Night at the Opera



Good morning everyone!!! This is going to be short and sweet because I have to get ready for work...we will have two more Grands staying with us for a couple of weeks so Gramps will be in charge today. If he's smart, he will let them sleep all morning but I'm afraid the military man comes out and he feels compelled to get everyone up at the crack of dawn....my poor babies...LOL!!! Anyway....

I made this yesterday before the kids came...the background is a new stamp from Rubbernecker called Toile Panel #572 and the chandelier came from RN's Opera Set #575. They were both stamped with Night of Navy and Stickles was added to the chandelier...It looks really sparkly in real life!! The background dies are two Fancy tags taped together and the pearls and navy ribbon finish it off.


Thanks for stopping by....have a fabulous Monday!!!!

Beautiful! Love your title, too. I don't know if I would say 'poor babies or poor husband', heehee. It must be very lively at your home this summer!!!! Lots of grands.

Oh, so striking, Joan! It looks quite dramatic in monochrome too, which suits the opera theme. What a great background stamp, I can see you using that a lot.

Enjoy having the Grands to stay! CoB
