CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #46–Name That Tune!!

Are any of you old enough to remember that show?!  I totally remember it – and I SUCKED at it!  LOL  I usually couldn’t figure out what the song was until way too many notes . . . good thing I never had to play in real life!  LOL

CFC46 - Name That Tune
Well, since I’ve already admitted that I’m old enough to remember Name That Tune, I guess it’s not so far fetched that I’d admit that Debby Boone's version of You Light Up My Life was one of my most FAVORITE songs in high school.  I knew that song, word for word, and sang it at the top of my bloody lungs every time it came on the radio!  LOL  Come on – sing it with me! 
Amazing, right?!  LOL
STAMPS:  Eureka Light Bulbs (Maya Road), Grunged Sunrays (A Muse Studio), Smoocheroos (Paper Smooches)
INK:  VersaMark and Onyx Black VersaFine (Tsukineko), Fresh Snow (PTI)
PAPER:  Lemon Drop CS (French Poptone), White CS (Neenah), Cherry Cheesecake CS (Bazzill Basics Paper), Linen Vellum (PTI)
ACCESSORIES:  Lemon Drop Baker’s Twine (The Twinery), Bright White Embossing Powder (WOW!), Linen/Canvas Impression Plate (PTI), Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!), Heart (Silhouette Studio)
I seriously had a blast with this challenge.  You so need to pop into the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to see the eye candy that the other Girl Fridays have cooked up for your inspiration.  It’s some great stuff, I tell ya!
Oh, and if you haven’t done it already, I hope you’ll consider applying to the CAS-ual Fridays Design Team – we’re looking for some new designers!  So if, clean and simple is your go-to card style, you really should apply!!  You can get all the details HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I’m so appreciative of the time that you take to pop in and say hello.  I have a very busy weekend ahead of me, but I’m hoping to get some crafty time in there, too.  I haven’t really gotten inky since I got back from Seattle and Boston on Monday – it’s killing me not to get my stamp on!!  Hope you have a great weekend, too!!
