Once I saw the theme this week at Less Is More, I kept hearing the words to John Miles' amazing song - if you don't know it go listen HERE !! (Showing my age now aren't I? LOL)
Anyway back to the challenge - the theme (if you hadn't guessed) was Music.
From a 7 year old singing the second verse of 'In the Bleak Midwinter' solo at a school carol service to Handel's Messiah with the Merseyside Youth Orchestra at Manchester Free Trade Hall and the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool in my teens to listening to my wonderful OH playing his piano (and keyboards), music has been very special to me throughout my life.
So with my passion for music it is suprising that I possess very few musical stamps - but it didn't matter as I had already formulated in my head what I wanted to do - which is a first for me as usually I'm agonising for hours!!
Random musical notes stamped round the edge of a 6 x 6 card.
The image (printed onto glossy white card) just shouts ' Joy' at me somehow - the sheer happiness of having music which makes you want to dance wherever you are and whatever the weather - and the sentiment seemed to fit perfectly.
Since I have taken the photo (light was going so rushed to snap the pic) - I have added some really tiny white gems to the points of the umbrella (I had some 'raindrop' shaped gems but they were far too big and looked ridiculous!!) - the tiny ones added just a touch of sparkle and hopefully look like raindrops!
