Cut it Up – Inspired by a song

CIU challenge blogWere you ever inspired by a song?  That’s the theme this week at Cut it Up Challenge Blog.  I was the design team member who came up with this theme, and was annoyingly surprised that nothing was coming to me. 😦

Then when my husband and I were traveling and listening to music on the iPod, I put the Simon and Garfunkel 59th Street Bridge Song on repeat.  It’s so much fun to sing!  And I remembered my Groovy Times Cricut cartridge and actually was inspired by a song.  I was Feelin’ Groovy!  Slow down, you’re moving too fast!  You’ve got to make the morning last . . .

I chose the Peace Sign on page 60 to make some birthday cards.

P1080813webI used a sketch from Operation Write Home again.  They have a fantastic 6 x 6 “one sheet wonder” kind of cutting formula here, but it’s many sheets, not one.  I used Dotty for You CTMH retired paper (wish they still had this.  I’d buy a dozen packs to keep on hand!);  Maya Road twine cording in Ginger Root Brown (thought it looked 60-ish.  It reminded me of macrame.); and Recollections brads.

I popped up the peace sign.

  1. I know that peace sign was definitely MY generation. I see you are staying on your mission. Using one cricut cartridge a week…bravo! And, I truly enjoy your card and the song!

    That is the song that I am singing in my head whenever I see your card. I didn’t remember that was the title of the song, but it’s been awhile 🙂 Your card definitely has me “feelin’ groovy.”
