Are you a music lover? Do you like Blues or Jazz?? Well, I do! And I LOVE that my son decided to take saxophone lessons!!! He's been a piano player for ten years and has played the clarinet for seven years so when he told me he wanted to be in Jazz Band at his high school last year, my husband and I were thrilled to go saxophone shopping! LOL But I admit, this year he's decided to play piano for Jazz Band and that's fine as well. But I'm just happy he's continuing his sax lessons. :-)
La La Land Crafts are some of my favorite images to color. Not ONLY can you get adorable Saxophone Luka as a digi stamp, you can hop over to MarkerPOP! and get him in rubber as well!
I colored my Luka with Copic Sketch markers and mounted him to my card base using Pop Dots after cutting around him. My musical paper is from the Carta Bella, "So Noted" paper pack. I never miss an opportunity to buy a paper pack that has anything to do with music in it!! My "vintaged" paper is from my older paper stash, sorry I can't remember the name.
I added some paper roses which I colored using some Heidi Swapp Color Shine "Mustard" and Mr. Huey's "Overdue Real Red". These are some of my favorite mists for coloring flowers!! They dry nicely and are the perfect saturation every time! A few rhinestones for "sax air" (ha!) was added behind my image as well as an SRM Sticker for the sentiment.
I created this card for one of my son's band directors, Mr. Stegemann, who, I admit, I give more than enough razzing to all school year long. (I know, I know, those of you who know me can HARDLY believe I'd do such a thing, right? Bwahahaha! *wink*) Last week was "Teacher Appreciation Week" so I decided maybe... just maybe... poor ol' Stegemann deserved a bit of a thanks. Last year I was part of the Band Boosters and this year my schedule just didn't allow for it. I KNOW it takes a LOT of work, coordinating, and hours to get a marching band like ours to all the competitions, rehearsals and concerts all year long and I think Mr. Stegemann probably doesn't get near enough thanks for all he does. Their other band director is Mr. Bartacheck and yes, I made him a little thank you as well. I'll share that with you another day. Together they are quite a team and through all the grumbling and whining and headaches, they make one hell of a band that our high school is VERY proud of!! And yes, I'm biased! It IS my alma mater as well. Hee
I hope you find a little music in your heart that keeps you smiling and I hope that when you hear it you think of all the work and dedication the performer puts into it to get it just right for all to enjoy!
As always.. I thank you for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous Tuesday!!! *HUGS*
