Arrow IC116 ~ Country Living Color That Cheers (23-Feb-08)

Inspiration Challenge 116 ~ Color that Cheers

After another week of snow and ice in my corner of the world, I thought this colorful scene from Country Living Magazine would be wonderful inspiration.

Make sure you use the keyword: IC116 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card.

My sample ~ Tres Chic Refrigerator
View IC116 Gallery

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, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. 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 for joining me on this inspiration journey.

I did a quick card tonight. It was inspired by a country living setting, but I think Dr. Seuss came too!

Here is my crazy card: Dream it and Become it!

Perhaps I'll do a big girl card tomorrow!

Thanks for the challenge. It was more fun than I thought it would be!

TFL!

Thanks Stef for the great IC piece.. which I noticed is entitled Colour that Cheers - well, I went for the blue.. which is why my card might have ended up called............

Many Birds...No Mojo...

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=127143

As always, thanks for looking!! Going to go have to drink a coke slurpee to cheer myself up after this blue, no mojo card.!!! LOL!! It's true!!

I liked the colors in the inspiration piece, and they worked great for my brand new to me stamp set I bought today

Tulip Spring

You know what the best part about *this* inspiration challenge is? There's so much to look at and be inspired by on the original picture, that everyone's cards are coming out looking completely different. I like it!!
