We are a group of very keen Demonstrators from around the world, that love what We Do and Love to Share.  We hope that we can inspire you.  This Blog's theme is Music.  I love these themes that leave things up to our interpretation.  I didn't know which direction to take.  A Christmas song?  Something that reminds me of a song.  So I just went through the catalogs and wow, I came up with alot of different things that I could do.  I love the Clever Cats and thought about the Musical and the song Cat in a Cradle, and then using the Biggest Wish Stamp set for Adele's song Hello.  Or what about You're A Peach and Justin Bieber's Song Peaches?   And what about using Right Behind You and A Bicycle  Built for Two? 

I decided to use Sweet Farewell Stamp Set because it reminded me of what I want to do most...TRAVEL  The song is I'm Leaving on A Jet Plane by Peter Paul and Mary.  I know this song dates me, but it also reminds me of a friend that we lost at such an early age this year.  It was with her that I first heard this song.  Here is my card.  I will include the supplies below.
