Song inspiration

Sunday's here, and it's a week to Christmas!

This week at Sentimental Sundays our challenge is to make a card with a sentiment, inspired by a song.  I chose to use the song "I'll be home for Christmas" which is one of my favorite Christmas songs.

The main image is a Thomas Kinkaid one from Cornish Heritage Farms, stamped with Sepia Versafine on Glossy cardstock.  The light brown cardstock in the upper corner background is coordinations paper, embossed and sanded.  The sentiment is a digi from Raindrop Echo Designs, available at the Whimsy store.

At work last week we were playing Christmas music, and one of my colleagues was asking us each for our favorite so she could play it for us.  It was neat and interesting, and a bit surprising too, to hear which songs everyone liked best.  My favorite is a tied...I like the song "My favorite things" which is played a lot at this time of year, but I'm not sure if it's technically a Christmas song.  for a "real" Christmas song, I like Silent Night best.  What about you?

  4. Very nice, I love the layers. Great color combo too, reminds me of warmth and winter. I think my favorite song would be "Little Drummer Boy" or "So You Hear What I Hear". I love Christmas music though and love all the songs.

  6. Just gorgeous, Kristina! That image is stunning and I love how you added the warm winter glow coming from the windows. I really like "White Christmas" probably because we don't see them here! :)

  7. Love the card Kristina. You do such a great job of using those TK images and making each one different (not just the image alone.)

    I love all Christmas Music. My new favourite one this year is "It Snowed Last Night."
