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!

Card Sketch Reveal and Challenge Feb 15th

Hi Everyone, I'm not sure if you've heard, but Deanne has had a tragedy in her family so to allow her to focus her husband and sons I have offered to take over this months reveals. I'm sure you'll all join me in sending thoughts and prayers Deanne's way and understand while she takes some time to grieve...

PS I need to say thank you to the girls for getting all their cards in on time  (Especially since I know some of them have been snowed in or had kids home unexpectedly due to snow days etc!) It has made this so much easier for me, I have a new found respect for challenge coordinators and the work that Deanne puts into doing these reveals!
Anyway... onto the Card Sketch for Feb 15th:


The Songs to Use as inspiration for the Challenge are:
-NO SURPRISE Daughtry
-THANK YOU  Dido
