celebrate your day card

Hello.  Back again with another week of inspiration over on the Inspired By card challenge blog.
This week we have an incredibly fun patchwork photo and I decided to use this cute digital image HERE and it's FREE to download, happy day right?

Celebrate Your Day card

For my card, I printed the digital stamp onto white card stock, used my pencils and colored the hippo and balloon.  Next, I printed the image one more time onto printer paper (so I could see the placement for the post it note), then I placed a post it note over the image and ran it back through the printer.  I cut out the image to create a mask and used Distress Inks, to distress the background, always fun.

And here's the cuuuute inspiration photo this week

I was inspired by:

*the colors, 
*the patchwork 
*and the flooring.

Make sure to pop on over to the blog to see what the team created, so inspiring!
We can't wait to see your creations!

sending warm wishes

Good morning!  We are back with another challenge over at Inspired By card challenges.  It is such a fun one and so many ways to be inspired by the great photo.

It seemed like a perfect fit for the theme this week and I couldn't wait to use my pencils on it.

I'm Stuck on You

Happy Valentine's Day! Hopefully your day is one filled with love or thoughts of all your loved ones.  Thank you for sharing a bit of your week with me!
We are back with another challenge this week at Inspired By card challenges.

This week we are focus on all things CACTI and it's super fun.  I took this challenge to create a fun Valentine for a friend of mine, someone I adore, someone I wanted to have a Valentine but not with hearts all over it.

Hello Friend Card

And here is the cute inspiration pic this week

I was inspired by:

*the cactus (succulents)
*the soft colors
*the word love (made me think of Valentine for a friend)

 I die cut two cacti using MME Bliss.  I love this line so much and was so happy creating with it.  I will definitely be making many more cards using it!

I wanted to make an envelope to match her card, so I used my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.  I love it and use it all the time.

Make sure to hop over to see what all the design team created this week, so inspiring!
