Challenge #221 - "Music Maestro Please"

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, tomorrow is the start of Winter for me as September comes to an end and no doubt some of you feel it to but before we start to feel that black mood descending I thought a bit of Music might just pick you up and so this weeks theme is all about something related to Music on your Cards please, this could be either a Singer, Dancing or a Instrument player or even just the instrument itself or maybe a Backing Paper, I leave the choice up to you and Im sure when you see what the Design Team have created it will start the thoughts and designs flowing. But as always Im getting ahead of myself and I know that you will want to know who won last weeks "Birthday Card with Sentiment" Challenge so without further ado here is the lucky winner chosen by Random Org:-

Now to bring some sunshine into your lives as the weather here in the UK has been very changeable at the moment, the nights are drawing in and its dark by 8pm and in 6 weeks time we shall have to put the clocks back to Winter Time, not my most favourite time of the year if Im absolutely honest, but the girls have certainly cheered me up and Im sure they will do the same for you.


Using Purity





It always thrills me when I find what the girls have created for the Challenge as they really are so inspirational and Im sure they will have also done the same for you so I look forward to seeing what you come up with this week in this "A Card with Many Folds" Challenge and this can be just two folds not as many as some of the girls have used, its entirely your decision as long as you use more than one. Also remember if there is a favourite image which you would like to buy from any of these cards all you need to do is click on the "Using links" above each of the cards and it will take you directly to the page where you can purchase it.
