Blow your own trumpet!


Have a friend coming for lunch to collect this card for her nephew, he's a trumpet player and is turning 12 tomorrow. I used papers from Kanban and some digi spotty paper. I used my SeeD music stamps for the music notes. The image is from Little Musings, coloured with copics. I added a trumpet stamped on mirri board and cut and slipped under his fingers.
Was at doctors this morning following my long lasting bug last week. He thinks I have IBS so on anti spasm tablets (which I am so glad to have). So fingers crossed it will help till I find the things that are causing it in the first place.
I am entering this into the following challenges.
1. Midnight Madness - followed their sketch (its party time over there so get your disco gear on)
2. CRAFT challenge - birthdays, anniversaries
3. Paperplay - use a digi and bling

A fabulous Musical card Pinky...I am sure your friends Nephew will love it!
I hope the anti spasm tablets give you some relief from your IBS...I am a sufferer too...Mine was much worse when I was younger...perhaps stress related...I always found fybogel and peppermint tea helped :)

Hi Pinky

I am clearly going wrong somewhere - you make all of these cards and have people over for lunch!!!

Any tips?

A great card and a great way to bring the trumpet into things.

Hope the tablets work Pinky!

Love Jules xx
