I find my inspirations in the strangest places sometimes.  Luckily I had my camera with me when this one came up.

The background was created using the SU MDS program and Extreme Elements.  The nice thing about the MDS is that when you don't have the stamp sets you can modify what is existing on the MDS and Extreme Elements is one of the preloaded stamp sets.

I punched out three small cogs and two large cogs from the SU Cog Punch and adhered them to the front of the cardstock and then stamped the sentiment on the bottom using SU Bring on the Cake.

My latest toy from SU is the Cool Spritzer Tool.  Using my black SU marker I spritzed randomly around the page.

So next time you are out and about don't forget your camera because your next card is only a "click" away!

When one door closes another one opens!

One of my colleagues is retiring and moving away.  She will be missed dearly by all of our department staff and this is the card I have created for her inspired by Lynn Pratt.

I used the MS branch punch to make the wreath branches I adhered them to a snowflake from the SU Decorative Strip Northern Frost.

Picture? or Picture Frame?

My first post is one that comes from being a Guest Designer on Stampin Fun and Friends - Christmas Dreams Session.

My contribution to the Christmas Dreams was the Thank You Card.  This thank you card has a little bit of a twist to it.  It can either just be a thank you or you can add a photo and make it a photo frame that can be used over and over. 

I encourage you to check out Stampin Fun and Friends.  You never know where your next inspiration will come from.  We have lots to share with you.  Try the challenges and don't forget the chats.  I have made some great new friends from Australia, New Zealand and of course the USA.  I'm certain you will enjoy their work as well.   Sign up now for our next session "Sweet Spring" starting in February.  See you there.



So it is finally here!  After many months of hearing "why don't you have a Blog?" 
I have a Blog.

I follow many different Blogs and enjoy creating and recreating cards and projects from them.  Now it is my turn to be your inspiration.  So thanks for taking a peak and I hope that you will be inspired to get up and think outside the box.
