Just My Sketches Challenge

Good Morning!  I'm excited to share with you a unique and fun challenge blog today.  Deanne over at Just My Sketches has decided to add a little twist to her sketch challenges that I think you will find is wonderfully creative and different from the other challenges blogs.  She has decided to combine her sketches with MUSIC!!  I thought this was the coolest idea because I LOVE music and listen to it when I'm creating (when I'm not listening to political talk radio).  I'm convinced it makes me more creative.
I have always admired an artist expression through lyrics and have found many songs express perfectly how I feel in a much better way than I could ever express it.  So when I saw an opportunity to apply for this unique challenge blog, I jumped at it!  Guess what?  I made the team.  I'm so excited.  Deanne  will be posting new challenges on the 1st and 15th of the month.  She will post a sketch and a list of songs/lyrics to inspire you.  It could be a central theme or just a couple of words from the song that inspire you.  Check out all the details here :  JUST MY SKETCHES

So I used today's sketch and was inspired by "Put Your Records On".  What a fun song.  For me, it says don't take everything in life so seriously.  Let your hair down, relax, and enjoy yourself every now and then.
And here is my card that expresses that!


I hope you will be inspired and hop on over to the Just My Sketches Challenge Blog and join us!

On a personal note :
We finally had a warm spurt down here in Florida.  It was so nice to open up all the windows and get some fresh air flowing through.  Here is a photo of one of my daughters cats sitting in the window, enjoying the fresh air as well.  I refer to her as "girl cat", teehee.  And yes there is a "boy cat" as well.  I'll have to catch a photo of him as well to post some day.  I think this photo reminds us that our pets can sometimes remind us that we should slow down and take time to soak up some fresh air and sun as well! 




"Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty had of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you."  1Peter 5:6-7.
