Life is A Song! by JUdy Jackson

One thing I have learned -- is that life is full of changes. Some changes are good, and some are not so good.  My husband passing away was not a good change. My daughter and  family moving in with me is basically a good change.  Moving from a larger stamp room to a smaller is both good and not so good. The not so good  aspect of that was having to sort through and and get rid of stuff.  The "good" aspect of all this is sorting through all of this stuff and deciding what will I really keep and really use.  So really getting rid of some stuff is also a "good" thing.

One thing I knew I would keep is all of my "card starts."  Although now it is in a basket and not a plastic drawer.   The parts of the background on this card were from this basket. Then I added the focal images. 


The Technique Junkie stamps I used are Life is a Song http://techniquejunkies.com/life-is-a-song/ and Treble Clef http://techniquejunkies.com/treble-clef-small/.  I stamped both of these on card stock vellum, used my Xyron machine to adhere it to a pale yellow card stock.  I then mounted that panel onto black card stock and trimmed off the excess.  I added part of a black pearl and rhinestone embellishment. It is just lovely.


The saying is so true. Sing your life song - and make a cheery tune! 

Have an inky day!

Judy, this is gorgeous. I just broke down and bought a Xyron with my birthday gift card to Michael's. I really like your background; it show cases you images so well.
