Race you to the top of the morning, Come sit on my shoulders and ride

Happy Saturday! I got some happy mail yesterday...new stamps from Em at Stamping Bella! This cutie pie is Penelope with Prezzies...she's so strange and akward I could just eat her up! How about you?

So here's my interesting card for Jen's Sketch for You to Try this week. I love all the elements, but together? I'm not so sure. It's a little bit country, a little bit rock & roll.

Some of you guys wonder the thought process behind coming up with a title for my posts. Well, I'll share, but you gotta follow me, k? Usually as I'm making a card, I'm singing a song. Not out loud but in my head (cause the boys are sleeping). But the song comes from something on the card. Tonight I was singing the Secret Garden. Why? Well, because Penelope sounds like a British name to me. No? And when I had the Secret Garden Soundtrack (no idea where it is now), it was from the Original London Cast. They all had accents. So the man (what was his name who owned the house?) popped into my head singing the song about the dragon to Colin. It's a beautiful song (probably the most touching in the whole show)...you can see the whole thing here if you care to. And there you have the lyric for the title of the post!

Are you bored yet? Or do you do what I do and just skim and look at the pictures? *wink*

I'll leave you with the recipe for my strange and interesting card, but don't forget to check out what awesome things Carole & Susan have done with this week's sketch. If you upload to SCS, please put SFYTT in the keywords so we can look at all your awesome creations! Have a great weekend!
