The Craft Barn Q & L Challenge - UP



Good aftrnoon friends, followers and passers by, here is my second postcard for the new challenge over at The Craft Barn, using the word UP in a quote or lyric. You can find more information HERE about the challenge which will run for the full year.  

Keeping with the 60's soul music theme I used the lyrics "Everlasting Love", written by Buzz Casson and Mac Gaydon, first recorded in 1965 in the USA by Robert Knight, released in 1968 in the UK by the Love Affair and reaching No 1 in the charts.

I am presenting my postcards in a folder which will be bound using my Bind It All machine (which I think needs dusting off and using rather than languishing in my craft cupboard).  My pages will include details of the writers, artist and dates the records were released, I am also adding a section at the back for the full lyrics of each song.


I am getting organised this year and hope to have time to work on the folder, completing the cover before the end of the year, my alpha dictionary from last year is still waiting for the cover to be finished.   Maybe when my craft room clear out is complete (it is taking ages) I will have time to sit and craft, just a few boxes to clear out then I will be finished.

Off now to do the dreaded ironing, then back to check out what you lovely ladies have been up to this week and leave you a few comments.

I love your postcard. I also love your idea of how you are going to keep and bind your year's work. It should be a lovely collection with you in the end. I don't have a craft room, but do have lots of craft storage all over the place and I know all about "taking ages" when it comes to sorting it out. Hope you get it finished soon.
