Arrow SNSS Inspiration Challenge #24 {01-25-12}

Welcome to Wednesday, and another Inspiration Challenge! We have a GREAT guest this week....PH in VA!! That's right, Patricia is joining us this week, and for a little something extra fun, she chose this week's sample picture! She has created an adorable sample to go along with this gorgeous picture from Martha Stewart:

SNSS_IC24_tbu

Look at all that inspiration! The red driftwood, the stones, the white candleholders....so many choices!

Using the picture above (and attached below), make a card, project, altered item, or anything else your mojo inspires you to make. It can be based on the colors, the textures, the theme...anything! I've pulled out a few colors, for those of you who love to use them as your jumping off point. I've also highlighted a few of the different textures and patterns in the picture, in case you'd rather use those as inspiration. Remember, there is no right or wrong, just be inspired and have fun! Upload your art to the gallery here at SCS, and use the keyword SNSSIC24 (note: you do not have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps image to play along, but to be considered for the Sweet 'n Sassy Spotlight you do). Feel free to add the link to your gallery upload here in this thread! While there is NO time limit to play along in this challenge, we'll post a new one each Tuesday morning!

Oh - make sure you use the challenge keyword when you upload. You don't have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps image (but we love it when you do). If you don't, just the challenge keyword is all you need. If you do use one of our stamps, make sure to add one of our keywords as well.

You can also see the challenge photo, my sample, and a sample from Patricia attached below.

Here is the whole challenge gallery.


Here is Patricia's card sample: Hugs & Kisses

If you aren't familiar with our general challenge guidelines, I encourage you to check them out. Also, if you are unfamiliar with uploading here at SCS, this may help: Sharing Your Art in the Gallery.

All right, y'all... my card is starting to feel lonely in the challenge gallery that Taylor linked in the original post!

Who else is going to play along in this challenge? It's the weekend... who's planning on crafty time?

Or, if you've made something and posted it to your blog, please share a link here so I can see what you've created.

I am SUCH a bad egg, PH!! I have pieces of a card put together, but it has been one of those weeks, and still have not finished it yet!

I am not sure I will be able to get to it this weekend, but will have it in the gallery for sure on Monday. So much for always being ahead this year!

I always struggle with inspirational photos, but this one was different. As soon as I saw the driftwood and blue colors, I knew instantly what I wanted to do! Here's my birthday bluebird card.
