Crafty Time Challenge - Movie, Book or Song

Good morning. It's time for another challenge at Crafty Time Challenges .  This month our sponsor is Rick St Dennis  and the theme is "Movie, Book or Song".  This was a great challenge!  I am using the image "Joanie, The Flower Child" which you can find here.

As soon as I saw this image I climbed aboard the Tardis and was transported back to 1967, "The Summer of Love", and I was 17 again.  Now these are colours which you don't usually see me use, I am more a pastels girl - or purple!  But if you knew me back in 1967 you would have seen me wearing all these colours - mostly at the same time!!!  People needed to wear sunglasses when my very dear friend Hilary and I were out together.  And my hair was the same length but minus the fringe.  Ah, those were the days my friend!  (Cue another song by Mary Hopkin but a couple of years later!)

My Card

7" x 7" card by Anne-Marie Designs
other card stock from my stash
Labels 10 - Spellbinders 
Dainty Dots e/f - Spellbinders
Britannia dies - Flourish Leaf Strip
Punched daisies - Woodware punches.
Pearls from stash
Card Candi - Craftwork Cards

Two songs sprang to my mind instantly; "Lets Go To San Francisco" by the English group The Flowerpot Men and "San Francisco" by the American singer Scott McKenzie. Oh to be young again but to have a little more fashion sense - but I really loved the bell bottom hipster trousers we used to wear!

Anyway I reluctantly traveled forward in time and I'm  back in 2015 again.  We would love you to join in our challenge and we look forward to seeing what inspired your project. The prize is two digis from Rick's shop.

Hope you are all well.  Take care.

Fabulous card. I was a child of the 70's and caught the tail end of bell bottom pants. Great colors and a super cute image!

Fancy you being a Flower Power girl Christine, must have been a fabulous time to be Seventeen. I love the bright colours and your beautiful image and flowers.

Hi Christine,
oh those were the days alright, for wearing such wonderful colours.
Sometimes it seem like yesterday cue for another song, and sometimes it seems like a lifetime away.
Wonderful card, and wonderful image too, and such very beautiful colours.
Gorgeous flowers.
Love and biggest hugs from my house to yours.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Christine
Wow, super card and definitely not your usual colour palette but I love bright colours.
I know the San Francisco song (if its the one about wearing flowers in your hair) but you lost me with the others lol!
Have a great day.

Oh this was fun to see all the brights & happy colors. I was just a bit older in 67 but I well remember those days. Skinny enough then that bell bottoms and hipsters looked good on one. It was lovely to take a walk back in time with your brilliantly designed and colored card. I bet you had lots of fun assembling it, and going down memory lane. Very chic & lighthearted! TFS & Hugs (yes, I did know some of the songs, not all! I know Marianne Hopkins song though!)

Lia said...

Wow Christine, this really is FLOWER POWER!!
I remember the time and the songs and love them still.
Sorry, I did not write a comment earlier. Seems that blogger does not give a sign when you publish your cards, as it normally does....
It's HOT over here, to hot for cardmaking....
Warm greetings, Lia xx
