 My Mother and Step-Dad stopped by I mentioned about the challenge to my Step-Dad. He gave me a look and said he'd think about it. I was so appreciative of this. I called my Mother a few days later to remind her of something; my Step-Dad asked to talk with me. When he came to the phone he said how about a saxophone with notes; playing "The Tax Day Blues". I immediately went to my cartridge library to only find that I didn't have a sax..hmmm. I got into my Cricut Design Studio and got to work. This is the result of the work.  I hope you like it.  I used an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of cardstock I had on hand then I found this awesome music paper in my stash and thought oh yea!!!! This is perfect!!!!! I thought this will fit perfect with the theme.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I had fun in making it.  I can tell you the size of the saxophone is about 4".  I love a challenge!!! I thanked him again and again for the inspiration behind this card.  I can tell you he just might find this card in his possession soon.  Now for you to enjoy the card as well, then I will give you your next stop.

Now you're next stop in the hop is to Mary at Just Cut The Paper.  Have fun on the hop and thank you so much for stopping by.... 
Have a Happy Cricut Day,
