Groovin', on a Sunday afternoon...

Anybody remember that song? It's been stuck in my head since yesterday at Scrap and Stamp. We had Pandora Radio on, and it was set to my "5th Dimension" station with great Motown Sounds. That song played and brought back memories of warm, sunny, summer days as a young teenager. Carefree days of Dr. Scholl's sandles, halter tops, learning to golf, riding mini bikes, and hanging out with girlfriends. Nice memories.

My card today goes into Muse #39. As soon as I saw the Muse card by Marion Vagg, I knew I would play along. It's one of those cards you just love. And I do...take a look and see if you don't fall.


Uh-huh. How cool is this??!! I'm barely squeaking in for various reasons, but here is my take on this week's Muse:




Once again, the weather isn't cooperating with my photo shoot. It's pretty darn close to the same blues as in Marion's card, and the reds are beautifully rich. Die cuts again. Letters and number are from MB. The stamp and the tag dies are from LF. Versacolor red ink, and some ds sequins. Hope the rest of your Sunday is wonderful. Happy dances to everyone.

Oh, those stripes are so perfect on the tag, Bev ... 'specially with the pops of red and the sequins. Love the clever and terrific touch of the arrow pointing down to the final part of the sentiment ... makes the 'u' so special! Anita :)

This is so graphic and fun! I love how you've put the u on the tag and the little pops of red - an inspired take on this week's Muse, my friend! Thanks for joining us!

I love your version of the muse card Bev!
Red white and blue is always a classic winner!

Bev...fabulous card, amazing take on Marion's card, I just love it. Those sweet pops of red sequins are fabulous and love those letters, but that "u" is what sends your card over the edge fabulous.

What a cute striped tag on your card! Love how you used the trendy arrow, too. A great take on the inspiration!

I love how you create with such bold colours, Bev. The arrow pointing to the "U" is so great - really highlights it. I've been trying to avoid the sequins phase but your cards keep tempting me to give them a go. Hope you have a fantastic day!
