Not to put too fine a point on it…

say I’m the only bee in your bonnet…   Make a little birdhouse in your soul !

…I made this as an anniversary card for a friend of ours to use. I just loved the happiness of it, but couldn’t work out why it called to me so – until good ol’ random Spotify threw up the They Might Be Giants song Birdhouse In Your Soul.

And it clicked. When DH and I met, waaaaay back at college ( 20 years ago… TWENTY !!!!) he played the album in the car once and it was another “ohhhh…!” moment of soul recognition ( I doubt if he’d put it like that , or even remember !! ) Anyhow, I still think it’s a cool song, and this birdie stamp will now ALWAYS make me think of it !  So it goes with this card into the Passion for Papertrey’s Song themed challenge !

    Good to see you back again. And , yes, it is 20 years since you brought a tall shy lad into all our lives. Probably the best move you ever made given how life enriching it has been. Keep going,dear DD. Oh, yes, the card is delightful,too!
