Happy Birthday

Good morning.. Before I begin I just want to share a serious pet peeve!! Music on the blogs. I am ready to just scream...I am one of those people who has 20 to 30 tabs open to comment, and how sad to hear 7 or 8 blogs with music going that I can not listen to so I shut off my own sound where I can not even enjoy my own music.  Maryilynn Degroot has one of the best ideas I have seen, she has placed U-Tube on her post's for people to play and hear, how novel is that! Which of coarse I can not even hear what she has because of the other 7 or 8 blaring their own music. From Christian, to rock, to country to easy listening, all of them playing at the same time..where you can not enjoy anything while on line.
 My goodness I wish they would just out law these dang gone things on the blogs..This is just my opinion, which I have a right to have!!

Now on to my card :)..
This is for Speedy the Fox  challenge #95, create a joy fold card. I got this fold from Beate, at Splitcoast Stampers. I made this as a birthday card for a friend who is turning 75 tomorrow.
You can not see to well from this photo but I added stickles.
Recipe:
Paper: Mark's finest papers, stamping up "Spring Silouettes".
Stamp: MFP "Floating along"
Misc: MS punch, stickles, copics.

Have a Blessed Day

Beautiful card....p.s. I agree on the music thing! I usually just shut up off, lol!

This is a beautiful and elegant birthday card, Becky. Your friend will love it!

I agree about the music! Wish there was an option on blogger that would give us a choice about listening or blocking music if we prefer. Right now, our only option is to mute the sound on our computers.

this is absolutley gorgeous!!!!!

Well said Becky and I agree with you 100% I hate hearing music on blogs and it takes longer to load the page! Thanks for speaking out!
Your card today is beautiful and elegant! Love the the touch of stickles on her feathers!

Becky, this is stunning!!! Love the image and all the shine to it. Just simply a gorgeous creation!

I'm the same way as you about the music on blogs....I have my vol. turned all the way down all the time now and that way I don't hear it so it no longer bothers me. Just one of my deals as I still love looking at all the blogs!

What a lovely sparkly card!!! Works out perfectly!!! (AND I agree about the music!!! -)) Thanks for sharing with Speedy Fox and Friends!

seamom said...

Beautiful, Becky! Admire all the bling. ("admire" because my devotional yesterday talked about our overuse of the word "love". God alone is "LOVE".)

Pat Garvin said...

Very very pretty. Thanks for joining speedy Fox and Friends.

Patti J said...

Becky, your card is just gorgeous! I love the bit of stickles - adds just the right amount of sparkle! Oh my, as for the music, I tend to only open one tab at a time as my connection is pretty slow, so that's not an issue for me. I actually enjoy many of the blogs with music. However, I can sure see how it might be for someone with several tabs opened at once! My pet peeve is the comment verification word scrambling. I think Blogger has changed their scrambling, and it's SO difficult to read. At times, I will type a comment three or four times, trying to get the code in their right, and finally just give up and leave the wonderful blog. Okay, now we have both vented...lol! Hugs, sweetie - have a nice evening.

Holly said...

I'm not a fan of music on blogs either. I usually scroll down and find the player and pause it. your card is just gorgeous Becky. Love the design and the paper you used.

Denise Marzec said...

Gorgeous!!

had to smile! you rarely vent and glad you did (-:
your card is a beauty and thanks for joining us at Speedy the Fox!

ps I also agree with Patti J - hate that comment verification thing ...wish people would just use comment approval option. When you are visiting a lot of blogs that verification thing is a real pain

and congrats on your win at MFP Speedy the Fox last week (-:

I was chuckling as I read your post aobut the music, I have my computer on mute so I don't have to listen to any music. Love your card that swan just glows. Love it.

Scrubbybubbles(sue) said...

Just lovely! and the details are beautiful. Have a great week becky. :)

Julie Short said...

Music No! A beautiful card - absolutely!
What a wonderful depiction of a scene I saw numerous times in the Cotswolds when I went looking for the graceful white swans.

Betty Benton said...

Lovely card!! Glad you added the close up so we could see the "sparkly"!

I'm with you on the music -- also with Patti J. on the word verification -- those new two word things are awfully hard to read!

Donna Heber said...

Hi Becky,

Your card is beautiful and I love the swan image. It is so peaceful and relaxing. I will take the music off my blog.

Colleen Dietrich said...

Hello Becky! I have to say I share your opinion about the music on the blogs. Sometimes, if I don't realize my volume is pretty high, and then I open a blog with music streaming, it scares me off my chair.

I love this image from Floating Along, and you made it even prettier with that shimmery sparkle!

Have a blessed day!!

MiamiKel said...

Beautiful card, Becky.

Lynn McAuley said...

I love the peaceful silence of a blog with no music as well, Rebekka!!

Beautiful work with this graceful swan!

Tammylee said...

Great card and perfect for our challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends!

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

You go right ahead and vent. We all have something. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous swan with us. I have one real one left on the lake. He was able to stay all winter due to the warm temps. Boy is he fat! All he does is dive and eat weeds.

Gorgeous card, I love the coloring. Thanks for playing along with us here at Speedy Fox and Friends challenge, we hope to see you again next week. Make sure to check out our challenge with Friends of SpeedyTV for more fun with Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.

This is such a pretty MFP set!

Jani Lewis said...

Beautiful card. I totally agree about the music on blogs. I usually turn my sound off just because of it. But every now and then I forget to turn off the speakers and then the music annoys me and make me want to close that blog page. It also takes up more time and computer space because the computer to working to load the music.

Rea said...

Beautiful card, the swan is so pretty. And lovely DP. The Stickles are a nice addition, I love Stickles.

Betty Wright said...

Love the sparkle on the swan, Becky! Lovely card! I so agree with you about the music thing! I have to keep the mute button on all the time just for that reason.

Emkay said...

This is gorgeous. I love the colours and the stickles are a great touch.

Also, I definitely agree with you about music on blogs.

KER said...

stunning...i'm sure your friend will love it

Danie May said...

Bekky this is so very beautiful. The image is wonderful and so striking against the beautiful punched borders and I love the touch of glitter.

Diane Clark-Sutton said...

Gorgeous card. Great job with the coloring.

Rhonda Langley said...

Great touch with the stickles! Swans are such a lovely bird. I have to admit I do get annoyed with music on blogs. I forget my sound is up and scare myself and everyone else around me!

redwasher1 said...

Becky, your card is beautiful!!! I agree with you about the music and sometimes I enjoy it. But other times I'm not expecting it and it makes me jump. So when I have a lot of commenting to do I mute it.

Heather B said...

Ha, ha!! Love your comments about the music and TOTALLY agree!! Gorgeous card. Love the glitter accents.
