Are you ready to move to a different beat?




Get that toe a-tapping, because this set will have you Celebrating Good Times -- Come On! Build up those Buttercups in your life. Tell the crazy chicks you hang with that they are way too Superfly! We can almost guarantee you'll break into song while you stamp these musical memories. Mix and match the sentiments and graphics to create combinations that will have your besties saying, "Word Up!" This 4" by 6" set -- Marcella's Mixtape Vol. 1 -- was hand-drawn from the wonderfully creative pen of Marcella Hawley.


When I first set eyes on this set, I just FELL IN LOVE with that little tea cup of buttercups! Oh my -- so cute! So sweet! So, I just colored away. Even though this image is cute and sweet, when I saw it I just kept thinking of denim -- something easy breezy! That's why I paired up my image with some Bo Bunny polka dot paper. The yellow was a scrap I had in my bin - I thought the color was perfect! Add the sentiment, some wooden buttons threaded with burlap twine. I paper pierced the strip of blue paper and then sanded the holes so that it would look a little worn. Add some glitter to the center of the flowers -- and that, my friends, is it!

Here's a close up!


So, now that you have a little tune stuck in your head, why not dance it out? Twist on over and see the rest of the Bloom Brigade!

Ooooh, I so love this card. Julie, you really captured summer. What a fantastic image by Marcella and sentiment. This takes me back to childhood days, picking buttercups to take in to my mom. Thanks for the memories. This is on my wish list.

Fun! I just love that song too. It reminds me of the movie Something About Mary, where the whole cast gets into the song!
