Help Me Out...

Happy Monday! We have a snow day today. Snow days USED to be my favorite thing in the world. But, now that I'm a working mom, they are a PAIN! I hate the 'child care juggling' thing...

I'm looking for some help in regards to songs. I am planning to do something for my DH and need songs that are sentimental and 'good' for a daddy and me theme. Could you share some of your favorites with me??? Thanks!

Anyway, just wanted to share a couple of things. This first card uses some of my Papertrey favorites. I used Big and Bold Wishes along with Polka Dot Basics II. I also used my favorite cardstocks - Kraft and Vintage cream.




The ink is Pure Poppy. The tags are Making Memories and that pretty flower is Prima.

This next card is a quick and easy one. I used Basic Grey Eskimo kisses paper along with a chipboard sentiment from K and Co. The ribbon and button are Papertrey and the chipboard heart is Melissa Frances.



That's it for today. The next couple of days are going to be quite busy. I've finished my shopping but haven't even started wrapping.

Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

The prima flower on your first card is gorgeous!

As for songs, what about Butterfly Kisses (I can't remember who sings it) or Sunrise, Sunset from Fiddler on the Roof. That one will be WAY on the sentimental side.

Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle is the first song that came to my mind as well.
Love the cards!

Gorgeous cards, Anabelle! What about that cute song from Toy Story "You've Got a Friend in Me"? :)

I just wanted to say I love your blog. I have been following it for a long time now.
As for the songs, the first one I thought of was a favorite of my husbands. It is "Just the Two of Us" by Will Smith.
Have a great day.

hmmm...I am afraid I do not have any good songs for you. I do have to say that your projects are as stunning as always! Merry Christmas!

Gorgeous cards, Anabelle. Love your use of Big & Bold Wishes. That set is on its way to me. Can't wait to play with it. Unfortunately I can't think of any songs right now.

Happy Holidays!!

How about "The Times of your Life" by Paul Anka? I believe that's the name and singer anyway (I'm aging myself as I think Kodak used it for a theme song years ago).

Neil Sedaka has recently put out a CD "remaking" some of his tunes for kids. "Lunch will Keep Us Together" is one of my faves. My son loves it!!!
