ShowCASE Sunday: Musical Season Little Drummer Boy

It's ShowCASE Sunday!  For this week's CASE (copy and share everything), we selected a sample from the Holiday Catalog on pg 51.

This beautiful sample feature the Count My Blessings stamp set (144787w or 144790c]).  If you look real close - you'll notice a small layer of vellum. That little touch tones down the background piece.  What a clever little trick!

I selected the Musical Season Bundle from the Holiday Catalog.  Let a burst of music descend upon your loved ones with this stamp set and coordinating Musical Instruments Framelit Dies.

Our grandson, Max is in 5th grade this year.  For their school district, that is when band starts.  He really wanted to play the drums, and he was selected for that.  Probably because he's been taking piano lessons, which he enjoys too.  So when I saw this set, I knew I had to have it.

I'm just thrilled with the way this turned out.  I would have never made a card like this without the inspiration of the catalog sample.  Give it a try!

I'm doing ShowCASE Sunday with my friend, Dawn Thomas.  Be sure to check her CASE out too! 

If you have a little drummer boy or girl in your family, this bundle would be perfect for you!    You might even find yourself reaching for the Musical Season Bundle with coordinating Musical Instruments Framelit Dies after the holiday season.  If that's the case, then be sure to add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O
