Music to My Ears!

     It's Friday again so you probably know what that means if you visit my blog regularly.  :-D  This week at QKR Stampede we're giving you an optional theme of "Music" but if you don't want to use it, you're welcome to just enter under our usual "Anything Goes" theme.

     I had two favorite musical images and couldn't decide between them so combined them into one card; "Cat Calling" and "Country Crooning."  Now they look like they're having a party, don't they?

     I colored all of them with my ProMarkers and cut them with a plain rectangle die from QuicKutz.  Both background papers came from an old Recollections stack and the ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

     I did it as a pretty CAS design because I knew it would end up in my stash of masculine cards.

  1. Cutest western "choral group" ever, Connie! I can just imagine the delightful sound of this trio making music LOL Our German Shepherd often "howl-cries" at the fence when his daddy leaves him to run errands. It's a song of sorts. Your background is fabulous, and the colors are happy and bright! Great card, Connie! xx

  2. Hi Connie, now I am loving this card with the singing cats! I bet they would sound a bit off key LOL! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
