Ah One...and Ah Two....

So many of you are not gonna get that at all! I grew up watching Lawrence Welk with my gramma and that was the way he got the band in sync to start the next piece of music. I still remember the Lennon Sisters and the champagne bubbles. I preferred Mitch Miller myself and learned so many songs singing along with the bouncing ball. This mouse will now be Mitch Mouse as I have no idea what his real name is.

All of the stamps used on this card were from Great Impressions and the mouse image is officially called Happy Tunes-that isn't a name, so it will stay Mitch. He and the other image stamp were inked with Black dye ink and colored with Prismacolors and Gamsol. I cut the mouse to a small rectangle and found some card stock layers to match the print paper I had chosen and layered them all. The candle image/phrase was punched with an oval and backed with a scalloped oval piece. These punches are all the rage and I had to wait forever on a waiting list to get this one.

I started the card with a minty green base and folded it in half (A2) and chose a striped layer to place across the bottom half. Then matching the golden yellow in the stripes in card stock, I stamped the SOTM in Brilliance Moonlight White ink several times across the top and bottom of the yellow piece. That was layered across the middle of the card to butt up to the striped piece, leaving a small amount of the base green to show thru. I then cut two pieces of ribbon and attached them with Trio Tape Runner.

Layer on the images with their fun color backgrounds, add some Stickles for sparkle and let the music begin. Let me hear a melody....a simple singing song....I love to sing along...........Just follow the bouncing ball.
