I love Tickle Tuesday. It gives me an excuse to do whatever I want with my card because I know it's going to someone who will appreciate it. This month, Sabrina has challenged us to sing, sing a song. I had to choose Escape (The Pina Colada Song), because it got so stuck in my Desmond's head last night we couldn't stop giggling about it. My kids have their own Amazon Prime playlist with over 150 songs on it by now. Whenever they hear a new song that they like, they ask me to put it on their playlist. We happened to hear The Pina Colada Song twice on Sunday, so onto the playlist it went. Last night was the first time I ever saw Desmond acknowledge that he had a song stuck in his head and he couldn't stop singing it. So next weekend we're going to have some pina coladas.
I chose this Bugaboo Stella image to represent the woman in the song. Obviously, things didn't wind up working out for the couple and now she sits on the beach (by the dunes on the Cape) sipping pina coladas and planning her escape.
Barbara's fun colors were perfect for this fun card. I used the blue and green food coloring to do a shaving cream stenciled BG to represent getting caught in the rain. Then I colored the image all up using this week's colors. I had to add this fun pina colada sticker, but also wanted to put it on a 45. I have no idea why, but I have somehow collected three copies of this song on 45. And yet, somehow I can't picture what color the label is. I choose to go with pina colada colored.
Fun challenges, ladies! I can't wait to browse these galleries. I might actually have some time today.

Oh my gosh- what a hoot! I laughed right out loud when I saw your awesome card. How many years have gone by since this great song came out? You represented that so well with this gal sitting on the beach Jen. Ha! Love the record and pina colada drink here too! You really rocked this challenge with this fabulous card! ~Karen.

Oh gosh, this is another one DH sings...and he never even suggested it. Just as well, I certainly wouldn't have known where to start on a card. What a wonderfully hilarious beach selfie. And I've GOT to get round to trying the shaving foam stencilling. I even have a new can sitting on my desk. That sticker is making me thirsty - hot, sunny day here.
