Here are my projects for you.

I chose to do cards that had to do with the Music. Saxophones is New Orleans to me. It says a good time. I love the sound of a saxophone. So I found 2 images and paper.

The music note paper is by Free Vintage digis. You can find it here http://freevintagedigistamps.blogspot.com/

The man with the sax is by Two For Tuesday. You can find it here http://digitaltuesday.blogspot.com/

The sax with hearts is by Create With TLC. You can find it here http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/tlc4lo - TLC store Tlc blog- http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.com/

I colored both images with Copics.
