Shopping Our Stash #151 - Sing it to Me (Inspired by a song)

Hello peeps! Happy Tuesday to you all! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we want you to make a card or project that is inspired by a song. Oh, and Happy Birthday is NOT an option! (That's what a challenge is all about - to challenge you!) LOL! Anyhoooo, here's my card:

Here is the inside of my card:

So, here's the back story: A couple Saturdays ago, the hubby and I went to meet some friends at a bar, to listen to a band that another friend of ours is the lead singer in. Since I had my designated driver (hubby) with me, I made the fatal error of drinking wine instead of beer. Well, I apparently was "over served", since the next day I was suffering from "flu-like" symptoms. (We had a great time though!) Thus, the inspiration for my card. The design is based off of CAS(E) this Sketch #75

So, now that I've made your day with the story of my epic failure at the bar, why not make the song that is always playing in your head into a card or project? Just link it up at Shopping Our Stash so we can check it out! Please be sure to check out what my teamies created for this challenge also! Thanks for stopping by, now go forth and get your craft on!

Great card, and a remarkably familiar story lol. Fabulous take on the sketch.

love the card, love the story, love the INSIDE of the card, too! (which is technically covered by the first "love the card" but kind of goes beyond that, so i thought i'd mention it again. :)

HA! I'm a one-glass gal myself these days. I'm too old to deal with the next day. :)

I love this sketch and how you've done it. It's on my list of sketches to not get done in time this week. :)

Karen Schroeder said...

Hmmm, I think I've heard this story before. Love the drink glass die!

Pretty sure we've all lived the day after woes...but seriously. It's like the next thing you know, it's hangover & wait, I was just having fun! What happened???
Excellent way to work through the after-pain, though - now you can think of it every time you see this card :)

Always blame the food, never the over-service. ;) And this is a perfect card for your song inspiration! Mmm, wine.

Audrey Pettit said...

Very cute, Chris...both the story and the card!
