Sing it baby!!!

Temaet for denne ukas Simon Says utfordring er å tenke på en sang og lage et kort etter det... Vel, jeg hadde denne på hjernen her om dagen; 'Eg heiter Håvard Hedde og er så ven ein kar - no vil eg bort og gifta meg - og ryddja meg ein gard....' Men jeg tror ikke den fins på engelsk? :)
This time Simon Says challenge 'Sing it Baby!' - is to find a song and make a card with that in mind! Well.. The song I had stuck on my mind is a sweet old norwegian folksong about a boy who's name is Håvard Hedde, and he wishes to build a farm below a mountainside, and to marry a girl, have kids... and so on. The girl ends up marrying another in the end - very sad.. ;) I don't think there is an english or american version though? Maybe 'Old MacDonalds' can be a cheerier substitute?! *lol*

Stamps/Image: Papilio Stamps - Ole's lille lam (Ole's little lamb).
Paper:
Notabene & Bazzill cardstocks. Webster's Pages - Lullaby Lane 'Puppydogs & Pigtails'.

Embellishments:
Spellbinder Borderabilities Petite - Lattice. Spellbinder Nestabilities - Deckled Edge Classic Ovals Large. Using a ruler I cut & made 'fake' tiles. Scotch 3M gluestick with a sponge in one end, is great for paper!
