Now and Forever (and Collin's Drum Recital)



I've updated my stamps for sale page.  If you are interested, please click here.

Happy Tuesday friends.  Popping in with a quick card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.  When I was working on some other cards this weekend and had my die cuts out I was inspired to use these WPlus9 die cuts for the current sketch challenge. I love the touch of patterned paper and the funky vibe it gives to the card.


On Sunday, Collin had his drum recital. He is super shy so before he went up he told me he was going to look out the window instead of at the people in the audience. The rehearsal was held at Graeter's (a fabulous Cincinnati based ice cream shop).  Each of the kids in the recital got free ice cream after they played. He did an awesome job.  His teacher videotaped him in class so if you're interested you can check out what he played on You Tube.  I love his sweet little smiles when he plays one of the parts that is a bit harder!  As always, we're so lucky to have family close by to come cheer him on.

aw, congrats to Collin! Drummers are cool, kind of like the goalie on a hockey team...the solid rock of a team/band! Love those two strips of patterned paper! They do add so much fun and then some! ox

Your card is fantastic! I love the design and how you used the WPlus9 birds. That patterned paper is so perfect for the trees. Colin? Well he is adorable and so super talented. Great song choice and he has the sweetest smile at the end!

Pinning and calling this one as winning, Lynn! I just purred with pleasure when I saw it!! Thanks for sharing Colin's recital, too. Little Henry just got a junior drum set, so I'll send him the link. It's so cool when they find that thing they are passionate about!! Hugs, Darnell

You are so good at using small amounts of patterned paper, we both know my stash isn't so small and I don't use much at all.
