Music In My Heart

This was such a fun project to make. I love these images from Artfulinkables. I started out with a triangle box, which I CASED from SCS. The rest was easy peasy. I used ribbon that I purchased from Artfulinkables. I colored with my Copic Ciao Markers. As always I used Swarovski Crystals on the music notes and a flower set of bling from Michaels. I put gold beads in the corners and on the bow. The box is filled with my fave Almond Kisses....and no, I did not eat them this time. I took them out of the box and gave them to my DD. Kristin has tons of ribbons and charms of all kinds. She also sells acrylic blocks in different sizes. So you really need to check it out. I have already made a list of all the other things I want to purchase at her store.

This precious pre-teen is so typical of any girl when it comes to listening to music. She was fun to color and just an all around fun image! I know I will use her when giving cards to the pre-teens in my family, especially for birthdays!

















There is also this pre-teen boy playing music in this set. PERFECT for a young guy. All teens love music and these images are too darn cute not to share for any day. Think about a card made just for encouragement...that is something I always did for my DD when she was growing up. I even put it in the mail so that when she got home from school, she would get the mail and find something special just for her. She still remembers those cards and how much it meant to know that I was thinking about her during the hard times of her teen years.

I used SU's Yo Yo yellow for the cardstock and music paper from my stash. SU's Tempting Turqoise and ribbon that matched from stash. Again, I colored with my Copic Ciao Markers. Used a MS punch for the corner and silver brads from SU, that I stickled.

















I cannot believe I left out the Musical Note Charm that is hidden, if you look, on the brad to the left...just another booboo on my very limited skills...LOL

Thanks for taking the time to visit me. If you click on either pic you can see the deets much better. Have a wonderful week !

I love the candy box with the girl listening to her I-Pod, I really do. We have so many little girls in my family and that is so reminiscent of when they were pre-teens, BUT I love the boy with the guitar card. Wow it really is a great card. I wish I knew a pre-teen boy who loved playing the guitar. My dad and older brother play the guitar and this card just "strikes a chord" with me.
