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.~~~

Hi everyone!!! We are smack in the middle of March!!! Wow!!! Is spring on the way in your area?? Not here yet! It's been freezing but thankfully on the days it's been warm, the snow's been melting like crazy!!!

Here are the sketches and reveals from TEAM 2!

Thanks so much ladies!!! I am loving it!!! Isn't it great how some of them actually incorporated the man and woman into their layouts and cards!!! NEAT!!!

WOW girls, these are super! Spent some time just LOOKING.

Kimmie, A sincere Thank You for that lovely compliment. It warmed my heart.

I also wanted to mention that I had a chance to look at all the very special cards this weekend. The use of so many different embellies and greetings makes these cards a totally GORGEOUS collection!From wedding to everyday greetings to Sympathy-type and holiday cards...WOW is all I can say. Great job ladies! ...

Great job ladies!!!

Here is my take on the LO sketch:

Clicky Here For Mine – Thanks for looking!!!!

I'm thinking of lifting Kim's limited coloring of the Bella stamp for a challenge that I have to complete that only lets us use red/white/blue for the colors - I love this idea!!!

I'll link back if I use it!!!

KarenB said...

Totally inspired by the card Kim made with the Bella and limited coloring that I had to do one myself!!!

Clicky Here For Mine – Thanks for looking!!!!
