Muse #9, CASology #36 (Song)

This is the first time I’ve been able to get to my craft desk all week … and my contact with the computer’s been almost non existent too … so I’m pleased to squeeze in a little time in blogland to catch up and decontract!  First off, many many thanks to Judy for choosing my extraterrestrial card (ha, said it again!) for a CASology Honourable Mention, it made this non-crafty, non-bloggy week very smiley!  Next, some belated birthday greetings to Kim at cupcakescardsandkim … hope you had a very happy day!  Finally I have a card to share which is for Muse, where the inspiration card comes from the highly talented Marion Vagg, and for Casology, where the theme is ‘Song’ … here’s Marion’s card …


… and here’s my take …

Muse 9, CASology 36

I focused on the white embossing over colour blocks and the sentiment from Paper Smooches … and my song to go with it is ‘Lavender’s Blue’ … the colours fit and the flower image seemed to me to go with the ‘dilly, dilly’ words that follow!

I have just a few minutes to link, so I’m off to do that … I’ll be travelling the blogiverse later to see all the lovely cards everyone’s made.  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are a delight!  Anita 🙂

Edit a few minutes later … my timing was out and I missed the deadline at Muse (by an hour … is EST already on summertime?) oh well, I’ll know for next week!

    And Lavender’s Blue also goes with, you guessed it, BOWIE! (Heroes – actually only one version of Heroes, now that I think about it). I’m sorry you missed the Muse deadline – yes we spring-ed ahead on March 9. But you made it for CASology – these colours are just stunning together! Thanks for playing along!

    A lovely card. Love your colours and design. Sorry you missed out on MUSE
    The first song I thought of for the CASology challenge was Tie My Kangaroo Down but you had used that previously and I couldn’t top that card

    So sorry you missed the Muse deadline! I hate when that happens and it happens a lot to me. I’m so glad you visited my blog so I would know to come look at this beautiful card!
