♪ Make a Joyful Noise ♫
I knew exactly which stamp set to use for this... "Make a Joyful Noise" by one of my "alma maters," Layers of Color. It's a clear stamp set, so I curved the [straight] piano piece on the block, stamped and cut it out (2) for the sides of my sentiment. The musical swags in 2 corners where just what those corners needed, and I added the Treble Clef I cut out and then mounted on black c.s. and cut out for a mat.
The white "M" and "C" are for the lady's initials. The paper is from the free DP pack I got for buying $50 of SU! supplies during their Sale-a-bration promotion.
I forgot to take pictures of the inside, but I punched the inside corners with a fancy punch and stamped the straight piano keys down the outside edges.
Here's a couple more close-up pics of the front. I added stickles to the butterfly and li'l crystal twinkles to the prima flowers and swags. I am just a tad worried that if too many people handle this that some of the things might come off... so I advised my boss to maybe keep it on a table in a room and have people go in to sign it. Might keep it in better shape than passing it around, ya think?? LOL
Well, today was a good day. My youngest daughter went to a slumber party at a friend's house after school, so we took Carly to the park and played basketball-- good time to give her some pointers before her game tomorrow. She actually made a ton of baskets tonight!! One of the guys on her team showed up at the park too so we had a good time with them. Tomorrow's my birthday, and we don't really have "special" plans... doing the norm and watching the girls' BBall game in the morning. Maybe they'll make a basket especially for me *Ü* -- then maybe go out for lunch or dinner. What more could a mom want? =)
a SCAL maybe???!!!! LOL! (that's the Sure Cuts a Lot software that works with your cricut machine, in case you didn't know, heehee!) I'll keep ya posted on that one! ;-P Just kidding. I'm healthy and happy so all is good!
