Happy Birthday – Inspiration Challenge!

Hola Peeps!

I hope you had as wonderful a weekend as I did.  I got to spend all day Saturday stamping, so that made me feel as though I was in heaven.  Also, the sun was out all day on Saturday, too – I had the windows open in my craft room.  Mmmmm . . . fall in the Northwest is always so glorious!!  Sadly we were back to usual rainy nastiness on Sunday.  Boooo!  LOL

So, my sweet friends on the ABC Toys & Crafts Design Team have cooked up a fun little challenge for you all.  It’s this amazing photo collage – isn’t it awesome?!!  The colors and content just took my breath away!!  This is what I came up with:

Happy Birthday Inspiration 2
Fun, huh?  I never have enough birthday cards, so that was a no brainer.  And I love, love, love these colors.  They just make me swoon.  The cake image is from a sweet set from My Cute Stamps called Tea Party.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts clear set called Big Hugs.  I also love the doily effect that the new Lacey Circle Nestabilities create – awesome, right?!!

STAMPS:  Tea Party (My Cute Stamps), Big Hugs (Hero Arts), Stitched Pinwheel Background (A Muse Artstamps)
INK:  Lady Bug, Rose Bud and Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento)
PAPER:  White CS (Neenah), Hibiscus Burst and Pure Poppy CS (Papertrey Ink), Bitty Dot DP (Papertrey Ink)
ACCESSORIES:  Lacey Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Classic Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Copic Markers, 3D Dots (EK Success), Doily Tag (Martha Stewart Crafts), Quickie Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin’ Up!), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers), Button (PTI), Baker's Twine (Divine Twine), Glue Dots

We’d all love for you to play along with us!  All you have to do is get your inspiration from the above photo collage – the colors, the content, really anything at all!  Then add your creation to Mr. Linky located HERE on the ABC Toys & Crafts Design Team Blog.  You have until Saturday, October 2nd at midnight (CST).
