Ukulele Lady

I taught myself to play the ukulele a few years ago. Nothing fancy. I play songs that my family sang when I was growing up because those things need to be passed on, ya know?! A lot of my favorites are songs that my Grandma would sing…I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, My Blue Heaven, and You are my Sunshine. As I learned more chords, I added a few favorite oldies of my own. This one is fun to sing!

That song was the first thing that popped in my head when I made this card!

I caved and bought some Distress Oxide inks… I saw so many posts using them and I was intrigued! They are so smooth and creamy and make inking a background so easy! I love what happened to the background when I flicked water droplets on it.

That sure was a lot of fussy cuttin’ but I love how it turned out! I used Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers to color the images and added some Stickles for sparkle. I heat embossed the harvest moon with silver embossing powder because…you know the song…♫ By the Light of the Silvery Moon♫♪! Oh, I am so ready for a beach VACATION!

  1. You are so talented, and this is so cute. That’s you playing the uke! 🙂 Pretty. And also I’d love a set of those markers … just sayin’. I ordered myself some gel pens, for now that’ll have to do. LOL!

    1. Not me playing in the video, BUT I can play it on my uke! I broke down and bought the markers, I’ve wanted them for a long time and ended up getting them on sale. I’ll have to watch for your projects using the gel pens!

    1. Thanks Heidi! I can’t do fancy pickin’ or anything, but yes, I taught myself basic chords. My song list is easy, but it’s stuff everybody knows. It’s always fun around the fire pit!

  3. It’s a small world! A friend of mine, we call him Ukelele Dave, makes top-notch ukeleles. In fact, he’s hand-built some impressive ukeleles for some very exclusive clientele.

    He’s not cheap, but if you’re interested, I can get you his info and webpage.
