Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
This week's Inspired By Challenge has a twist.
Michele is hosting and she's challenged each of us to ask a friend to join us.
I invited my dear friend Loll (Stamping with Loll) to join the challenge with me.
Here's my card Inspired By the Christmas photo. After all, Christmas is
not that far off!
Here's the inspiration photo.
I was inspired by the wreath, the colors, the metal and the gingham. I even got in
some of the paneling.
I was inspired by those shiny apples in the other picture too and decided to use the other
half of my wreath for a Twofer. It's not for Fall though. I need to get my Christmas card
stash filled up like that bucket of apples!
Here's that inspiration photo.
The wreath die is from my overfull NBUS box. I die cut it three times from
watercolor paper and used Zigs and water to color it up.
When it was all dry, I layered it up with some strategically placed drops of glue and
added it to an embossed background.
The jingle bell is part of the die and I used a snippet of foil cardstock to cut it
and the joy from. The berries are from Nuvo Crystal drops.
I hope you'll head over to Loll's blog and see the fantastic card she did.
It was so much fun crafting together even with miles between us.
Maybe we should do that more often?
My friends at Inspired By and their friends have some lovely inspiration to share with you.
Do check them out.
And I see there's a new Christmas Challenge in town!
Congratulations, Darlene and Diane on another fabulous challenge!
