Do You Have Music in Your Heart?!

Pop guitar

Growing up there was always music! My dad had a country western band and when he wasn’t playing his guitar for a dance, he was playing for pleasure, OR teaching someone to play, OR singing, OR whistling a tune! Always, ALWAYS there was music!

He’s been gone many years now, but every now and then I’ll think of an old song he sang and many happy memories!

Here’s a card from the Sketch Challenge today on Splitcoast.

This is ODBD Music Speaks on Ornate Hearts die. I stamped the bird again (not inking it up so it would be lighter) and colored with Copics, hand cut and popped it up. The quote is embossed on Blushing Rose dp. I cut the dp down to fit inside the dotted border of Faithful Fish Pattern die, and couldn’t get away with not using my favorite vine from Fancy Foliage.

Music makes you happy… you should always have a tune in your heart!

Thanks for stopping by today!
