Good Morning!

Good Morning Everyone

I hope that you all had a lovely long weekend and that you were able to spend time doing lots of things you love to do.
We spent the weekend with our very dear friends Caroline and John - Mark and John were busy sorting DIY stuff (boys things!) and Me and Caroline were 'having' to spend time in her craft room playing with lots of bits and pieces we have been meaning to do for ages.  A great time had by all!!

Today I have a really simple card to show you - one that I made some weeks ago for the Golden Age shows on C and C with Tattered Lace.
I sometimes find matching perfect background papers to fit the occasion a problem (even though I have a room and a shop full!! (as Mark would say!) so when I am out and about I pick up wrapping paper and know that it will come in at some point.  Well, this music paper certainly did on this occasion as I had a sample to make using the trumpet and I decided to use blocks of the paper to make a background, matting and layering them with black so that they pop out.
The stunning oval die that the Trumpet is sat on is the Eleganza die.

As you can see I made it into an invitation idea but this could easily have any sentiment on it for whatever occasion it is for.
Simple but effective I think.  What do you think? I would love to hear from you and let me know what you did at the weekend.
Hope that you can pop in again on Thursday for another little idea.
Thankyou, as always,  for popping in and 
Bye for now
