One Little Word Blog Hop

It's that time again for the One Little Word Blog Hop.  Welcome back!

This months prompt is always fun - the music of your life.  I usually only listen to music when I'm driving or running.  I like it quiet when I work or I'll have classical music - nothing with words.  I find it distracting when I'm trying to think.  Even though I don't listen to it much, I do love music.  I really should have it on more because it does life my spirits.

Last year when I did this prompt the lyrics came easy to me.  This year I really had to think about the songs I listen to lately.  After listen and reading the lyrics to many of the songs I listen to lately, I realized that many of them were negative. But I kept listen to my play list and was really happy with the lyrics that spoke to me.

I keep the design of my cards very simple. Black background. White text. Two fonts. Some swirls. A little glitter spray.  Here's the cards before I cut them out.

I case this is hard to read here are the songs that I picked.

John Lennon - Image: You may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one

Katy Perry - Wide Awake: I wish I knew then what I know now. Wouldn't dive in. Wouldn't bow down.

Muse - Survival: Race, life's a race and I am gonna win. Yes, I am gonna win.

Robbie Schaefer - Fits Right In: She said...I like to be myself.

Coldplay - Yellow: Look at the stars. Look how they shine for you.

Blue October - Jump Rope: You gotta hold your head up high and watch all the negative go by.

Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe: I threw a wish in the well.

Katy Perry - Part of Me: Now look at me I'm sparkling.

Kelly Clarkson - Stronger: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
