Just a (set of) Note(cards)

Hi, Friends.....

Well, in between my three-year-old granddaughter's forays of chicken chasing and cat tormenting, I managed to make this project for the MFP Friends of Speedy TV Notecard Set Challenge.  These are easy mailers, since they are barely layered and have no 3-D foam or sticky-uppy thingies.  :)



Does the watercolor background I made look familiar?  (Long story can be found here.)  I have a bunch of these and notecards were a perfect use for one sheet, at least.   I may have to make 20 additional sets!!!  Ha.

I used this lovely Technique Tuesday: Glee stamp set I won quite some months ago (THANKS, TT!!), but which they have since retired.  The music motifs are faves of mine since I play the piano and compose some......and now that I think about it, so does my little granddaughter, in her own way!  Ha.  (crash bang bang crash...)  At least when she is playing the piano, I know right where she is!!  :)

Hey, I have a new follower!!!  Or maybe two....I can't tell.  EEK!  I had 27 followers, but now it says 29......but I only see one new picture.  If you are my other new follower, please write me a note in the comments or use the email form in the sidebar and let me know!  Thanks!!  I don't want to miss anyone!!

My brand-new follower that I can see is:  Mary Steinemtz of Scraps with Mary.  She is on the DT for Feeling Sketchy and I think that is probably how she found my blog.  I had a lot of fun looking at Mary's blog and guess what.....she has a picture of two gorgeous cats, Ozzie and Milo, looking out the window together with their sweet tails hanging down.  Great photo!!!  You'll want to go see it and all her wonderful projects!!  Mary, thank you so much for becoming a follower of my blog.  This ginormous smile is for you!!!!

:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!!!

I think it is awesome how you are going to get so many fabulous cards out of that beautiful watercolor background, Janis! It's just perfect for your set of musical note cards! Ooops, you better go see what she's gotten into ... aren't they just the best?!! Hugs, Darnell

Yes, I think you are right, Janine! I need to use up all this paper sitting atop my craft drawers somehow. Gifts would be a great way.

Ha......go see what she's into, indeed!! I was getting dressed yesterday morning, and in the two minutes that took she grabbed a child-safe digital fever thermometer off the counter (where hubby had left it!) and got it stuck in the "keyhole" of the bedroom door! Three year olds! :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leave your sweet comment!
