For Your Inspiration #29

Here is the photo that Stef found for this week;

I was stumped by this photo.  I mean stumped.  I made a card and it was so bad I threw it in the trash can! (No, you can't see it) -- I accidentally clicked on my "to be used" file and found this;

I was so happy! THIS works for the inspiration photo. Though, I did do it backwards - matching a card to the photo - oh well. I want to have fun when I stamp, not stress and I was starting to stress. Did I cheat? I will leave that up to you to decide -- I liked the card, no one has seen it yet, and it works with the photo -- I AM OKAY with that~ :)

However, I have no idea what I did to create this card! How ridiculous [embarrassing]  is that.  I do know I used Hero Arts Antique Flowers and Butterflies, and Friend.

Did this photo inspire you?  Come on over to For Your Inspiration and play!  Also, don't forget to check out the other DT's~  Thanks for stopping by!

EDITED: Okay I felt really guilty by using a previous card, and then I remembered we have a digi sponsor this month!  Okay, guilt overwhelmed me, so I made an ABC project using a digi from Fresh Brewed Designs.

I am going to give this to my boss for Mom's Day. This coffee cup digi is perfect!

(I saw these adorable paperclips on Pinterest the other day -- how perfect for this altered tin holder.)


Okay, now, really, I am done  :).  Thanks for stopping by~

Vicki you cracked me up! Your first card is stunning. Love the background you created. Just wish you could tell me how you did it:) I'm glad that guilt drove you to make another project because that little tin is so stinkin' cute.

Both projects are awesome. I love the background on your card! And the cute little tin is a great gift (and teacher appreciation is this week...I'm getting ideas!).

Your butterfly card is GORGEOUS!!! I loooove the deep shades of green. I am a huge fan of teal and black, so this really just stood out to me. Gorgeous!!!

And awww! Now I feel bad that you felt bad and had to create another project for this challenge!!! :((

I adore your sweet little box! What a FUN idea those paper clips are. I hope your boss loves it and treasures it.

I am so very happy and honored to sponsor For Your Inspiration for this challenge.
Big Smiles,
Heather

Great work Vicki - I love the floral card, and no you weren't cheating at all! The altered tin is a stroke of genius, I LOVE it!!
Have a happy weekend - Sylvia x

I threw out a card recently,too. I'm usually good at "saves" but it was hopeless. Glad to see I'm not the only one! I think it takes courage to toss something we worked so hard on. Your later effort was great!
