Why not? Win your favorite Elvis….

why-not-elvis-042408-lcraig.jpg

Another new Elvis today from Cornish Heritage Farms. They are fun, especially if you are an Elvis lover, like me! When I was looking at this Elvis Sketch, I was thinking about his earlobe…and thinking…would Elvis have pierced his ear if he would have been around a little later in the 80s or 90s? Now, personally, I don’t care for pierced ears on men, but something tells me ‘he would have done it.’ So, I did it! LOL! I pierced Elvis’ ear! I also used the Paisley Bandana Backgrounder to mask off and put some flowered wallpaper behind his head. Why? Because ‘Why not is a slogan for an interesting life.’ – new sentiment from Mona Lisa – it’s coming next week!

OK – I’m running on about 3 hours sleep, and to make up for the craziness…I’ve got some blog candy, for the first time ever in the history of my blog. :) 

Up for grabs? TWO winners to each choose their favorite Elvis image in a deeply etched, glorious red rubber on a top quality maple wood block mount from the wonderful folks at Cornish Heritage Farms.   All you have to do is leave me a comment between now and Monday morning, 8:00 CST with your name and your favorite Elvis image from CHF. My favorite is the ‘Jumpsuit Silhouette’, but you can see them all and pick your favorite HERE.

See you tomorrow with a sketch from Beate.

  1. So fun! My favorite Elvis stamp is the ‘Elivs Portrait’ one.

  2. Hello there Lori! Remember my comment on Salsa yesterday?? Well, Guess where we went for lunch……On The Border!!! It was Tod’s bday yesterday and he wanted “chips and salsa”!!! I surely didn’t complain!! Anyway, we are headed out to Branson in the morning for the Worldview Weekend Conference! Should be really good! I have some of the Elvis stamps on my wishlist over at CHF! Wouldn’t that be fun to win some!!! I think my favorites are (because I can’t just pick 1): Finger Clickin’ Elvis and the Jumpsuit Silhouette. Of course it wouldn’t be complete without the saying…Thank You, Thank you very Much! And that’s exactly what I would be saying to you if I win!!! :) Have a wonderful weekend Lori!

  3. I like the siluette pics of elvis as well as the TK one of graceland(rectangle)they are just so pretty…and you are so right that the pic of Elvis would definately have had a stud…elegently not the massive ones that you see now on some music “stars” and I say star loosely as they just don’t have the same class as Elvis.

  4. Oh look at you Miss THANG!!! I never knew the king had his ear pierced!!

  5. I love the Elvis profile, that’s the Elvis I think was the most handsome and I think probably at the top of his game during that time.

  6. I love the Elvis guitar … so fun.

  7. I love what you have done with this stamp, the earring looks great on Elvis! & I’d have to agree with you I’m sure he would have too! I like the Elvis Sketch & Playin’ Elvis.

  8. Hi Lori,

    Cute card! I like the Jumpsuit Elvis! I was a huge Elvis fan when I was a kid and my parents took me to one of his concerts. It was amazing!

    Shawn K,

  9. This card is gorgeous! My mom’s best friend (of over 40 years!) is obsessed with Elvis. She has started a fan club and put together a small museum, it’s impressive. She’s even pondering a tattoo! These stamps would be so great as a gift for her, especially as her daughter-in-law is now making cards too!

    I like the Elvis Portrait and Elvis Profile. They’re both fab!

    What a great idea for blog candy!

  10. How to pick just one? Um, the finger clickin’ Elvis, or the profile? I also love the guitar!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  11. Love your card !I am a huge Elvis fan ! After looking at all the Elvis stamps I would have to say that my favorite is the Elvis sketch stamp that you used on your card .

  12. I LOVE ELVIS!!! and have since I was a little girl. I have seen all his movies and my dad used to let me stay up late when all the others were in bed. My fave is the Jumpsuit and the Sketch………but I LOVE them all.
    Thanks for the chance to win!!! Pick me, pick me.

    Hi Lori! I LOVE the Elvis stamps, and my favorite is the Elvis Profile. They’re all fabulous, but if I had to choose just one, that would be the one.

  14. Love what you did with this stamp…would never think to pierce the King’s ear, but it does look great. My favorite is the portrait and the new Elvis sketch. Love the young Elvis, especially when he sang a ballad!

