Musical Inspiration

Here are the two cards I created for todays "Ways to Use it" Challenge. The rules were to create a card which included music in some way: symbols, lyrics, titles. I decided to go with the lyrics. I'd wanted to use the little cup for a long while, and anyone who know me knows I love the only coffee type song I know is Java Jive. I used to listen to Manhattan Transfer a lot...and now of course the song is in my head. My husband asked what occasion I would use this for....and then answered himself saying I could invite a friend for coffee with it.

I spotted the set with the bicycle in it and knew right away that I had to turn it into a bicycle built for two...especially since there are already daisies coming out of the basket. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the images lined up to turn a two wheeler into a three wheeler.

I have a number of other music cards which are posted on Splitcoast, to see those and all the other fantastic entries for todays challenge click on this LINK

For Friday...the "Limited Supply Challenge" is to make a card using :
Stamps: one flower stamp (sentiment optional)
No designer paper
No Cuttlebug
No background stamps
Any embellishments
No Rub-ons ... except for sentiments
