Hey Pixie...

Look who I found while rummaging around in a pile of stash...


*happiest of happy sighs*
Love you lovely Pixie...

I made this li'l darlin' for the Passion for ProMarkers "Back to Nature" challenge and got so back to nature with it I stuck a whole bunch of freaky-weird flowers on it...


Some serious scrumminess going on here - quite apart from my beloved Pixie (who can be found here), there's even more MME Quite Contrary-ness.
These are from the "Jack & Jill" collection and can be found here at Dies to Die For or here at CleoCrafts...


I also have a card for the PaperPlay "Just Because" challenge...



My littlest big brother and I spent much of the late '90's {drunkenly} singing parodies of karaoke classics in the Student Union {£50 cash to be won each Thursday...desperate times you understand}. Our version of "You're so Vain" was a definite fave - anyone who ever had to fight over the bathroom as a teen will surely be able to guess the way that particular song went ;D I have no doubt that if we'd spent a fraction of the time actually studying as we did writing those parodies, we'd both be actual real geniuses right about now...

So yeah...the card...
It's a "just because I knew as soon as I saw this stamp that I was gonna make this card as a celebration of the wasted student years of two siblings" just because kinda card.
He started singin' when he opened it...

Right, I'm off - typing all that with only one working eye was rather tricky. If this gooeyness carries on much longer I shall be taking Annie's advice and making myself an eye patch. Probably a pink gingham one. With bling and ribbons...
Hugs,

Just in case anyone fancies a little sing-a-long {c'mon, you're singing it already aren't ya?} here's Ms Simon's original version.
Ya ready? One, two, three...
"You walked into the party, like you were walking onto a yacht.
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye, your scarf it was apricot..."

Hi Leann fabulous card that little pixie is so cute and adorable the colours you have used show her off perfectly and I am also loving the boy/mac card as soon as I saw the lyrics I thought of my 19yr old son he is always looking in the mirror and admits that he is so vain lol.

Hugs

You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and......
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you,
You're so vain,
I'll bet you think this song is about you,
Don't you? Don't you?

I had to sing the chorus my fav part and it always reminds me of the movie "How to lose a guy in 10 days" that was funny!

ONTO the cards sides of things. Absolutely love your use of the Swiss Pixie, the papers were made for her and your male card I just LOVE! The stamp sentiment! I have to get me one! LOVE it!
Hugs Kel xx

Maria Therese said...

But Leann!!! Flowers??????? wow!! I wonder what if you winn my candy??? will you survive getting flowers in the mail??? *lol* just had to be abit funny, feeling I'm kind of getting to know you ;)

And I think your cars are wonderful! I just love your brothers card too, your so good with boys cards! With two girls running around ( well the 10 month old is not so much running yet..) I seem only to know how to make the sweet cards.. :-p

Suzanne said...

OMG this is Beautiful flowers and all!!! I love the colour combo thanks for joining us at PFP this week Sue :o)

Annie said...

wot, no string!!!!!! I need to lie down to recover, and you have flowers! oh the shock of it!!!! 'tis rather beautiful though, and as for that 'ansum buy' as they say around these parts, well what can I say! Now when you make the pink gingham eye patch don't forget the bit of string and a button, and a piccie please .. ..!
hope you is starting to see a bit better but don't strain with the stitching, you are doing remarkably well with just the one eye though, just think what you could do with 2! ok, I'll shut up and go now.
hugs, annie x

Two fab cards, Leann. I love the stitched layers of paper on the first (scrummy papers too!), and the second - what a perfect "just because" card. Love it. Great image, great sentiment.
