Time for another challenge from Everybody Art Challenge this time to use some music and I used a Music stamp to make a background for my carol singer.
I coloured Charlie Carolling in traditional Christmas papers so it would work with the bits of Holly paper I had left.
My Scallop mat is from Avery Elle and everything was layered round it. Of course my Holly is Martha Stewart and the MFT Music Note die was also used to give it a reason for the music background.
Do pop over and check out the team and hope you can join us this week.
It looks like I have more or less enough Christmas cards just two very special ones to make and I then can just make them for fun now!

If you didn't know its the 1st of December and in previous years I have My Favourite Cards and My Favourite Christmas Cards posts and I plan to do the same this year. Eventually I will post the candy I have for each of them.

On Christmas Eve I will put up a post with My Favourite Five Christmas Cards 2015 with a Mr Linky to add your link to your post of your Favourite Christmas cards.

On the 30th December I will post My Five Favourite 2015 again with a Mr Linky to add your link to your post, now this time I'm quite happy for various crafts as long as they were made this year.

I'm also happy if you join a monthly favourite to add your link or even if you go over the five things.
