The Blues

I wanted to make a card for the central theme of the 'Summertime' Fan Club Challenge on Splitcoaststampers and thought this stamp would fit perfectly. It is by Stamps Happen, Inc and is The Magic of Music.

To explain the blue heart, we are in the days of the W.C. Handy Festival in our city. This is when we celebrate W.C. Handy as he was born in our city in 1893. He is known as the Father of the Blues. Our city is filled with music of all kinds day and night in this 10 day festival. I will be singing in a concert on Friday night and really look forward to it.

My card is entered into the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week-Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by.

Neat looking heart with the music going through it! A very nice CAS card!

Wish I was a little closer so I could come hear you sing Friday night. I didn't realize it was a ten day festival...fun fun!

That is really a cool stamp, and I love the blue color to indicate the Father of the Blues! I adore the way the sentiment surrounds the image! Fabulous card!

I love the movement in this stamp. In the summertime we had band concerts every week when I was a kid. We used to sit on the hood of the car and eat popcorn and had the best time. Your festival sounds wonderful. Wish I could hear you sing.