  15. This was a very hard decision, but I would have to say that “Finger Clickin’ Elvis” is my fave! I still prefer the earlier looks of Elvis over his comeback looks. Thanks for the chance to win it.

  17. I love Finger Clickin Elvis and the Elvis Profile stamps. Thanks for doing the giveaway!! I would LOVE to win and make my Mom a card.. she LOVES Elvis!

  18. My favorite is The Elvis Portrait, but the Jumpsuit Silhoutte is right up there.Thanks for the chance to win!

  19. I have loved Elvis FOREVER! When I was a senior in high school (’72/’73) Elvis came to Spokane, Washington. All my friends got to go see him … BUT ME. My mother wouldn’t let me go. I was SO MAD at her!

    My favorite Elvis: Jumpsuit Silhouette would be #1 and the sketch you used for your card would be #2!

  20. Without a doubt I love the Silhouette of Elvis. All of the stamps look so fun to play with though! You do a great job with them!

  21. I love the ‘Thank you very much’ sentiment. Every time I read it, I can hear him saying it. My husband does an impression, too, which cracks me up. :)

  22. I love your blog! I have to check it every day or two! I love your stamp projects but I love your Love for the Lord too! YOu are so inspirational…I want to blog & I would want mine to be like yours if I ever do it!

  23. Cute card! I’d hate to think that Elvis would get an earing, but then he is Elvis and you just never know! LOL! I love all the Elvis stamps they have, but I think I lean toward Elvis Portrait. thanks for the opportunity to win!

  24. What cool stamps!!! I LOVE the Elvis Portrait, you get the full view of those lucious lips!

  25. I have to agree with you on the jumpsuit silhouette, but I also like the profile one. Shoot, they’re all just wonderful!

  26. My favorite is the ‘Thank you very much’ Elvis stamp.
    Thanks for sharing your ideas. I love your BLOG.

  27. Lori what a cute card, love the earring. My favorite has to be the Jumpsuit Silhouette and Graceland.
    I enjoy your blog very much. TFS

  28. This turned out fabulous, Lori — LOVE the earring bling! And yes, I think Elvis would have! 😉 This sentiment is perfect!!

  29. My SIL is the biggest Elvis Fan. He has a lot of Elvis stuff, even bought my daughter and Elvis handbag. I think he would love the Elvis Portrait. So glad they came out with this line of stamps. Making cards for my SIL just got easier. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  30. i like the jumpsuit elvis best as well. i am not a crazy elvis fan, but that one seems like one that everyone can use for something in their life -you know? thanks for sharing your wonderful creations!

  31. I like the Mic Swingin Elvis and the Silhouette as well. You continue to inspire me, girlfriend!

  32. Love the finger clickin Elvis. Just found your Blog…love it.

  33. Lordy he’s cute in that stamp above, Elvis sketch. That’s the one I’d have to say is my favorite. I was leaning towards the Jumpsuit Silhouette but you just sold me on this one. It’s probably the card you made that put me over the edge. It’s terrific. Thanks so much for offering such cool blog candy.

  34. What a cool card with the bling!! My favorite Elvis is Elvis Profile – hard to choose. I love how he looked when he was younger! So cute!

  35. Hi Lori! I LOVE all the Elvis stamps, really, but if I have to pick one, I would say the Elvis Portrait. We always tease my Dad, because he looks alot like Elvis, and that stamp reminds me of them both! Thanks for the chance to bring one home! :-)

  36. oh boy, this one is so cool but I do like the portrait a little better. But tomorrow who knows, this one is gently but the portrait is very traditional “king”. thanks for this chance. Heidi

  37. I grew up in love with this guy..but I guess if I had to choose one, I guess it would be the “Finger Clicking” stamp. Hopefully he’ll be coming home to me!

  38. I would have to say Portrait Elvis would be my fav. It is the image that first comes to mind when I think of Elvis. My favorite Elvis movie was Blue Hawaii.

  39. I love Elvis’ guitar image! It’s so cool and I would feel really cool inking up that baby :)

    I also love the young Elvis portrait. That is the Elvis I remember! :)

    Nice candy, Lori!

  41. This is a cool image, and I love your card!! I agree…I think he would have pierced his ear! 😉
