A You're Adorable...

This week the challenge over on LIM is one of my favourites - to combine any three past challenges.

I've chosen:

Week 20 Monogram
Week 25 Button or Ribbon
Week 54 Stripes

This card is for my mum's birthday. The story behind it is that she used to sing this song to my sister and I when we were little girls.  Unfortunately I have one of these minds where some things just stick in my head refusing to go away which then drives me to distraction. So don't say I'm not good to you - I like to share and share alike - the whole annoying song goes like this:

A you're adorable
B you’re so beautiful
C you’re a cutie full of charm
D you’re a darling
and E you’re exciting
and F you’re a feather in my arm
G you’re so good to me
H you’re so heavenly
I you‘re the one I idolise
J we’re like Jack and Jill
K you’re so kissable
L is the love light in your eyes
M N O, P I could go on all day
Q, R, S, T alphabetically speaking you’re OK
U made my life complete
V you’re so very sweet
W, X, Y, Z I love to wander through
the alphabet with you
to tell you what you mean to me.

And to help you with the tune:

Guaranteed this little ditty will be in your head for the rest of the day - sorry!  Another example of my overactive brain activity was when Robin Gibb died. I went to bed dog tired but didn't get to sleep until about 05.00 because I had Night Fever playing on a continuous loop in my head - no joke when you're already suffering from night sweats (or power surges as I like to call them) and insomnia.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
