Thank You For The Music

Morning everyone, hope you are all well and ready for a new challenge over at an Oldie But A Goodie.  This time it's Laurie who is in the driving seat & I think she's gone with her favourite theme, which is...

Inspired By A Song
Remember also to use something older than 6 months on your card and tell us what it is.

A lovely challenge don't you think, but you wouldn't believe the number of problems this challenge has caused! More of that later but first, the prize...

Paper Nest is a new stamp company to me, (you've maybe heard of them), and they are giving our lucky winner  a $25 spend in their on line shop - What a fantastic prize!!!  Us DT girls were also  lucky enough to get out grubby mitts on these super stamps and so I chose the current freebie - Playing Dress Up available here for my card.  I thought she was lovely!

So for my card I used MME paper, Be Amazed, Kraft, my MS doily punch, and a lovely Die Cut again from Dies To Die for (CC Cutters - Flower Border).  I so wish Tracey wouldn't bung these samples in with orders - cause that now means I want another die!!! (Thanks Tracey, I love it really!) My oldies this time are the buttons - bought from Elzybells, so they must be old as that shop closed ages ago!

As for my song, well it's Abba and Thank You For the Music - yup, it's the girl with golden hair.  Click on the link for a listen - and to see those great costumes those girls used to wear!

So that's my take on the challenge, now see what the rest of the team did here before joining in on the fun.

Stampin For The Weekend - Button it up
Sweet Sketch Wed - Sketch 205 rotated - it is ok to rotate???
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Jelly Park - Girly Girl
Divas By Design - Anything Goes
Passion For Promarkers - Birthdays

Finally, the problems this time around.  Well this is one of 3 cards I made for this challenge as there was a bit of a mix up with sponsors and dates!
My initial card used another sponsors image,(I posted it last week), then shock horror I twigged the date and thought best make an anniversary card. (It's my Silver Wedding Anniversary today!)
Then I realised it was the Paper Nest who were our sponsor this time, so obviously I wanted to use one of their images.  Again, a bit of a hic-cup and a delay, so I thought, instead of using my selected wedding image I'd use the current freebie instead!  This I did & I'm glad cause she's lovely but that then leaves the small problem of an anniversary card for today too!  As I write this post I have two options - post the card I originally made or make the Paper Nest one I planned - depending on the time I have over the weekend will determine whether it's a double card post!
