Here comes Suzy Snowflake...

dressed in a snow white gown
tap, tap, tappin' at your windowpane
to tell you she's in town...

Hey there my stamping peeps!

It's Wednesday and time for a brand new challenge over at ATS! This week is all about finding inspiration from a song when making your card or project. I knew immediately which song and which stamp I wanted to use for this one because not only is the song inspiring the card but it was also my main inspiration for creating the SN Snowflake Fairy stamps in the first place! The song is an oldie sung by Rosemary Clooney called, "Suzy Snowflake", here let me share the lyrics with ya...

Here comes Suzy Snowflake
Dressed in a snow-white gown
Tap, tap, tappin' at your windowpane
To tell you she's in town.

Here comes Suzy Snowflake
Soon you will hear her say
Come out ev'ryone and play with me
I haven't long to stay.

If you want to make a snowman
I'll help you make it, one, two, three.
If you want to take a sleigh ride
Whee! The ride's on me.

Here comes Suzy Snowflake
Look at her tumblin' down
Bringing joy to ev'ry girl and boy
Suzy's come to town.

If you want to make a snowman
I'll help you make it, one, two, three
If you want to take a sleigh ride
Whee! The ride's on me.

Here comes Suzy Snowflake
Look at her tumblin' down
Bringing joy to ev'ry girl and boy
Suzy's come to town.

Bet you aren't surprised that I would find those lyrics appealing and that they would get my imagination going. If you get the chance to actually listen to the song I highly recommend it as it is utterly charming. :)

Ok, so now it is your turn and remember, every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your card

Hi Amy, This is just perfect. It's almost like the song was made just for your wonderful Snowflake fairies. Love the colors too. How's your snow level? We got snow all day long. It was so pretty, but I was at work so I only got to see it through the windows. Hugs, Lisa
