Inspiration, C4C, & Playdate Challenges

I was totally inspired by the green in these earrings from Destiny's Creations, the site picked by Stef for our peruse..


I used the newly released Innovative Stamp Creations, Foliage.  I am not sure how many times I have said it, but I adore these stamps!  They color and stamp just beautifully!


 This one is for Crazy for Challenges - Silke had this great sketch.  Now that I uploaded these 2 cards I realized the sketch for both is very similar (no, I didn't plan THAT - lol) Anyway, the colors are for Play Date Cafe #53 - black, white and touch of burgundy.   Again, I used ISC newly released  images- Fall in New England.

Just an FYI - do you notice the card base?  It looks textured right?  Well guess what?  That is FREE digi paper from Stamp TV! (called Summer Fabrics- 3 different "textures")  I found it on my computer and thought I would try it.  I have to tell you, you will be seeing this again!  I REALLY love this stuff.  I have had it for MONTHS and have never used it! (sound familiar?) So funny the way this hobby is such a collector craze-- how much stuff do you have that you have never used??  I know you have something~~ lol.  Use it~ you can't take it with you. On that note, I am off.
Thanks for stopping in -

Wow! The red butterflies are gorgeous on top of the green background! Love the pink and black card! I know all about "collecting". I am on a kick right now to use everything in my "new" basket, before I get more!
