CCEE1431 - Song Title

For Shirley's last challenge as hostess of the CCEE Stampers, she asked us to make a card that is related to a song title.  I admit that I had to go looking for a song that would let me use a new stencil that I just bought and wanted to use -- the Tim Holtz Splatters stencil.  And I found one.

You're the Cream in My Coffee

You're the cream in my coffee.
You're the salt in my stew.
You'll always be my necessity.
I'd be lost without you.

You're the starch in my collar.
You're the lace in my shoe.
You'll always be my necessity.
I'd be lost without you.

Find a song and make a card -- and check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see what songs inspired the rest of the team.

I am loving the detail of the 'rings of coffee'.....fab paper piecing too, Lois....all these songs are going to be spinning in my head as I head to bed

Love those coffee stains and the matching band on the cup to coordinate with that fabulous green gingham!

glad you were able to find a song to work with the stamps, love the splatters on the card

Well, your card certainly is perfect for your song...I comment and sing a song and then move on and comment and sing another song. This was a fun challenge!

I'm having a cuup right now! Perfect use of that new stencil, and I love the gingham band on the cup!! Great job........and an old song to go with it!

DH would love this - he's a big coffee fan, but oddly I've never heard him sing this one. He does sing the Java Jive, though - I once made him a birthday card based on it. Super masculine card, Lois.
