Clear Dollar Stamps August Blog Hop!


Welcome to the August edition of the Clear Dollar Stamps Monthly Blog Hop!!! This month, we bring you A Few of Our Favorite Things. :) You should be coming here from seeing Karen's beautiful work. If you didn't, you'll want to start back at Clearly iStamp to get in on all the amazing blogs in the hop - and to get as many chances as you can to win!!!


This was a very difficult theme for me. I have SO many 'favorite' things - scripture, paper crafting, photography, children and many other things in my life. But, I finally settled on my old standby ... MUSIC! It's always there for me ... always soothing me .... encouraging me .... lighting the fire of my mojo .... reminding me of my faith ... making me laugh .... letting me cry. Music surrounds me in all that I do. I don't know what I would do without that precious gift that God has given me. So, I used music for my card.


And this is the inside of the card. I wanted to spice it up a little and make it special.

Card Recipe :

stamps - Sweet Symphony
paper - black, white, music dp
ink - black, white
Copics - R46
accessories - Elegant Accents Dies, black brad, music brads, ribbon, flowers, pop dots, corner rounder



Now, what are you suppose to do?? Well, after you comment on my blog, you need to head right on over to Laurie's fabulous blog!
