Thanks and a music charm

I signed me and the kids up for a music class this week. We've never done anything organized before with a specific time, so this was all new to us. I had to wake Neve up a few times from her nap, but we all survived. Luckily she LOVES music.
This is the thank you card for the teacher. i also made a bookmark I'll show you tomorrow. Can't give away all my goodies at

Paper is by SU, Thanks-Quickutz, the charm took a little playing around. More on that later.

I also played around with how to attach it to the card. Finally decided to colour a paper flower. Only had my ink pad as I lent my markers out. Didn't like the effect, so I put the flower on a piece of paper and washed it with a paintbrush. Still wasn't too excited about it, even though there were hints of brown in the ink. But when I took the flower off the paper, I got this lovely washed out flower imprint. I punched it with the SU scallop circle and cut between the scallops to make a flower. Added a bit o bling in the middle for when the charm is gone.

The charm was a fun process. I wanted to see if the eighth notes from Cuttlebug would shrink well. Then I decided to try the reverse image. I used the Quickutz scallop circle die around the notes and outlined it. Shrunk it down, there ya go. THe notes did ok. They are tiny, one of them came out with it's legs crossed so when I tried to open them, they cracked. now I have a couple of quarter notes. :} (music humour). Oh yes, that splotch you see behind it is a removable glue dot. I forgot to take it off before I took the picture. These dots are great for this kind of stuff. I made another charm for the bookmark with the Quickutz die. Show you that later.

Thanks for looking,
