Be Inspired...

Two weeks ago Jules challenged us to "be inspired". Normally, the inspiration comes from a magazine photo of a bedding set or something from a Crate & Barrel catalog and you are then to create a card "inspired" by that photo. Well, I decided to twist my inspiration a bit. I was inspired to finish something I had started. A while back, Joanne posted these adorable stationary cards with a holder. I was inspired to make my own and I had created the holder a while ago but not the stationary...I just said "oh I'll get to it sometime" (anyone else do that and end up with a huge pile of need-to-get-back-to stuff??)

So I sat my tail down and stamped away. I am in love with the SU designer papers, especially the groovy guava. I used the Mixed Messages set from PTI (love it) for the sentiments, I did a variety so I had a few different occasions covered. Luckily it got my engine going and I was inspired to finish a ton of projects I had set aside, so be sure to check back as I will be posting them regularly (now that they are finally done!) ;)
If you haven't heard already, the latest release from Paper Pretties is tomorrow!!! 3 new sets will be released and the party starts at 8pm EST in the Prettie Forum. There will be card challenges posted during the party so clear off your stamp table and get ready for a virtual stamp night with the Prettie Girls!!!
Stamps - Baroque Motifs (SU), Mixed Messages (PTI), Borders & Corners Circle (PTI)
Cardstock -Groovy Guava, Blush Blossom, Shimmery White
Ink - Groovy Guava, Blush Blossom
