I found a quote in a book the other day by a chap named Douglas Adams.

I love Deadlines,
I like the Whooshing  Sound they make
As they rush by.
Yep! that fits me to a T. 
So without any more delay here is my latest late deadline but in my defense I was having a coffee with Barbara Gray!  We the  girls in the Christmas Card Club are showing our latest makes. The theme was set my Elizabeth  of 'Music'.  I had this lovely used card front in my christmas card stash which I have been keeping just for  Elizabeth's challenge.  I didn't want to spoil it by having a fancy background or adding any embellishments so I just went, after slightly triming the edges down for lots of layering. I did just add a triangle over each corner to look like  I had stuck the print into an album. A silver sticker used for the sentiment and card finished even though it did take ages doing all the matting and layering. Excuse number two. 

Stay Safe.

I can see why you were saving this image, it's a lovely Christmas scene and it reminds me of the Salvation Army band that used to play as they marched through the city when I was a child - now I feel old :/
