CBCC #21- CD Inspiration

First off, I have to welcome another talented "Chick" to our group- Kim!
Glad to have ya, girl!

Now, this weeks challenge was to take your favorite CD to listen to while stamping and use it for inspiration. Sounds easy enough, right? Uh, one problem. I don't listen to CD's. While I stamp I usually (I'm talking 99% of the time) listen to Pandora on my computer. Have you heard of Pandora? It's very cool. You pick some artists or songs you like and then it plays music based on your selections. If there is something you don't like, you get to give it a "thumbs down" and they won't play it again. And the more songs you give a thumbs up or down the more specific your "station" becomes. Very cool. Did I say that already? Anyway... here is what my Pandora screen looked like the other day. I just did a screen shot so you all could see what I was talking about-


I pondered this challenge for a very long time. Finally I ended up with this card-



I used a stamp from Unity, CS from SU and the patterned paper is from the new DCWV Sweet Stack. The papers in this stack are so cute! Think cupcakes, lollipops, jelly beans, glitter and super cute designs. So, whatcha think?

Be sure to check out the rest of the chicks creations. And if you play with us, link back to Courtney's blog and be sure to use keyword CBCC21 if you upload to SCS.

Pin It!

Love this! I don't have mine done yet...won't probably until later this week but I was thinking the same thing...what do I do? I usually listen to the t.v. when I stamp 'cuz it is at night and my son is watching. When I do listen while stamping, though, it is a radio station and I was going to do the same thing...take a look at the home page. Great minds think alike!
