Birthday Song: Ephesians 5:19-20

Happy Sunday! This means that Stampin' Sisters in Christ has another challenge based on scripture for you! Another birthday card for you today. This one I can fill in the name and it will be perfect for some of the "tween" birthday grand-kids. Those are another challenge for me.

This week our music lover MariLynn is the challenge hostess and the verse she chose is Ephesians 5:19-20. Be sure to read her devotion for this week over on SSIC.
"Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Music makes me smile. Living in Florida requires many lawn mowing days for many months of the year, it is a chore that I do enjoy. I pop in my little IPod Nano and I mow for about 2 hours listening to my wonderful Christian music. I think good thoughts no matter what is going on in my daily life because I am basically communicating with God for those 2 hours. I cannot sing well but over the lawn mower noise no one but God can hear my anyway. I love it!

The challenge this week is to create a project that shows some element of music.

I used to GKD stamp sets for this card and decided to dust of my Kaleidacolor inkpad to stamp the adorable juke box from Gleefully Yours. The sentiment is from the Candles on your Cake set. I heat embossed the notes and the sentiment and added a cute little birthday hat. It was a fun card to make. 

This week our sponsor is Fred She Said. You will receive a $15 gift card to shop with, there are some wonderful fall digital images to be found. 

Don't forget to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week.

Miesje - Your thoughts about mowing and singing made me smile! I can't sing, but neither do I mow so I save my singing for my alone time :) This is a great card! Great for those "tween" grand kids! Love the colors!
Many blessings,

Oh...take me back to the day! I so remember going to the local soda fountain after school and putting my quarter in the jukebox for 5 songs. I'd sit with the girls and sip on vanilla phosphates...hoping that my heart throb would walk through the door on just the right song, that would make him forever mine! What a fun card, Miesje, and cute story!

I am sorry I am so late stopping by everyone's blogs but I know this caught my eye right away because I am a fan of kaleidacolor pads and what more perfect image to use that pad on than the juke box? I remember when I was a kid jukeboxes always had flashing colored lights that went around the rim, so that couldn't be more perfect! And I enjoy mowing the lawn too. :) I'll have to try singing along as I mow next time, great idea!
