And I think to myself.....

Good morning! So continuing on with the song bender I've been on for post titles :) For those of you who have had songs stuck in your head because of me...well, sorry about that, unless they been fun for you like they have been for me and then I say, yay us for singing a happy song! Today's song is one of my all-time favorites and I knew when I saw the words as part of Dawn Inskip's August grab bag digi kit, I had to not only have it but make something right away! This bag will be released at the Digichick Boutique Saturday as part of the August Grab Bag release!

The wonderful world paper and the ruler paper I used on the flower are from Dawn's kit and the rest are pieces of goodness from my stash. The paper strip flower was inspired by the sweet, talented and fabulous Kelley Eubanks from her post {here}. I ended up printing my digi elements on regular printer weight paper (read LIGHT weight) and it made folding up the flower a cinch!

And a parting shot at the cutest little ticket in the MM Love Notes line! I am a "hugger" (kind of like a "close talker" but hopefully less annoying! ha!) so, to me, hugs go hand in hand with a "wonderful world". So here's a cyber hug from me to you and a wish for a wonderful day. Take care and thanks for coming by!

Awww... you are sweet! :) Thanks for the wonderful compliments! You may not think the same things if you knew me in person! ha...

My jar o' button blog post title was inspired by you. I thought of you when I was typing it because it was song lyrics! :) I think those are fun. I do end up singing them sometimes but... singing is good for the soul... means we are happy, right?

I am a hugger too! I try not to hug people because some people just really don't like it but...I have a hard time with it. I just feel bad if I don't hug!! :)

Oh... and the card. ha... It is fabulous. I love all the different elements that you used. So shabby/vintage chic! Love it all!

Love these colors. They are so pretty! I also like how you mix digital and non-digital elements. And tickets...are always cute. I have a cubbie at home labeled tickets because they are another thing I collect :)

Karen said... do have me humming along, so I'll sing with ya, Dana! I saw that post by Kelley and it was just so happy. I also saw your comment that you wanted to try it....good for you! You've even got me eyeing that kit or grab bag or whatever its called! I like what you did That Much!! :>

Well, thank goodness you're not a close talker! :D Your card is super cute!!

Elise said...

....Red roses, too! I see them bloom for me and YOU and I think to my self...WHAT A WONDERFUL CARD! Ohhhh, Yeah! NOW there's a son that's impossible to be irritated by: I ADORE Louis Armstrong! But, I digress:

THAT IS SUCH A DARLING, DYNAMIC and FABULOUS card, SWD! WOW, girl! You ARE seriously cranking out the juice! I'm dizzy from this little card's delights! GREAT JOB, Sista!
