I am posting my own inspiration. As primitive as it is... (my sweet husband won't fix the scanner). I saw this ad about the same day that I saw a cherry card on the SU web site. I totally copied one card and then adapted the other to look more like the ad. I apologize for not giving credit to the talented artist who came up with the idea. The funny thing is that it took me two days to track down a punch to punch the cherries! Thanks to Frances for lending me her punch!
I spent all day yesterday working on ideas for my workshop this week. The theme is cool, white, summer cards. Some are already posted on this blog, and some I just changed up a little.
Check back later...

One more attempt at the Top 10 of Kristin,s picks. I am really into white cards right now. They remind me of Easter dresses. This on is so simple with scallops and circles.
We are off to the lake for the weekend- no stamping, but I bought 4 magazines to read!
Have a fun weekend.

I found this challenge from Beate a real challenge. The cake inspiration was so pretty, and I wanted to convey the same soft flowers on a card. I like the results- even though it was so hard to get a good picture.
Thanks for looking.

I felt so creative yesterday that I actually did two challenges! This on is a pattern beate put on her blog- and on Splitcoaststampers.com. I am always looking for new ways to tie ribbon. A bowline wouldn't work, so I went with the knot tied like a tie. Hopefully this is the only tie our Daddy will be getting for Father's day!
Thanks for looking!

Ooh -aah I love this card! It was so simple to put together too! I used Pick a Petal to stamp on So Saffron, Rose Red, and white card stock. Then I added a little Old Olive ink and cut them all out. I embossed the circle on the background with clear powder, then embossed a few extra for the border. I punched the extra circles and Going gray textured paper with the 1" punch. The center of the flower is chipboard with French knot tied thru it. The ribbon is a luscious taffeta. An inside secret- I used the strip of embossed background (the front of the card) that was trimmed off the cover the top half of the circles on the inside front. It keeps it looking neat.
Thanks for looking.

It was a dark and stormy night...
actually we were at Family Fun night at the baseball park. The coaches were playing a rousing came of softball (with lots of coaching from the parents) and some kids were playing a Homerun derby on the other field. It seems that my hubby was watching this homerun derby and talking to other parents about how the Chenault family is always hurt in some interesting way. Right now my 11year old is in the last week of the cast he is wearing for a fractured hand. Anywhoo, as the dust settled on the pitchers mound' who was lying in fetal position moaning in pain? Of course, the other Chenault boy...Blair took a ball to the face smacked off the end of a bat!
After a rather non eventful 3 hour visit to Womens and Childrens, we learned that Blair fractured the orbital floor, and his nose. He has a real nice shiner and if you look carefully you can see the print of the ball on his cheek.
The moral of the story... Bubble wrap may be a good idea!
