiration from the most amazing team.


Have a great Sunday, hopefully there is some crafty time available to you to have some creative moments.

A magical musical piece, Brenda! Love the music notes and festive berries... it's cold enough here now to feel like this season is near upon us. I really like the pan pastels below on the village/fireworks below, too.

Thanks so much for your kind notes and checking up on me. All is well now and back home safe and sound.
