"Dig if you will a picture..."

Can you finish those lyrics? If not...he can! (Sadly, I can too. lol!)Seriously, I will TRY to stop doing these cards for Club Anya's Rockin' Rebel challenge. But I just couldn't resist, especially since I heard "When Doves Cry" on my XM 80s channel! (Trust me, you don't even want to know of the others that I am brainstorming on. HAHA!)

But back to your royal purple highness. Isn't he fun? This is Chef Ian, toned down to Prince's tiny frame. Chef Ian's jacket and black boots were just perfect for my rockstar. I colored everything in with a purple prismamarker, then added the white ruffle detail out of some scrap ribbon. He was stamped on caramel cardstock like Janet, I added Prince's beauty mark and his goatee. All Ian's hair needed was a bit more poof as it already had some curl to it. ;)

The motorcycle pays tribute to the Purple Rain poster complete with dark clouds. I found this dove from an old Jolee's Easter sticker sheet, from its mouth dangles a banner carrying the Symbol.

I hope today's post made you smile! And if you are racking your 80s memory trying to remember the next line then here you go...
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
(the rest of the lyrics are quite risque, I can't believe I walked around the house singing it when I was younger!)

In other exciting news, twoscoopsricedesigns.com is now open for business! Head on over there and see what cute stuff Renae has created. With all these fabulous companies coming out with their irresistible stamps, I may have to start doing dishes somewhere. ;)
Have a wonderful day everyone!
*Love and Aloha*

'Dig if you will a picture
of you and I engaged in a kiss
the sweat of your body covers me
can you my darlin' can you picture?

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They can feel the heat
The heat between me and you

How can u just leave me standing?
Alone in a world thats so cold?
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father 2 bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
Shes never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry.'
