Do What Makes Your Heart Happy...TIME OUT #13, CAS(E) this Sketch #91

Hello!

  • Weekend with my family...priceless! 
  • A shopping spree at a newly discovered distributor...awesome!  
  • The snow that's been falling (we're under a snowfall warning) since Monday morning...gahhh!!!! 
That, in a nutshell, sums up my last few days!

I'll be sharing more details about my darling niece and nephew - Ms. T begins ballet lessons tomorrow - in future posts Being with her and her mom when she bought her new ballet shoes, body suit and tights on Sunday was simply fabulous. She is going to be so darn cute; I'm excited to see pictures and, of course, performances, when next I visit (only three weeks...).  As for my shopping trip....I may have gone hog-wild crazy...stay tuned for the scoop!

The snow. Don't. Want. To. Talk About. It.  Forecast is a for return to 'summer-ish' temps on the weekend. Sure hope so!

Right now, however, I'm crazy-maniac dashing in with a card for TIME OUT #13, and its inviting inspiration phrase from Twelfh Night (the high school English teacher part of me smiled when I read that...speaking of teacher, I have more news on that little facet of my life to share later, too): 'If music be the food of love play on'

I drew on CAS(E) this Sketch #91 for the layout


A trial run of a new purchase is making a debut - namely the amazing shimmery "Joy" paper used for the treble clef...It's a WOW!!


NOTE: Honoured and delighted to receive an HM over at CAS(E)) this Sketch...THANK YOU!!

NOTE: Happy dancing and honoured to receive the Top at TIME OUT Challenge #13. THANK YOU!!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

Ohhh, a dancer! My niece is a dancer and it fantastic going to see her concerts. When they are so young they are such a joy to watch. lol We had summer on Monday and winter on Tuesday back to spring today...who knows what will happen tomorrow? Then again, it's Melbourne so anything is possible. Mr Mojo is your best buddy as this card is amazing. Love how the red treble clef just pops off the page. The cute little heart on the end is beautiful. The whole card is just fantastic!
