So much inspiration ....

There are so many wonderfully talented artists out there making absolutely gorgeous cards. Joanne is one of the many that I am inspired by almost daily. Her blog Sleepy in Seattle is one that I go to frequently when I'm looking for a little inspiration. She never fails to provide it either. Take a look at this card which is a total stunner! It inspired me to make these:



As you can see, I totally CASEd her card. It made me fall completely in love with this level 1 hostess set and now it's on my desk and staying there! I didn't do the sponged clouds on mine as I really liked the contrast provided by the bright white background. I also really love that circle sentiment from Simple Friendship and I think it makes a nice addition to this card. The small flowers were colored with markers, painted with Angel Wing Shimmerz (love that stuff) and then cut out and popped up. The images were all stamped with black craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I wanted to keep the insides relatively plain and so I stamped the leaf image in Mellow Moss and left it blank for folks to write their own messages.



Well today is surgery day and I am prepping this post in advance as we have to be at the hospital at 6:30 and I know I am going to be too nervous to do anything this morning. Hopefully, I'll be back later in the day to let you know how it all went.

Thanks for visiting!
