Vintage Vogue Birthday Card

I am shocked at how many birthday cards I need this month! And I am also shocked at how far behind I am at making them!!! LOL

I LOVE this "Vintage Vogue" set. And I just found out last week that it is still available and it will be in the new catalog!! So if you didn't get yours in the last mini catalog it is still available!

I also used the "Thoughts & Prayers" set on this card too. Just to show you that it is not just a sympathy set. The "Vintage Vogue" is in the background. I did the "One Sheet Wonder" technique, which I will explain tomorrow. I wanted to post this card for a friend who is celebrating her birthday this month and I also want to post the "Vintage Vogue" clear mount set in celebration of my blog reaching One MILLION Hits! Can you believe it? It would have been cool to have logged on and see it at 1,000,000 but seeing over that mark is great too.

I'm SO frustrated here trying to type up this post. My computer (which is not very old but it's got VISTA on it) is acting up again. It acts like something is running in the background and it won't let me type more than a couple letters at a time before it waits for something. The hard drive is working away on something and that is what is slowing it all down. It's very aggravating. Anyway, enough about my ranting.

Let's get on with the celebrating. I am not posting the blog candy in a separate post like I did in the past. I am blending it in with a "normal" post. It's a test to see if the post actually is read to the end or if you just look at the pictures! LOL

Now when I post blog candy I usually ask you to answer a question. And of course this one will not be any different! I'll keep it simple this time!! What's your favorite song? I will do a random drawing using the Random Number Generator to pick the winner so when you leave your comment on this post only please put the next consecutive number in front of it to make counting for me much easier. I will draw a name on Friday May 15th.
5-11-10 Well, the number thing isn't working out because of the moderation of the comments. I can't turn that off so I'll just count as I have done in the past. SO just leave your comment and I will count the entries by hand. Thanks SO much for trying! The drawing will be held at noon on the 15th. I always forget some details!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

3 - I think! Love your birthday card - so soft and gorgeous. My fave song (of the moment) is Hold to a Dream by the New Grass Revival. I'm in a bluegrass frame of mind with festival season approaching. ~chris

I really like how you combined the two stamp sets - it makes a beautiful card. Just wonderful.
As far as a favorite song - I guess I'd have to say Amazing Grace. You just can't hardly find a prettier song as far as I'm concerned.

Sheila said...

Hands down Amazing Grace! Absolutely LOVE your creative corner. Not sure why you call it a corner when I've seen your workroom!! Not even close to being a "corner"! *smile*

It's really hard to pick a favorite, because there are so many wonderful songs. So I'll go with our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner. I just love watching the Olympics and hearing the national anthems of the different countries played--but, of course, especially ours.

Your work is always so amazing! I try to look in on your blog a few times a week, my goal is to be more of a commentator and less of a lurker.

Hard to choose one favorite song, but anything by Carol King, especially her song, Tapestry makes me swoon.

13. My favorite song right now is "Hey Soul Sister" by Train. It just keeps going around and around in my head. Like the card, too, might have to make a couple when I stamp this month. Thanks for the chance at blog candy.
