Speedy Fox & Friends 148 - My State

Hi!  Wow, we made it to the end of the week!!!  That means it's Speedy Fox & Friends time!  Our challenge this week is to create a card with something about the State we live in.   Join us HERE to see all the lovely inspiration and get the info on how to play along this week!  At the bottom of this post you can see the stamp set you could win for playing along!

My first thought when I think of my state is the Peach.  My husband's thought is all the pine trees and camping. Since I don't have any stamps that fit those stand out GA images, I was a tad stumped for a bit.   I tried a couple of things but they looked better in my head!!!  So I thought it would be fun to use the music score from JUST a NOTE  and pair it with the computer generated sentiment "Georgia on my mind". 

Inspiration struck for the GA flower when I glanced at the shelf with my stamp box.  I always place the brand new stamps in front and vertical so that they are visible above the box.  My eye caught at the clover from Lots of Luck  that was placed in  front.  I stamped it twice and added a die cut  center and I think it makes a pretty good Cherokee Rose (GA state flower). 



Stamp sets used:

Just a Note

Supplies used:  Stamps MFP a HC - Lots of luck, Just a note.  Paper:  American Crafts  and  Misc. CS.  Access: Die-namics medium flourish, Botanical Beauty

  1. What a fantastic card, Angie. I love how you used a song for the theme for your state card. It took me a minute to realize you used the shamrock stamp for the flower. Brilliant idea. I lived in Georgia many moons ago in the small town of Winder. I really liked it there.

  2. Hi Angie - thanks for stopping by my blog - I love the MUSIC paper on your card and especially the song - did you see his movie about Ray Charles? I was some movie to watch and see what he went through during his life time - love to hear him sing! Thanks for a great display! Enjoy your weekend! Gail
