Monday Mania!

Hello, hello!

I hope all my friends in the States are enjoying this fine Memorial day weekend. I've had a couple of days off which is great because town gets positively crazy this time of year so I like to hole up here at home and avoid the wild, drunken crowds. What can I say... I'm getting old I guess, LOL! ;)

Ok, getting down to business... I've got a card for the wonderful new Monday Mania challenge over at CA&Friends. Amy (crafty amy) is this week's hostess and her challenge is all about creating a card that is inspired by a song. How fun is that?!

Now I've been listening to my Glee soundtracks pretty much non-stop lately so is it any surprise that my card is inspired by one of them? I couldn't have told you who the original artist was until I googled it (Jennifer Paige) because in my mind it will always be tied to my number one show. :)
And as soon as I came across Flirty Edward, from the Roll Call set, in my stamps the whole card just kind of tumbled together and I think it turned out really sweet. Doesn't little Annika just look like she is crushing on that hottie? LOL

I really hope to see a lot of my fellow music lovers play along this week. Remember that the prize is a single TGF rubber stamp of your choice (and the new release will be out by then even)! ;)

See ya in just a bit with my second Simply Betty preview!

Hi Amy, you guys sound like us during the holiday. Our somewhat quiet town becomes overflowing with people drinking and trying to kill themselves out at our sand dunes..Yuck! Thank goodness we are not a party animal group like that it is get together at one of our houses and enjoy each other and laugh.(VERY NOISEY!) but fun. Anyway this is one of mine and Mads favorite songs off of Glee! I love the card and how you put them together. Glad you are getting a couple days off. You really work too hard. lol..Have a great Monday off. Hugs, Lisa
