Tuesday Inspiration

I'm looking out the window at the falling snow, the accumulation of yet another four inches (that's what's sticking anyway) and the sun trying to burn through, without much success.  And then glance at the calendar and see that May, yes MAY, is just a week or so away.  Hard to believe given the view out the window.  I hear, supposedly, by the weekend we'll see 70's.   It's too bad that our furnace decided to give out on Sunday, just as the cold was moving in and not say, oh, next weekend when the forecast was more spring-like and less need-heat-like.

Today your inspiration comes from Wendi Robinson and her cute card made from the April All Year Cheer card kit.  The paper line is October Afternoon's Midway - the look is a far cry from the amusement park feel the line carries with it.  I love that!  I also love how Wendi mixes things up and even sees her designs in off-the-card ways, like the diamond shapes she trimmed out of one of the patterned papers.  Awesome.

Today, create a layout or card using Wendi's card as the inspiration.  Maybe you'll see shapes in your papers you can use as a background, border or embellishment.  Maybe you'll see coordinating products in other packs within your monthly kit.  Maybe you just love the grey and pink color combo.  Maybe you've got scraps on your table from your last project and just want to create a card.  Whatever it is, upload the link to the comment section for you chance at April's prize.

Don't you just love getting a handmade card?  There's just something about it that warms the soul.  If you're looking to add that thoughtful, homemade touch to your next card-giving opportunity, join autoship for the Card Kits.  You get more than enough product to create at least six, more often than not usually more, cards with each kit.  You also get full-color instructions for the examples produced by the designers.  With a membership you're sure to get a kit (they've been selling out regularly recently) and you'll start to build a nice stash off all-occasion cards for you to have on hand.

Happy Tuesday,
