It has been way too long since I've played along with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge so it was time to rectify the issue. Think the round circle sucked me in wink, wink. Always love it when there is a big circle to play around with on a sketch as there are so many possibilities. Since I loved this week's Colour Q I paired the two challenges for this card.
Initially, I was aiming to use some leaves as these colours just scream fall, but then I decided to continue on with my inadvertent theme this week - verses that have been turned into songs.
Psalm 46:10 is one of my favorite verses. Think I've said the same thing about the verses I have used on my last two cards...what can I say...I have quite a few favorite verses :) Love that Verve has them as Plain Janes!
This verse speaks to me often, especially when catch myself running on life's hamster wheel. As a kid I used to love watching what happened when our hamsters could no longer run on their wheel due to exhaustion. They couldn't get off because the wheel was spinning too quickly so they had to stop running, hang on for dear life, and let the momentum they had generated take them for a few loops around the wheel. Once the wheel stopped, they were able to walk away. Oh how true this is of real life! Note to self: Get off the wheel before you are exhausted so you don't get thrown for a loop ;)
There you have it, a little insight into my world. Just don't think of me as a hamster very time you see my name and I'll be good LOL!
Have a great day everyone :)
