Snowflakes and Music

Now I don't really "do" Christmas Cards but as my sister had asked me to make a couple of snowflake cards for her I decided that I needed a new die - any excuse for a bit of shopping!

Having seen some lovely ideas on Pinterest, I ordered the Dazzling Snowflake Memory Box die
to create quite a classy card don't you think?

The child is getting quite exceed already about Christmas and has already 
started singing Christmas songs (argh!) which brings me quite nicely to the prompt over at


This year she took her Grade 5 violin exam. 
She was devastated when she came out, thinking she had done really badly with the pieces AND the scales and apologised for failing!

Well! She didn't fail at all...

...she passed with distinction!!!
She still thinks the examiner got her mixed up with somebody else!


  1. Stunning card and well done to your daughter!! What an achievement! Thanks so much for sharing with us at OBW!!
