Inspiration For You!***






My Song: Waltz With The Angels (Rory Lee)
Played a party last night for some old folks
They were dancing and smiling at me
'Cept this old man, alone at a table
As if there's someplace that he'd rather be

So I said, "Sir, can I play something for you
Something special that you'd like to hear"
When he looked up at me, he was smiling
Oh, but his eyes couldn't hide the tears
He said, "Play me the Waltz of the Angels
And I'll close my eyes and pretend
Play me the Waltz of the Angels
So I can dance with my angel again"
He said, "Yes, that's the song I remember
That's the one that she loved the best
It was playing the night that I met her
And it was playing when we laid her to rest"
Play me the Waltz of the Angels
And I'll close my eyes and pretend
Play me the Waltz of the Angels
So I can dance with my angel again
Let me dance with my angel again

Animal Magic






I hope this card just 'quacks you up'! LOL! It is time for another fun challenge at The Paper Shelter and this week we want to see "Animal Magic". I chose "The Most Adorable Ducky" for my card.
He is such a fun little guy that you can't but help smile when you see him. I used a die cut for my lily pads and flowers. I added a shiny button for the center of the flower. The inside also  had a die cut that I cut in several layers and added some Copic coloring to. It fit perfect for this card.
So grab a stamp at The Paper Shelter and join in on the fun. 

I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: A Little White Duck (Burl Ives)
here's a little white duck, sitting in the water
A little white duck, doing what he oughter
He took a bite of a lily pad
Flapped his wings and he said, "I'm glad
I'm a little white duck sitting in the water
Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack"

Beautiful boy
Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way, it's getting better and better
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

All You Need Is Love***




This is a wedding card I made for my cousin's daughter. She is getting married next month and I wanted to send her a special card. I decided to make a white on white card with the roses being the only touch of color.  I included a card holder for the gift card on the left hand side.  I need to get the sentiment stamped and this off in the mail. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges! 

My Song: My Chapel (The Dixie Cups)
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Gee, I really love you
And we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel of love
Spring is here, th-e-e sky is blue, whoa-oh-oh
Birds all sing as if they knew
Today's the day we'll say "i do"
And we'll never be lonely anymore because we're
Because goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Gee, I really love you
And we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel of love

Brrrr....Baby It's Cold Outside



A closer look!
 My winter flower!
Brrrrr....is it cold at your house? We are experiencing some cold temps as winter works it way toward spring. I just could not commit to a totally cold card so I threw my  lavenders together to color this cute digi from Cute As A Button. You can practically feel the winter wind blowing. LOL....good days to sit in by the fire and keep warm and to craft.
I added some extra fine glitter to the 'fur' and the cute heart cut out on the snowman. 
I added some homemade foam flowers and added some sparkle.
I am entering this card at the following challenges

My Song: Hometown Girl (Josh Turner)
She grew up around here on that southwest side
Where the corn grows up to the road side
Went to high school here, got that Panther pride
She'll be cheering them on every Friday night
She couldn't hide her beauty with a baseball cap
Couldn't help but shine with a heart like that
New York called when she turned 21
But she never forgot where she came from
I need a pretty little homegrown hometown girl
With a ribbon tying back those waterfall curls
I've been looking all over, all over the world
For a pretty little homegrown hometown girl

Swag!




I had such fun coloring this fun stamp from The Paper Shelter. I thought this guy was cute and would be a fun guy card.  The stamp is called "Swag"! 
You can find it by clicking on the link! I colored it with Copics. I added a fun happy birthday tag and some cute brads. The inside sentiment was stamped on a spellbinder die cut. I thought it added a little more fun to this card. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Mohair Sam (Claude Rich)
Who is the hippie that's happenin' all over our town?
Tearin' up chicks with the message that he lays down
Who is the coolest guy, what is, what am?
Fast-talkin', slow walkin', good-lookin' Mohair Sam.

Snow Bird


I hope each of you are at least seeing a few signs of winter being over. This has been a long, cold, hard, winter. I think even our birds in Idaho would like to be dressed as this cute little bird from Whimsy is dressed. I am getting an early start on my Christmas cards for this year.  I hope you are getting yours done as well....I know we don't want to think about Christmas this soon, but hey look how prepared we will be!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Snow Bird (Anne Murray)
Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting
For its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings the song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers
That will bloom again in spring
When I was young my heart was young then too
Anything that it would tell me
That's the thing that I would do
But now I feel such emptiness within
For the thing that I want most in life's
The thing thing that I can't win
Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you
Where it came from on that day
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could you know that I would
Fly away with you

Girl's Just Want To Have Fun!





This is one of the newer stamps from The Paper Shelter! It is called The Glamorous Girls! Isn't fun? I also have been playing with foam to try and make some gorgeous flowers. I have seen these on various blogs and also watched You Tube videos. I still haven't got them perfected but I am having fun trying. If anyone has tips for me I would appreciate any and all! LOL! 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Girls Just Want To Have Fun (Cyndi Lauper)
I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we're not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun
The phone rings in the middle of the night
My father yells what you gonna do with your life
Oh daddy dear you know you're still number one
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

The "Hop"


This cute stamp from CAAB reminds me of the first dances I attended in Jr. High. I am sure I had that same look on my face. LOL! This card is also the first attempt I had made in making foam flowers. After I made this card I watched some videos on how to make them and surprise my next attempt turned out so much better. Too late for this card but hopefully it will serve as a reminder in the future. 
I am entering this card in the following challenges: 

My Song: At the Hop
Well there's a rock'n and a roll'n 
There's a sinking of my soul 
It's the hop! 
When the preacher started pray'n 
And the choir started sway'n
It's the hop!
Where my salvation 
Is a sweet celebration
It's the hop!

A Valentine/Birthday Wish




Today is my sweet husbands birthday! I wanted to find a special way to say Happy Birthday and this posting is it! So Happy Birthday Steve!
It is also time for another challenge at The Paper Shelter. 
Our challenge this week is "A Valentine Wish". So lets see your valentines. Remember if you use a stamp from The Paper Shelter  you can win a prize of $30 to spend at their store! 
I chose Tony and Cleo for my card. I think they are so cute and perfect for a valentine/birthday card. It has one of my favorite things....glitter!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Song: Can't Take My Eyes Off You (Frankie Valli)
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you
You'd be like heaven to touch
I want to hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you
Pardon the way that I stare
There's nothing else to compare
The sight of you leaves me weak
There are no words left to speak
But if you feel like I feel
Please let me know that it's real
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you
I love you baby and if it's quite all right
I need you baby to warm the lonely nights
I love you baby, trust in me when I say
Oh pretty baby, don't bring me down I pray
Oh pretty baby, now that I've found you stay
And let me love you baby, let me love you
