City Crafter 9

♪ ♪ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫♫

Thank you thank you City Crafter - they gave me another Spotlight Artist last week, I love it !!!

This week they have a very cool challenge, which is "Venice". No gondolas !

Now, I have never been there, but the pictures of this incredible Italian city are so colorful. The homes on the waterfront painted so brightly, the blue of the Adriatic Sea, the golden sunsets - but my personal favorites, the masks !

Now we had some choices about our theme once we got to Venice, and the one I chose was music. The Venetian School was a group of composers during the late 16th century who ushered in the Baroque era of music. They were innovative and brought about dramatic change in music.
So, I have combined color, and music in this card...

I told Tracy I would give her complete credit for the darling treble clef paper clip, which I purchased at Staples.

***Reminder to check out Papercraft Star - the first challenge opens next Wednesday. Also, the message board is up and running, with lots of interesting information and tips, plus some fun !***

My "for fun" for today - Dom had a coupon for a hamburger at a fast food restaurant here in town. The coupon was pretty cute, it was a hamburger on paper, cut out just right. Now being a hater of all things mayo, he asked the girl if the burger came with mayo on it. After looking over the picture on the coupon she said "you know, I can't tell ..."

Ta Da !!
