When You're Down And Troubled - and You Need Some Loving Care......

The Way's to Use It challenge over on Split Coast yesterday was to use music in some form on your card. So I started my music theme card with this music sheet patterned paper.


Then when I decided to use this wonderful sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - all I could think of was the Carole King song "You've Got a Friend' from the Tapestry Album - that album hit the charts when I was a freshman in college (yes, I'm THAT old!) and every time I hear any of the songs on it I'm back in my dorm room with Carole King's voice blaring out the windows onto the campus!!  Boy, those were the days!


I also used Wednesday's sketch from SCS - changing it up a bit by replacing the 3rd square with a button. I sponged all the edges with Scattered Straw ink.

Thanks for coming by today - we're heading into the weekend - whoo hoo!!  and here in New England we're hoping for some sun after 2 weeks of rain and drizzle!

Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy - Let Go and Let God
Paper: white, true black - PTI, DP Provocrafts - Heritage Music Score
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Ranger Distress - Scattered straw
Accessories: foam tape, twine & vintage button - PTI, glue dots, ribbon - May Arts
