Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Hi All!  I can't believe that a whole week has gone by and it's time for another challenge over at Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges- I guess time really does fly by when you're having fun :)  We have an awesome challenge for you this week...Use a Music Sheet...and you don't know how excited I was for this particular challenge!  See, before cardmaking was ever something I was into I expressed my creativity in another way- music.  I've played piano since I was five and starting singing in the 4th grade- I eventually even went to college on a music scholarship for voice.  While my dreams of becoming a huge pop singing sensation never came true music is still something that's as much a part of my everyday life as card making has become.  So the chance to marry the two things I love together was AWESOME.  You'd think because I have so much music floating around everywhere it would make things easy but it's kind of like when you're at the candy shop and you have so many choices it takes you hours to decide because you want to pick just the right thing :)  Since I couldn't do a billion cards for this one challenge I started looking through my Tickled Pink images and thinking of all the different songs that could go with them.  I settled on a theme using Lil Pinkette Tom Boyz Baseball Pippa that I think turned out pretty good if I do say so myself...it's to bad the song's so catchy because I caught myself singing it repeatedly as I assembled my card :)  I can promise that you'll be seeing some more music inspired cards in the near future because even if I couldn't do a whole billion cards for this one challenge my mojo definitely kicked into high gear and that inspiration has got to be put to good use!  Please stop by the challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT's amazing creations because, as always, they have all totally knocked it out of the park with this one!  And if you have time I hope you'll join in the challenge and share the fun, just remember to use a Tickled Pink image!

Katie, wow, what fabulous fun this is!!! I love it! Lil Pinkette Pippa looks adorable and is perfectly paired with your sheet music! And your coloring is top-notch! I wish I had musical talent of any kind, but alas! I do not. Gorgeous creation here! Your lovely work has been delightful to see on the TPSC blog every week! :)

Such a creative card Katie, love the pairing of image and music...it's perfect and so fun! Your coloring is fabulous!
I'd love to be musically gifted, I love to sing but only by myself in the car! In that setting I can really belt out some tunes! LOL!
