"Song Bird" I just called to say I love you - Stevie Wonder ( The Woman in Red Album 1984)

Hi everyone,

I am so sorry to have been away from my blog for a while, but I've had a sick hubby in hospital with pneumonia which as you can imagine takes a while to get over.

Then two weeks ago I came down with a bug and was on antibiotics!  Now this week I have a snuffly cold!!   But it could be a lot worse so in that respect I am lucky.. cough, cough, sneeze, sneeze LOL.

Anyway, when I noticed that the Midweek Magnolia challenge was "Song Bird" I had just the right song in mind,

 - Stevie Wonder's "I just called to say I love you".

This was in the charts the last time that I spoke to my Dad in the UK for his birthday on the 12th December 1984.

Sadly he passed away in March 1985, this song will always remind me of my lovely Dad..



"Tilda with Big Ribbon" (You are Special Collection) 

I bought this stamp a couple of months ago but didn't know the name or collection it came from until I did a search today.. how apt is that (You are so Special collection) as my Dad was very special to me!

Cardstock is American Crafts cut into shape with Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Grand Labels One, I didn't want to make this too fussy so just used plain white and embossed two of the edges with Sizzix Scallop Doily set. The telephone is from my new Silhouette Cameo (which I am beginning to love), I used Copic markers to color Tilda and on part of the embossing too. The white daisies, pink roses and blue ribbon & lace are all from Paper2 my local craft store. I have used a few gems to highlight the blue and as usual for me Star Dust Ranger Stickles. 



I've put part of the song verse on the front of the card to leave the inside blank.


I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

 Until next time, take care, hugs x

Book Page cards

Hello, I recently watched a youtube video using old book pages! I've torn pages out of a book I'd read but didn't like, so...
