Favorite summer song: A Drunken Stampers Challenge

I know you have a favorite summer song! Everyone does! Even if the song doesn't have a thing to do with summer.

Maybe you only love a particular song, especially during the summer, because it's so fun to have car windows rolled down while you belt out an out-of-tune version of Lady Gaga's Poker Face.

Perhaps you're more of a Chopin kind of person. Neil Diamond's Beautiful Noise might speak to your soul or ATB with his unbelievably delicious techno beats gets your toes moving.

Whether you're a rap fan or a blues follower, you've the perfect inspiration for this week's Drunken Stampers Challenge: Your favorite summer song.

I'm undecided about music in general: My Zune houses everything from classical to classic rock, a bit of jazz and a sprinkling of new age, more than a couple of World Music albums and soundtracks and even Kraftwerk.

Still, since we're the Drunken Stampers we should stick to a theme. So, after having one or two or possibly more cocktails I have to give in to the desire to dance around the living room listening to abnoxiously-loud music with our French doors thrown open to the cool night air.

Thus, you see here my own little Dancing Queen (... ABBA ... and I can't believe you didn't know that).

All of the die cuts are from Cricut cartridges and the mirrors are from an old Dollar Tree Christmas decoration I tore apart. The background paper is from a Die Cuts With a View stack.

Let's hear your creative juices sing, folks! We know you've got a favorite! Is it Willie Nelson or the Rain Forest pygmies?


  1. Love it!!! So hard to pick just one song isn't it?! I love how you tore apart the christmas decoration, so creative!

  2. You can never, EVER go wrong with ABBA! I love your card-- you've taken this awesome song and translated it PERFECTLY! Love the disco background and the completely joyful pose this little dancing queen has taken.

    (When I was in junior high, my best friend and I made up an interpretive dance to this song. Yes, I still remember it. No, I won't perform it. ;-)
