That night, I was TV surfing and I came across the Sound of Music. As much as I hate to admit…I absolutely love that movie. It was on the part where they were singing My Favorite Things. Then it dawned on me how fitting the lyrics were…”When the dog bites, when the bee sting, when I’m feeling bad, I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel so bad.” Well…another long story short…I started crafting that night and I started feeling much better. Proof positive that paper crafting is one of my favorite things. Totally corny (I know), but so true. LOL!
This is the card that lifted my spirits and that I now share for your viewing pleasure.
My inspiration for this card, other than the Sound of Music, includes the following:
Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #31 (use sketch)
Meet the VERVE Diva Challenge (use a new stamp)
SCS Ways To Use It Challenge (use color pencils)
Our Creative Corner Challenge (make birthday card)
