inspiration challenge

Yesterday I received a package for my littlest one, Katie. Inside was this adorable little Janie & Jack sundress along with matching hat and socks from my aunt. I love it! So I've been inspired to make my aunt a special thank you card using this sundress. Here is my challenge to you - to be entered into a raffle, place a link to your 'inspired creation' in the comments and I'll choose a winner through random.org on Friday the 11th. Are you game? Your odds are probably pretty good on winning since my blog is yet to be 'discovered', ha!

If you decide to upload your photo to Splitcoaststampers, use the keyword KICK1 (karen's inspiration challenge, k?) and we can see them all in one place.
Thanks so much for participating - I'll have a sample soon...

Hi again! Here is my sample - can you say bashful blue and night of navy?!! I was inspired by the color and flowers, so I went with that. The scallop square is from the large rectangle Nestabilities die and I just printed the 'thanks a bunch' on the computer using AL Serenade font from 2 peas in a bucket.

SCS submissions (please don't let my photo be all alone by herself...)

Have a great weekend!


Details - paper: bashful blue, whisper white, night of navy; ink: bashful blue, white craft; stamps: friendship blooms, little flowers, seeing spots; accessories: nestability die cuts, flower punches (ek success), white taffeta ribbon, ice rhinestone brads


  1. I think your blog is on it's way to being discovered! I check in to your blog at lease twice a day, in fact, I have your blog link up on my blog!!!!

    I hope to have time to do a card for your challenge this weekend!!!

    Thank you!!

  2. I LOVE inspiration challenges - they're my favorite!! This was fun, although I wasn't too creative and didn't stray too far from the inspiration. Here's a link to my blog post with a pic of my card. THANKS! http://jentapler.blogspot.com/2008/04/inspiration-challenge.html

  3. Thanks for the card comment!! I'm still pretty new to card-making (scrapbooking is my first love), so working with a smaller "canvas" is sometimes hard for me. But I'm having fun! The challenges have really helped. Also, I love your sample!! I'm dying to get the nestabilities - I don't have any. Are you happy with them? I think I'm going to have to break down and get some - they seem so versatile.
