This card is one of a set of four. They will be a gift for a friend who is a retired music teacher.
I am so excited about some news I received today that I can't concentrate enough to come up with anything to say about this card.
Here's the big news - the Cat's Pajamas is having a new release next week. Now that in itself is enough to get me excited but even more exciting is that Top Kitty Kat Alma is inviting all the swanky stampers to participate in the release and sneaky peeks. And if you haven't guessed, yes I was a Swanky Stamper many moons ago. I can't wait to play along. So if you're a fan of the Cat's Pajamas, and seriously, who isn't, next week is going to be a lot of fun with peeks starting on Tuesday. I don't know who else is going to play, but the swanky Stampers include some very talented people, you're sure to love what they do. You can see it all, next week, on the Cat's Pajamas' forum on Splitcoast Stampers. We'll be looking out for you.
