Lots to Share Today!

 Happy Sunday...I have a few things to share today!  First up, I'd thought I'd share the song Ryan's show choir performed at their concert on Thursday night.  I am of course bias, but it gives me chills.  They are a talented group of kids!  I love listening to them.  When the video pans to the left, Ryan is the first boy on the left hand side.  Here's the link if you're interested in listening.  Most of them are also in choral so they are wearing tuxedos...a good lucking bunch of kids!


And I have two cards to share with you...first up is a card for the PaperSmooches Sparks Challenge.   I was inspired by the colors and the sweet little bird so I used the gray and white with the patterned paper and the sweet little cardinal perched on the flourish.
 
And last but certainly not least, Michele shared this card on the CAS-ual Friday's Stamp blog yesterday...I love the floral stamps from the Truth Is set.  I made a border with them and added several little pearls. Love the result!

Happy Sunday my friends.

I really love how most of your Christmas cards use non-Christmas specific cards. They are so fresh and fun! And the pearls on those little flowers take the second card from CAS to CAS-tastic!
