Love is in the Air
Love is in the air / Everywhere I look around / Love is in the air / Every sight and every sound
Hee, hee, I picture robots with this song. Why? It is featured in Wall-E, the Pixar movie from Disney, a movie my boys love to watch. Now, the robots never wore itsy bitsy bikinis or swim trunks, but the idea is the same, right?
Jenny at Wee Memories is having a Summer Fun Challenge, the starting basis for this card. I don't often send out summer cards (clarification: I don't often send out cards period), so I wanted to create one with dual meaning, perhaps an engagement, wedding shower or wedding? I paper-pieced some Lawn Fawn goodies and adhered them to a floss clothesline (the clothespins for the swimming trunks are the exclamation point from one sentiment if you are curious). The floss was really putzy and messy to glue down-the whole time I was thinking that I really need to purchase Barefoot Summer from Practicing Creativity Designs, where the clotheline and clothespins are stamps! There are a few things I would change if I made this card again, but overall, I think the idea is rather fun (its like one pattern from Cosmo Cricket's The Boyfriend Collection). I think I'll take another gander at the Moxie Fab World's Fun and Cute Challenge as well.
