Mini 2020 – Music From The Heart

Music From The Heart

The current Mini Stampin’ Up! catalogue has this Music From The Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set – I absolutely LOVE it!!

It reminds me of all the evenings I spent playing music with my Dad and my Brothers while growing up on the farm.  We lived in the country where television reception was almost non-existent so, instead of watching a very snowy TV screen, we would play our musical instruments – great times!!

Even though this cute stamp set has been retired, I just can’t let it go!!  Yes, these gift bags were made for Christmas (see the DSP) but I think “Elfie No Peeking” could be used all year round – he really is the cutest!!
