I had a “senior moment” yesterday and posted a blog hop a week early!  I apologize to those of you who were looking for my post yesterday that it disappeared.  I had to take it down or spoil all the fun of the hop for next week.  I will try not to ever do that again!!!  Yikes!!!

So today I have a really cute card that I hope will make up for my absence yesterday.  It is stamping directly on the Designer Series Paper.  I remember doing this at my club one day and a couple of the ladies had never considered stamping on DSP.  Here is today’s card.

Carols of Christmas, 144804

I love that you can see the music through the stamping.  I am not a musical person at all, but I love sheet music and I believe this paper is just gorgeous.  The name is Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper.  A mouthful but well worth it.

The colors I chose are Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.  I have to confess that I have never really used Garden Green until this year.  When the Be Merry Designer Series Paper came out in the current annual catalog I was surprised to see Garden Green in the packet.  Now I feel that I have been very wrong in ignoring this beautiful color.

There is not very much I can say extra about this card other than I used the ink pads and stamps to stamp on the DSP. I felt it needed just a touch extra when I was finished.  So I added the cute little corner touches.

Thank you for visiting today.  Again I apologize for yesterday’s No Post!  I may miss a post in the future, but I hope I never have to remove one again.  LOL!!!   The supplies I used are listed below.  You can click on any item and be taken directly to my online store.
