Well, neither of these is the card I want to make...I'll get there yet.
One masculine - Summertime and the Living is Easy
One feminine - You're the Cream in my Coffee

I'm afraid that once my Hills are Alive morphed from music into mEWESic, my musical muse took flight.

I had so many show tunes going through my mind I wasn't sure which to settle on....but when I saw these stickers, I knew what to create!

Singing in the Rain

Thank you so much Dina, for reminding us on the gallery to put our cards in! I had placed mine in "member galleries"!

I chose the song "Things Are Looking UP", and to get us there I've provided a little balloon transportation. We'll all be looking up!

I made another one, inspired by the song "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" and a card by bfinlay - the connection between the 2 inspirations was the song popping into my head after seeing a card in the gallery and knowing it was hers before I even saw her name!

I thought I was using "The Three Musketeers", but then I remembered it was song choice, not movie choice. However, the entire time I was making this, Bryan Adams was signing "All for One" in my head, so I guess my movie choice was actually "Robin Hood". That's okay too.
