inspiration challenge enjoy
This lamp card that I made was selected as one of the top 3 at the creative inspirations blog. I get to be a guest designer for one of their challenges.
Then my stamp club had a meeting at my house and we created 4 cards. We each bring an idea with all the elements required to put it together.
There were only 4 of us today but it was a great time of creating, talking and eating. Since I was the hostess, I was responsible for the lunch.
I made egg salad, chicken salad, a fruit salad, rye bread, chocolate cannoli's and jelly tea cookies. I also had ice tea and an assortment of sodas.
I found some new recipes for the egg & chicken salad and they both were delicious. I will take some photos of the cards we made and post them later.
After the girls left, I checked out the Saturday inspiration challenge on splitcoaststampers.
This week our hostess, Stef, took us to the Cox & Cox site. They are a UK based company with lots of cute stuff. I didn't have any trouble finding something to inspired me to make a card.
I saw this "enjoy sign" and it made me think about an old Stampin-Up set "enjoy every moment". How perfect was that?? When I stamped the sentiment, I added a pink button in the center of the "O".
Taylored Expressions sketch challenge. I have never played along with her challenge before. The layout was a great one for the large stamp I was going to use.
My patterned paper is also from Stampin-Up-"raspberry tart" collection. Again something old from my stash.
The bird cage and bird are a die from Tim Holtz. That completed this card. It's late now and I am tired so time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. Church in the morning, then maybe some card making in the afternoon.
Some other challenges for my card:
1. The Secret Crafter Saturday challenge blog has a feathered friends challenge #129 this week.
2. Card creations & more blog has an anything spring related theme.
3. If the shoe fits scrap it blog has a "spring is in the air" challenge.
