Inspired by Dinah Washington's Embraceable You.

Two cards inspired by Dinah Washington's Embraceable You. One of my father's very favourite jazz singers.  My brothers and I grew up listening to my father's jazz and classical music.  We never really thought much of it until we left home and realized that it became very much a part of us.  The image used on je t'aime is from Cemerony. The second image is from Graphic Fairy.

I'm so happy that the weekend is here ... I hope it's sunny and warm ... however if it rains all weekend .... that means I'll have to stay in and make cards  ...  ; )  !

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. I grew up with classical music, and it stuck, too! I did the same with our boys.......
    LOVE these cards, Susanne! What a nice memorial to your Dad!

  2. Beautiful cards, Susanne! Lovely, soft colors and wonderful texture! I know what you mean. Before I started making cards, I never wanted it to rain. Now, I don't mind. :) Hugs to you!

  3. This is lovely, I love the powder rose tint you gave the first one.
    Dinah Washington is great. I often listen to the old jazz, swing and soul minstrels too.

  4. Adorei...muito romantico e suave!

  5. Eyecandy-alert! I love the 2nd one - so very beautiful!

  6. Beautifully exotic and romantic!

  7. So beautiful!! My poor english has few words, not enough to comment your card in a proper way...
