Let's Hear The Music

Good morning have you had a good week. Have you plans for the weekend or are you just playing in your Craft room/space. If it is the later how about joining us at CRAFTY CATZ for a challenge.
This week our theme has been picked by yours truely. 
now this isnt a song title challenge we just want to see either Instruments, singers, musicians or just musical notes. so not so complicated really.
We have a brilliant sponsor that allowed us to play with some of their images.
with a prize of 5 images

Now my card I made is a pop up card for my nephew who turned 13 last week. He loves his music and used to sing for his school but since going to high school hasnt ventured there but can be heard singing most of the time around the house.
So i have a few picture to share with you
This is the from. Computer generated sentiment with Die cut numbers.
DP is actually some wrapping paper that was in a book. Die is a Joanna sheen

Next is the inside showing the POPUP. images coloured with my promarkers and dies are joanna sheen and tonic Birthday sentiment

Time to Celebrate with a CRAFT BLOG HOP - BIRTHDAYS

Happy Birthday To Us
Happy Birthday To Us
Happy Birthday Dear CRAFT Challenge
Happy Birthday To Us!

Can you believe it? CRAFT Challenge is already 6 years old. Originally started by Tracy from Just Tracy Crafts and with a DT mostly recruited from Trimcraft forum members (Hence the term CRAFT Challenge, which stood for Crafters Residing Are Friendly Trimmies. Or if you wished alternative meaning of Can't Remember A Flipping Thing) on the 4th of May 2009.

We have now grown to be a large team of Design Team Members from all around the world, supplemented with lots of Guest Designers who join us for a month at a time.

We have always welcomed all kinds of craft, not just paper craft (unless specifically stated so in the challenge at the time) and are happy to have such a large group of faithful followers.

So, how are we going to celebrate this milestone?

Well, how else can we celebrate than to have our yearly Blogaversary Blog Hop?

We all feature one of our sponsors for this blog hop on our blogs and I have the honour of featuring and offering a prize from the following sponsor. You can win this prize by adding your name to Inlinkz at the end of this post. I would love to see your comments as well.

Farewell to Lisa

Good evening this week I had to make 2 Sympathy Cards for my neighbours. Sadly after hard battle with Cancer Lisa went to a better place. Her father and mother live across the road from me and they live round the corner. Her husband knows my son well. 
So I spent the morning of her funeral making the cards and thinking what ashame and how cruel life can be. She leaves 2 teenage children and thoughts of my own Mum and sister who bothe left teenagers and younger.
Well not to dwell and depress you all here is my cards. I kept both simple and in similar styles.
This was for her husband and children I think the sentiment says it all on the front
