For Your Inspiration 26

Can I just tell you how much I love being on this Team!  Steph comes up with the most gorgeous inspirational photos evah!  Seriously, look at this beauty!

Was I inspired or what?
I have been seeing this Memory Box window die for a while now, and simply had to get it!  I love the effect of looking out a window and seeing a gorgeous scene.  In hindsight, I got the smaller window, I think I should of gotten the larger one.  [Just sayin..]  I used the fun, newly released GKD stamp set, Wild About You, illustrated by Theresa Momber, along with Vogue Vases for the sentiment.

A little side note, have you heard of an Embossing Buddy?

Well, I have had mine for awhile now and FINALLY used it.  Can I just say Duh!  What a difference it makes - none of those tee tiny specks of embossing powder showing on my card!  Yep, I'm a believer now! :)

Meanwhile, pop over and play in the FYI Challenge!  Hope to see you there~
Thanks for stopping by~

I have - and use - my Embossing Buddy. It really works!

LOVE your card! It's the perfect take on that inspiration picture. I see that window die everywhere too and adore it. Now, I just need to have it!

Wonderfully sponged. Great card! Love the window pane.


Hi Vicki - the colouring is fabulous, and I love the way you have popped the beautiful scene behind the window frame. Totally gorgeous!
Re. the "Embossing Buddy" - I have had one of these for many years - it saves a lot of tears when heat-embossing!! In the UK they are called "Anti-Static Bags" - "Embossing Buddy" sounds much more friendly!
Have a super weekend - Sylvia x
