If Music be the Food of Love... Play On


It's surprising how long it takes to get back into the swing of things after a holiday. I'm still making my way through the ironing mountain. Wednesday we had to go into the city to do some bits and pieces and of course by the time we had lunch and got everything done that was Wednesday taken care of. We have several TV programmes we recorded which we are gradually getting through. We finally managed to view the holiday photos last night so once they are on the computer I will share a few of them on here. I am managing a bit of crafting and bloghopping too and gradually getting back into the rhythm of creating, posting and linking challenges. I have so many things to play with as I went on holiday just after Ally Pally, bought a few things on holiday and have some new stash this week with Birthday vouchers and money.

So onto my card which is an 8" card using one of the large LOTV diecuts and an LOTV sentiment stamp. I've teamed it with Marianne Designs Eline's Huis Winter pale pastels papers. I've used Core'dinations and kraft card and my old faithful MS heart punch. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, pins from The Hobby House, cherry blossom from Wild Orchids, flower is a new one from Prima. The MB die virtuoso music arrived yesterday from My Crafty Heart and no sooner had it arrived than I opened the packet and used it as it went perfectly with this card. I can see so many uses for this die and if you are looking for MB dis at great prices with great customer service then hop over to My Crafty Heart.
