Hello World Here's A Song That We're Singing....

Come On Get Happy....

This week our theme for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is "Inspired by Song". I am almost ashamed to admit this song has been stuck in my head. (Some one please help me get it out!) For those of us mature enough to remember, this was the theme song of the Partridge Family. Boy, wasn't David Cassidy dreamy??? Okay, enough of this dating myself and on to my project. (Update: I just got an email that this card will be featured on SNR Card Universe. Woohoo!)

I made this card both inspired by the song and a bit by the old TV show. These cute little birds are from the Love Grows Here digital stamp set. I printed the bird in 2 sizes, colored, and cut them out. I clipped the valentine from its beak since I didn't need it for this card. I love this set! Although you probably think of it as a "Valentine's Day" set, I will use it all year. (See my post from last week here for another project using it.) The cupcake can be used for birthdays, the cherries for summer, the love birds for weddings or anniversaries just to name a few. Here is a close up of the set.

When I was at my Jazzercise class on Wednesday, sweating through an abdominal (not abominable, though it seemed that way at the time) routine set to Rihanna's "Umbrella", I thought I could do a card with one of the new sets for this song! It also works for for Faith Hills' "Red Umbrella". Either way, here is my umbrella card using the new Puddle Fun digital stamp set.

And here is a look at the complete set.

I have to admit I am disappointed I ran out of time this week to make some of the other projects floating around in my head for this theme. How about "Black Coffee" (Billie Holiday) or "Coffee Girl" (Tragically Hip) using Coffee Talk, "Born in the USA" (Bruce Springsteen) using the Patriotic collection, anything by the Scissor Sisters using the scissors from Sew Pretty, "Birdhouse in your Soul" (They Might Be Giants) using Birds & Branches... The possibilities are endless... As a music junkie,I could go on and on. But, just for you, I won't.

I hope this inspires you to create a project using that song you have in your head. Check out what the rest of the DT created when they were inspired by song.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.
