Inspiration is all around us!

Hello! I apologize for my absence! Sometimes life gets really big and very busy! Lately, it has been both for me. I have had a lot going on and it feels like we run all the the time. We are still without a second vehicle since the accident and that in itself has been something of a challenge! Soccer is going full force, my home school group has started meeting again and my daughter just got some really exciting news about her gymnastics (which I will share tomorrow!). As usual, I have really missed the time I spend her on my blog with you! I hope to be around much more often now though!

I have a project to share with you today from my last demo meeting! Our challenge was to find something that we could use as inspiration for a card. I knew immediately that this Kleenex box was going to be my inspiration! I remembered buying it thinking that if you had to endure the sniffles that this pretty box might just make it easier! LOL :) Here is my card and the item that inspired it:





I used the main color of the box as my card base and pulled all the sprinklings of color for the color on my card! I stamped the tall stemm-y (fancy new technological term!) looking flowers in craft white and stamped, cut out and added the other flowers on pop dots! I made the frame using SU!'s new double border punch and centering it on each side of a 3 inch square. The ribbon on the bottom 'ties' the whole thing together! This was a fun challenge! :)

Paper: Pear Pizazz, Very Vanilla and Tangerine Tango
Stamps: Apple Blossom Level 2 Hostess set
Ink: Craft White, Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose
Punches: Flower form Punch Trio, Double border
Extras: Pumpkin Pie Ribbon and Pearl Embellishments

I hope that you have a wonderful Thursday! I finally have a day at home and am hoping to get caught up on a few things around here...or I could blow it all off and spend the afternoon stamping! :) Big grin! What is a girl to do?! I will be back soonest with more to share!
