I grew up in a musical family and spent many holiday seasons singing with groups of carolers through my church and my friends' churches. Then I joined Sweet Adelines and my choruses would make the holidays bright with Christmas shows and, yes, caroling adventures! On one such trip when I lived in Eau Claire WI, we visited a locked psychiatric ward in a local hospital. One of the patients used to be a choral conductor and she started directing us!! Our chorus director stepped aside and let the patient do her thing - such a thrill for everyone and very heartwarming to see her respond to the music!
I made this card today using a fun singing dog image from Inky Antics Punny Christmas Pups clear set:
I stamped one dog, masked him off and stamped the other two to make a doggie trio. I colored them with Copic markers, trimmed them out and mounted with foam tape onto a Hero Arts Christmas tag (covered up the hole of the tag with a doggie paw). Hero Arts makes these yummy folded cards too - this one is grenadine from the Blush set. I stamped and white embossed the Inky Antics sentiment from the same set. Then I stamped it with Hero's Envelope Liner Background, inked with Tim Holtz Festive Berries Distress Ink. The paper is from Basic Grey's Evergreen 6x6 paper pad - it's a diagonal paper but I cut it down to a straight stripe. Sequins come from Lawn Fawn.
I have another card but didn't get a good photo today. You'll probably see me back later in the week if I succeed in getting one. Hope you're having a crafty week and thanks for stopping!!
