I’ve always been a bit of a free spirit. I’m not overly fond of rules. I’m able to set my own goals and see them to completion most of the time. I taught myself how to play guitar back in the 70’s, using an old Mel Bay “How to Play Guitar” book. I taught myself how to cook, because it made me nervous to have my mother hovering over me telling me what to do next. I taught myself how to type when I was in 7th grade. So, entering online challenges has never really appealed to me. I like to create what I like to create when I like to create it, the way I like to create it. Having said that, it occurred to me sometime late in 2012 that I might be missing out on some real growth opportunities by ignoring online challenges in the paper crafting world. I decided a good goal for 2013 would be to enter at least one challenge a month.
I’ve been subscribing to the Mojo Monday blog for a few years now. I liked receiving the sketches, even though I never made a card based on one of the designs. (Free Spirit, remember?) It seemed a natural venue for carrying out my decision to play with others online.
The Mojo Monday sketch for this week looks like this:
And this is my version of this sketch:
And you know what? I had fun making it. I hope you enjoy it, too.
Thanks for visiting my blog today. I’d love to hear from you!
