I'm changing up this blog a bit! I'll be posting sketches but there will be a twist! You have to BLEND the sketch with a song! I love listening to Sirius radio and The Blend station plays a wonderful "blend" of great songs! So I'll be posting a layout and card sketch ON THE 1ST OF EACH MONTH, and along with it 5 songs to choose from to inspire you. You can let the title inspire you or choose a stanza from the song, or even let the theme of the song inspire you!

Looking for Sponsors!

~~~If YOU would like to sponsor a monthly prize, please EMAIL ME at deanneburton@gmail.com . Thanks! It would be greatly appreciated and I WILL advertise for you all month that you sponsor. I will also keep a permanent link on the sidebar of this blog.~~~
