I've been kind of amazed at the variety of challenges people have come up with -- I never would have guessed there'd be an Elvis challenge. As I noted on my card description, Elvis and I share a birthday (same day, way different years!)
Here's my card .

If anything good comes out of cancer, it shows up in relationships. My dad is not the most demonstrative guy and he never did much around the home. I was really concerned about how he would be as a caregiver, but I'm here to tell you that he has been INCREDIBLE. Not only has he picked up tasks around the home from laundry to cooking, but he has been an awesome encouragement to my mom saying and doing the right things when she was struggling with body image and other concerns. All this to say, the Elvis song I thought of was "Can't help falling in love" because I have seen my parents fall in love with each other all over again in new and deeper ways through her cancer journey.
Inspired Rustic Love

Finally! I used this week's technique challenge to do a couple high-gloss guitars. Close enough. (NOT an Elvis fan...)

BCRibbon Danny Boy

When I first saw this challenge, I was stumped. I do not have any hound dog stamps nor any shoe stamps (to do Blue Suede Shoes) and then I looked at the attached list. That Elvis was a busy guy wasn't he? I decided I would incorporate as many as the songs on the list as I could possibly cram on one card. The truck is attached to the card with wire so it wiggles. Here is my card and the story that goes along with it:

HYCCT1321-ELVIS!-sj929 by sadiejane929 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Meet "Danny Boy" , he is a "Brown Eyed Handsome Man" headed to the "Heartbreak Hotel" . He would be a "Lonely Man" except for his "Hound Dog" enjoying "A Dog's Life" riding in the back of the pickup in spite of the "Kentucky Rain" and being "All Shook Up" . They can't wait to have their walk in the "Green, Green Grass of Home" !

If anyone would like to continue the story, feel free to add on!

Growing up... My favorite ELVIS song was MAMA LIKED THE ROSES

Oh, mama liked the roses but most of all she cared
About the way we learned to live
And if we said our prayers

You know I kept the family bible
With a rose that she saved inside
It was pressed between the pages
Like it had found a place to hide

Oh, mama liked the roses in such a special way
We bring them every Mother's Day
And put them on her grave
Oh, mama liked the roses
Mama liked the roses

Hi Vannessa,

Here is my card. All I could think of was Blue Suede Shoes, so mine is Blue Suede Slingback Pumps. Great challenge!

With best wishes,
Rosy

Wow! I have been ill with a nasty cold this week so haven't been able to get on here and all the new cards are just fantastic. So many brilliant interpretations of Elvis songs! (I think the people at the MD Anderson Centre are going to think we've all gone Elvis mad, which we have a bit haven't we?!). My wishlist for new stamps and dies has greatly grown to through seeing all the fabulous cards in the gallery, so a HUGE thank you from me for joining in with my challenge, but not from my bank balance!

For my card I used Elvis' song title " Apron Strings " ( hence the apron! ) from 1959, from the album "A Life in Music" as my inspiration.

How Sweet It Is!

I was inspired by Elvis Presley's song "Wooden Heart" for this challenge! Had some fun with this one!! I will admit that it was probably the most difficult challenge yet, I couldn't get any ideas to come out! Seems it finally clicked.

Here's my Bridge over troubled water . I didn't believe he really sang this Simon & Garfunkel song until I saw the video on YouTube. I like his rendition too

Thanks for the fun challenge...I've been singing Elvis songs for days! I was stumped at first but remembered this stamp with the mailbox and immediately thought of the song "Return to Sender", woohoo. Thanks for the fun. Here is my card:
