Inspired By A Song Blog Hop - 7 April

Hello and welcome to the Inspired By A Song Blog Hop!

This is gonna be a good one!  Music is such a good remedy in our busy lives.  Whether we're singing in the shower, in the car, doing kareoke or just watching TV or the radio and hearing a good song, it's so good and just seems to make things better!

Anyway, enough of my blethering!  Time for the important details!

My great friend Gill McCall is hosting this blog hop.  If you're on track, you should have hopefully arrived her from Dandy's Blog.    If not, it would be fantastic if you could start from the beginning.  So hop on over to Gill's Blog to start back at the beginning if you haven't already.

So, in this Inspired By A Song blog hop, I have made a card for my friends wee boy who will be 3 in May.

I'll let you see the card first, and then see if you can guess what the song is!  So here are some photos of my card.  Apologies for the funny lines, there's holographic areas on the card which seems to catch the light, and I had to use the flash which didn't help matters!

So, can you guess what the song is?  Yep, it's "Rocket Man" by Elton John.  I really like Elton John and think he is so talented.  I was lucky enough to see him in concert in July 2007 when he came to the Highland capital, Inverness.  It was an amazing night!.

Elton John - Rocket Man - Live from Madison Square Garden

To make this card, I used the following materials:

8x8 card blank
Orange card
Hunky Dory Adorable Scorable Rocket Man Backing Card & Topper Images
Double Sided Sticky Tape
3D Foam
"Star Dust" Stickles
"Gold" Stickles
"Blue" Stickles
Pokey Tool

And that's that!  Hope you liked my card.  I would love to hear your comments!  Please now hop on over to Lisa T's Blog to complete the hop. 

Can't wait to see what everyone else has made for this hop!  Happy Hopping!
