Music Cards for the Hatter's Challenge and blue skies


Hi you all! Hope you are all well, and that those in the USA did not eat too much turkey, or spend all their money buying bargains on Black Friday!

I made some card with a musical theme, using papers from DCWV and Graphics 45, so I am linking to the Out of a Hat Challenge, where the ladies want to see something to do with music this week.






Today it was cold, windy, grey and wet, but yesterday was pleasant and sunny, and I managed to go for a walk through our little town and down to the Rhine. I felt like I'd run  a marathon by the time I got back, but it was good to get out again. I am beginning to feel a bit stronger and that is a good feeling!



And this is the little stream next to where I live. You can see that some trees still have leaves!


Here's wishing you all a good weekend. Take care, have fun, and thanks for coming by.
