So beside my desk I have this picture. Are Craig Miner and Ryan Shupe not the cutest? I just pretend that I took the picture, we were out one day ya know shopping and I said "hey guys!" and they turned and looked back and SNAP!! I took the picture. (I actually got it off their website www.shupe.net)
Ok so I am maybe a little obsessed, but you really should listen to some music by Ryan Shupe and the RubberBand, they play so many different instruments it is amazing. Craig and his banjo, and Ryan and his fiddle, or mandolin, or, or, or…you name it! Roger Archibald, Ryan Tilby and Bart Olson round out the band!
When my Poppa passed away one of the things he left me was his violin/fiddle. I played in school for years, and I would love to take lessons now as an adult, but I am so not wanting to let Poppa's violin out of my sight, and I know it needs tuning and some strings replaced, and it probably just needs a good looking at, but would not want to leave it anywhere.
I remember coming home from school and practicing with my violin, and then Poppa would pick his up and play it. He played by ear, and it was fun to watch him figure the tune out on his own. I miss him.
So today, was the last of my 10/10/20 Birthday class. This time Nancy had it at her house, I have a group of ladies that like me to take the class to one of their houses, so it was nice hanging out with the ladies this morning.
I came home and still had a packet left so I thought I would whip up a card using the same paper and layout as before, but use a different stamp set.
I love the set "Pun Fun" so here is the card I did.
I will miss East Coast Prep background paper, as well as a lot of the others when they retire in July, but I am sure Stampin' Up! has more awesome paper to come!
Thanks for stopping in!

Oh My Land!!!! I learn something EVERY DAY when I visit your Blog!! Yesterday the Turtle Egg knowledge!! And today… Just when I thought I knew EVERYTHING about you, I learn you can play the fiddle! Well I could never be in your band I haven't an ounce of musical talent. BUT Steve could help ya out. He would love to learn how to play a harmonica. That would team well with a Fiddle.
