Ha! Have you heard me sing? Well its a good job I don't have a mic for the sake of your eardrums. Im an enthusiastic singer but thas about it! Kel set this fab new Dare, which was to make a card incorporating song lyrics.
Now I don't know if I should be worried but all my favourite songs are either protest songs (a la Joni Mitchell, Marvin Gaye,) Have really depressing lyrics (Prince, Nina Simone, Dido) or don't have many words at all. My boyfriend has loads and loads of house records from the late 90's early 00's and it was great fun giving them an airing, including the fabby Fix my Sink, great to have a boogie to but try getting that on a card!
I really really wanted to do a card with Everybody Loves the Sunshine. There have been so many great remixes using this vocal and its a proper smiley song, but inspiration wasn't on my side with that one even though I listened to several versions over and over. It did make me grin though!
So, well you can't go wrong with the wise words of John Lennon can you,
Paper is from Basic Grey, the background is an Urban Couture and letters and alpha stickers are from the Lilykate Collection Pack. I handcut the big love, several times to get it right! I was green with envy at those lucky people who have craft robo's to do this for them.
This second one was more challenging from me. Its a song from back in the day when we (me and my boyfriend) used to go out every weekend dancing. I never know how to describe music but its here if you fancy a 20 second snippet. The tune is called Transition by Underground Resistance. Its great to remember those city years but it just makes me realise even more how much I like being out here in the sticks.
DCWV cardstock, Sassafrass Lass paper which Ive had for ages and only just now used, ribbon printed on the pc, gorgeous Angel Kisses from LCC. I would never have normally put this sunny yellow with the pale pink flowers and brads but the paper just got it perfect and looked like it was meant to be!
Im just in the door from teaching the teachers, will write about that later though as I need this cuppa sitting in front of me!
