Music Card Using CTMH Sweet Music and Cricut Artbooking

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #74 - Theme - Music

Hello all you wonderful crafters. I hope everyone is doing well.  I have been having migraines and was feeling bad again.  I think the harder I try to get healthier; the worse I feel.  I was encouraged to drink the 9.5 PH (Alkaline water) water and realized Friday night that it was causing me to have flu like symptoms, migraines, dizziness, etc.  It took me two weeks to figure it out.  It is good for most people; but I am going to have to use part filtered water and part of this water because it is detoxing me and I wasn't expecting that to happen.  I thought it was the food I was eating.  I cut back on how much I was drinking and my symptoms improved.

Please take time to enter for a chance to win FREE Candy at the top of my blog.  I would love to have more followers to celebrate with me.  Thanks to everyone who is already a follower.  I appreciate your wonderful comments and love hearing from you.
It is time for another fabulous week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge 74 - Music.  Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede.  Be sure to check out their website for their terrific digi stamps.  I think I own most of them.  LOL!  Don't forget to see what the DT has created for you.  We would love to see what you create for this wonderful theme of Music.

Our Guest Designer this week is Mian Hahne.  Click her name to see her blog and more awesome creations.  We would love to have you as a Guest Designer.  Add GDT behind your name when you enter your creation this week.  Good luck to all of you.  Thanks so much for joining us this week for "Music".  I can't wait to see what everyone creates.
I didn't use the sponsor's Digi stamps this week; because I had a CTMH stamp set called "Sweet Music" that I really wanted to use.  I also wanted to try using a background stamp for the very first time as well.  The music notes are the background stamp used on CTMH White Daisy Cardstock; and I love how it turned out.  All of the die cuts are from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.  I love making cards with this cartridge as it has a lot of coordinating pieces like the ones I used on this card hope you enjoy it as well.
