Words 2 Scrap By Challenge #1

Some blogger friends of mine Bobbi and Sybrina, have a new challenge blog called Words 2 Scrap By.  Their first challenge involves The Sound of Music "Favorite Things" song.

So, what's the inspiration for the first challenge? Our first month's inspiration comes in the form of the song "My Favorite Things" from Rodger and Hammerstein's  The Sound of Music. You know the song, "Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens..."

The challenge is to choose a lyric from the song and make a card based on your chosen lyric. Maybe your card will feature roses and raindrops... or kittens with whiskers... or another one of those favorite things mentioned in the song.

I was inspired by Carol L. who blogs at Our Little Inspiration.  She used the line "cream colored ponies" from the song.  Her card is gorgeous!  I remembered I had this great stamp from B&J's Art Stamps.

Cream Colored Ponies

Products Used:
Sizzix Labels 17
Tim Holtz Distressed inks in Antique Linen (to color horses) and Brushed Corduroy for edging.
Image stamped with Momento Rich Cocoa Ink
DP is Jillibean Soup Hearty Barley Mushroom
Sentiment is from Simple Sayings set Stamper's Anonymous (Tim Holtz)

On a different note, I gained 22 followers overnight!  Thank you all for joining my little blog.  I owe it all to Darnell at djkardkreations.  She gave me a shout out on her blog and wow!  Welcome everyone thanks for joining!

Happy Crafting!
