Well, today is another CBC Challenge Day. And this week's challenge is to make a card that is inspired by your favorite cd. It sounds like a fun idea, doesn't it? HA! You fool! I thought so to! In fact, I hate to admit it, but it was even my idea to have this challenge in the first place! Seriously, what was I thinking? *sigh* ETA: I just realized this is next week's challenge! Bwa ha ha ha! This week's is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Ah well, you can't win 'em all. Take a look at my ugly card, then go RRR! :o)
Ok, maybe it's not that bad, but it certainly was a challenge. I guess that's why Tuesday's aren't CBC Make-a-really-easy-card days, huh? ;o)
I thought about all of my favorite cd's (I have about 20 faves out of the 575 I own, and no, neither number is a typo), and I wasn't getting any inspiration from any of them. So then I thought I'd just flip through all of them until I found one that kinda looked like a card. Bingo! The Show Boat Soundtrack totally fit the bill! I could use my oval nesties, and layer a sentiment, stick it on a blue background, and voila! BUT, then my conscience got the best of me, and I realized that easy as it may be, that was not one of my favorite cds. *sigh*
So, I buckled down, and found inspiration in my favorite girls (no Mindee, not *those* girls. HA!), The Dixie Chicks. I lurvvvve the Chicks! My bff Chris and I saw them in concert in Minneapolis and they were a.ma.zing. Loved it! Anyhow, here is their cd:
And here is my card:
So anyway, there's my card. And yeah, it's kinda ugly. But in a strange way, I kind of like it, too. I don't know how to explain it.
Check out the links to the other CBC Chicks in my sidebar to see what everyone else created. And when you play along (because I know you will, right?!), post a link to your card back on Courtney's blog for a chance to win a little prize!
And big thanks to everyone who tried to guess my middle name. I knew none of you would get it! I was named after my great grandmother, Bessie. Therefore, my name is Sarah Bess. I was not always a fan of it, but I have loved it for many years now, and even more so since my grandma passed. It's a nice connection to her, as she was one of my favorite people in the world.
