The Hills Are Alive.... {SSD #73}

So...have you ever looked at a sketch, sat down to make your card, looked back up at the sketch and realized you totally changed the orientation indicated in the sketch? Ooopsies!!!! However, if nothing else, it does prove that sketches are so amazingly versatile and we can totally make them our own! Right? Right. Thaaaaat's what I'm tell'n myself, anyway. Just Say'n. HA!!!


The Hills Are Alive!


Oh...and show tunes. How about them show tunes? Love 'em? Hate 'em? If you hate 'em you might not wanna hang out with me because I have been known to randomly burst into song. And I kinda can't really sing at all. But, REALLY, why can't my life just be a musical? I am pretty sure it CAN be, I just need to make it happen! That's all. Just say'n.


Hills Are Alive (Side Accent)


I pulled out two fabulous Skipping Stones Design sets for this card! Heartsong and Timeless Textures. The amazing sketch is by Laurie Schmidlin. It's a fun one!

  15. I LOVE this and I totally love show tunes!!! You know what might be cute too? You know the song from Chorus Line that says, "One singular sensation?" I think that line would be cute as a baby card to welcome a new baby if you ever need one.

    This card is perfection--I love it, Jingle!
