It's In the Notes...!!

That is what today's Ways to use it Challenge is on SCS! Think up a song for inspiration and make a card from it! Cool, eh? You can use music-type stamps, be inspired by a song, a title, a phrase in a song...just see how music inspires you!

Well, I come up with the MOTHER song!! Not the mother of all songs......just the mother song!

You know the one - The Mother's Day song

M -is for the million things she gives me
O -means only that she's soft to hold
T -for the things she tries to teach me
H -is for her heart of purest gold
E -for her eyes with love light shining
R -means right and right she'll always be

Put them all together they spell Mottttthhhher, (I'm singing here)
A word that means the world to me.

I wanted to use the new Women of Life stamp set from Papertrey Ink so that is why I used THAT song!!

I stamped the stems from the stamp set first, in Spring Moss Palette Ink on Spring Moss cardstock, then the centers of the flowers in Aqua Mist.

I used my glue pen to colour over the Aqua Mist and then sprinkled green and blue glitter on top to make the centers so sweet and shhhparkly!!

I see a little bit o' glitter hanging on there......I just use a little paint brush to wipe it away after I am done......well after I am done posting.....

I tied the spring moss polka dot ribbon around and stamped Happy Birthday on the bottom and then took the MOM stamp and stamped that on top.

The set comes with all sorts of ladies "names" Aunt, Grandmother, Sister, Mom, Mother, in-law, Daughter. And then also Thank you, Happy Birthday and so much more!! Well you can see it for yourself here.

I like it and I love this stamp set and the Perfect Match line that they have going on!!
