Finding inspiration....

Being a dedicated blurfer (blog surfer), I am blessed to read and view the talents of many wonderful people out there. A while back, Andrea (EnchantINK) followed a "Sweetie's Sketch" as seen here. One of her inspired creations was this card using the Priceless stamp set (SU).

Andrea's FAB Card


Now at this time, I was procrastinating (yeah...so unlike me I know) and suffering a nasty case of mojo-interruptus!! I had a card idea bouncing around my head for a week or 2...but the M-I virus can take up residence for an indeterminate amount of time. Basically....Andrea's post was the cure I needed. Without a word of a lie, this card was nearly the same as the one I had in my head. So.......creativity renewed....I set to work.....and this was my card!!



So, thanks to Andrea and her creativity, I unblocked a nasty narrowing and was very happy with the result. There is a wonderful myriad of talent out there, so tog up, grab a cuppa and have a blurf today.

Stuff used:
Card: Dk purple Bazzil, Whisper White (SU)
Ink: (SU) Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Lovely Lilac
Stamps: (SU) Priceless
Punches: (SU) Lg and Small Oval Punch, 1 1/4 and  1 3/8 Square Punch, CM 1 1/4 Circle Punch

Two fabulous cards,love the LO!!! You certainly know how to use Stampin'Up! stamps to their full advantage!! BTW you don't have to give the award to 23 bloggers...lol..
I was told by 1 person to give it to 3 people and the other said give it to 10 people,so you can choose 3 or 10 not sure which is right...lol...
