Do you have The Blues Brewin'? (click for song)

I have always liked listening to the blues. Billie Holiday nicknamed Lady Day is one of my favorites.  Estelle at  The Stampsmith has a wonderful Bille Holiday stamp along with other late great artists. All of the movie star photostamps can be found here,  there will be a prompt for Username and Password both are  "movies" with no quotations. It is well worth the click.

It was such a beautiful Sunday here in Michigan  I wanted to sing out.....rejoice. Here is what I came up with.  I was also playing with  free photo editing software Picasa and Picnik.  Enjoy your time here no one is in a rush.

Wow! Such dynamic color richness, and a feeling of freedom! Did you punch your flowers from mulberry paper? Then color them? I have trouble punching through mulberry paper. Do you put it between text weight paper then punch? The colors are amazing. Thanks for another great card share, Linda!
