MariLynn    THIS IS ME
Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co 

The background for my stamp is the Mark's Finest Papers set called JUST A NOTE.
I used this week's MOJO281 sketch.
This card is also what I made for this week's Splitcoast Stampers - CAS challenge CAS208 to be inspired by this quote:
"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything." 
My hummingbird sure is humming along with the music background. 
The TLC Challenge - TLC417  was to use Washi Tape. I used faux washi tape at the bottom of my card with the little roses.  
And lastly this card is for the lovefest2013e challenge to use die cuts.

This set is one of my favorites. These are cards I made last week using this set.

My daughter got to go to a JJ Heller concert last night. I was blessed to hear her in concert last year. 
This song is a beautiful song about love and the reason that I'm sharing it is because parts of the song are just hummed. It is what I thought about when I saw the name of this set Hum Along.
