{You Inspire Me}


  Oh boy what a week! This week has touched every spectrum of emotion and thankfully is currently on the happy side.  I received very happy (and surprising) mail from Paige at Create: Cards magazine and I have 8 cards being picked up! 7 of my cards will  be in the special Christmas issue, and 1 card will be in the Nov/Dec issue! I am thrilled. Thank you for letting me share!

    Before I get to the winner of my blog candy let me tell you a little about the card I am posting today. It was love at first site when I saw this set from Lawn Fawn "Flutter By". I love butterflies and flower stamps! So when I received my package yesterday I couldn't wait to use this set! Right away I knew I wanted to use the current Play Date Cafe  challenge:

Oh so beautiful! To create my card I used Blackberry, and Currant Pigment ink by A Muse Studio, and a pretty little pigment ink pad by Studio G. To create my flowers I stamped them in Staz On ink, and used a SU Blender pen and the ink from my pigment ink pads to add color. I LOVE the deep, rich color you achieve when coloring with pigment ink pads! I hand stitched my burlap layer using blackberry DMC floss, and stamped the sentiment using Onyx Black Versafine. I LOVE the way my card turned out, such bold, vibrant color. The PDC picks such beautiful colors and it is always a pleasure using them!

   Now for the winner of my set of six Fresh Ink Pigments! First let me say thank you to everyone that left a comment, I appreciate them all!
