Let there be music

Hello there and welcome to my room .Thank you for calling in and I hope that you are enthused by my effort to use up all the bit and pieces from freebies included in a magazine . I have found the challenge to be quite a blast as well as a challenge .

Here I am again with another card to share . Again this is created using the freebies from the same magazine as the last two makes . I think this one could be for a teenager or retro card  for an older person .What do you think ? Do you remember the Juke box ? 
I cut the piano strip and the background music  from  the paper sheets . all the rest of the images are die cut images popped on with foam dots .

And the inside with some of the free paper 

 Really happy with this one . 
Stay safe and stay well . 

             Catch you again soon ,cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .

Good Vibes

 Hi there , Visitor . Thanks for calling in  and welcome to my room . Thank you to those  who left kind words on my last post and I will be sure to return the visit soon . 

Well, today Hubby and I had our first Covid vac jab .So far so good with no reaction yet . Not that we are expecting any of course as none of our family or friends have indicated they had problems . Another good thing about today is that the sun  shone for most of it . I also saw some early blossoms on our gopher outing this morning so I am wondering if this a sign of an early Spring? We hope so as we are both so over Winter. 

Tonight I am posting/sharing another card using those magazine freebies . If you would like to see the first card I created using this music themed freebie stamp and paper  ,then just scroll down . Actually this was a very generous freebie as it also contained some topper die cuts too . 

This time my base card is Bermuda Bay with a layer of retired  SU Whisper White trimmed so that there is just a smidgen of a border . Again a smaller piece of fabulous patterned paper from the magazine is the final layer. 

The records are die cuts which I have added over  images of records with foam dots while adhering sentiment and guitar die cuts   flat .

And for the inside I created the sentiment using  three  stamps from the free set .

  Please be here and  on the lookout tomorrow night because I am sure that there will be another  music themed card to share  .How many do you think that I can create by only adding card stock? 

                                       Till then .

              Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .

Best hit song ever

 Hi there , welcome to my room . Thank you for calling in . 

I do hope that you are all keeping safe and are well .

Life has been so crazy for quite a while now and I don't know about you but I am finding it

 harder to see  the bright side of things . Don't get me wrong because I really do appreciate 

all that I have .Family and friends ,cyber chats and photos shared . A roof over my head , food 

to eat and a  warm bed to sleep in .

 Just hoping and praying that this virus will leave us sooner rather that later .

Went to a news agency on Friday and bought some craft magazines ,something I have

 not done for  months . I think it was just the kind of therapy I needed .

Most craft magazines have some freebies included . So while I am enthused I am going to see how

 many  cards I can make from one set of freebies. 

Tonight,  a birthday card for a male family member .

I began with  a black square card base , added some scrap of  striped DSP from my stash

 then using foam dots I adhered the two images as shown .

For the inside 

The insert consists of a piece of  Daffodil Delight card and a smaller piece of Very Vanilla ,

on which I stamped a greeting from the set of included  freebie stamps . 

So delighted with this gem of a card I think I will find a challenge to enter . 

         Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne
