SSIC142, JUGS139 ~ Sing ~

Good morning!  I am now on day seven of Cricut withdrawal...  Hubs swears I am not NEARLY as charming as before the Cricut died!  :-)  But this has challenged me to do more stamping and in some cases get EXTREMELY creative about the products I use.  But that's good, right?  Sometimes you gotta knock the dust off of those under appreciated crafting items!

Speaking of under appreciated...  sometime I get stuck in a creative rut.  I really like those "shabby chic" cards.  And sometimes I fail to try other kinds of cards because I am so COMFORTABLE doing what I know how to do!  So today I am attempting to broaden my horizens with another clean and simple card.  I created this one for a sketch challenge at Just Us Girls and the weekly challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.  The ladies at SSIC asked participants to create a card that depicts any element of heaven—angels, music, clouds, sun, stars, blue, glitter, bling, etc.  When I think of heaven, I think of music!  I found some My Mind's Eye papers (Be Happy) and went to work.  Kinda ironic that the paper pad is named Be Happy!  Me thinks that's a message...    ;-)

So here's the sketch...

And here's my interpretation...

Super easy! As always thanks so much for taking a few moments to stop by!

Such a sweet card, Lori. I really like that sketch design too, but you made it come alive with the music and soft background. Love the verse. Thanks for joining our challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ this week. We love having you there! Diane Noble (SSIC-DT)
