A Kiss to build a Dream on

Happy Monday Everyone!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I had a fab time on Saturday demoing at a workshop with the best bunch of ladies.  I'll show you the card we made tomorrow.  For today I'm catching up with a couple of challenges.

Less is More - One layer week with a theme of music
CAS-ual Fridays - Love song.  Choose a song you love to inspire your CAS creation

I've gone for "A kiss to build a dream on" by Jimmy Durante.  My husband and I love the sound track to Sleepless in Seattle.  Not so much the film.  However this song became ours.  We would pretend we could dance when playing it at home and once in a silly mood we danced in a layby as the music played from the car.  What the other drivers thought I don't know!!   When we asked our wedding band if they could play it as our first dance they looked at us strange. We got "Love is all Around" by Wet Wet Wet.  At least our guests weren't exposed to some very silly dancing and instead we did a sedate shuffle!!  Nowadays we are very tame and all fuddy duddy.  No more dancing at home never mind laybys! 

So onto the card.  First off I printed my computer generated sentiment onto Whisper White (Font - Fabulous 50).  I then used my Music Note Wheel in Baja Breeze being quite random and allowing it to fade out.  I stamped the flourish from Everything Eleanor in Basic Black and added the splodges from French Foliage in Pink Pirouette.   I then punched out a few Cherry Cobbler Glimmery Glitter hearts using the Owl Punch and added them to the flourish.

A lovely welcome to Kristie, thanks so much for joining me here.  

Remember to let me know if you are interested in my Stampers 6 (Virtual Hostess) club starting in April.  It's so exciting to receive a lovely parcel of goodies each month.  

Thanks go out to the lovely ladies at Addicted to Stamps and More for choosing my card last week as a winner.  Also thank you to Merry Monday for my honourable mention for this card.

See you all tomorrow. x
