Yep, the 100th challenge is upon us! This challenge will be a little different than past challenges. I would like you to make a card for a specific person - someone who inspires you. Think about the colors and textures that person likes and make a card inspired by them, for them.
As with all my challenges - the rules are pretty vague Your choice of inspiration can be anyone for any reason -- choose a person who inspires you to get out of bed, or to break that habit, or to be a better person, or to smile more! This doesn't have to be hard-core (yes, I love Grey's Anatomy )
And if this whole idea is just too big for ya, then just go back to the list and have a rerun
How to Play View the attached image. You may be inspired to recreate the piece - but that isn't necessary...get your inspiration from the colors, layout, or 'theme'. Don't worry - no card is 'wrong'! There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild -- be *inspired* and go get stamping!
Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Thank you.
Wow! Am I first! This looks like such a fun challenge Karen! It is pretty late here, so I'll have to work on this in the morning! My friend Beth is the enabler who got this whole crafting ball rolling for me, so I would say that she is my best inspiration. Promise I'll get something made and up in the a.m.! Again, thanks Karen for the great challenge!
Dorothy- Stamping keeps me sane!
OMG! Am I first? (maybe). This inspiration challenge is so heartfelt, Karen. Thank you! I'm gonna think on this tonight and play in the AM! Thank you for hosting the IC, Happy 100th everyone. This gallery is going to be full of talent, for sure!!!!!

Well duh! I am pretty slow....my upline helped me make this card tonight. She suggested that I cut out the good flower images and put them on dimensionals on the image sheet with the good stems! Very smart and inspirational-I would NOT have thought of it in a million years.
I had started prior, but didn't get it finished until after this challenge was given btw. I had made a mistake with the poppies on one image attempt and then ruined my second try when I grabbed my old Old Olive marker for the stems (I had a thick yucky stem because the marker is smashed).
What a great way to celebrate the 100th inspiration challenge, Karen. I chose my sister because she was a single mom who worked at work, came home and worked and helped our parents out too. She just recently retired with her house and car paid for, no bills and money in the bank. Kudos to Sis! Oh, the card? She loves wolves and has statutes and pics all over her house!
Here is my challenge card. I am inspired by my DD and she is the one that got me started with card making. She does lots of my shopping for me, Here is the OUTSIDE of THE CARD I made for her. And here is the INSIDE VIEW. This is a front and back stamp. Really cute.
Just another beautiful day at the beach.
