This week's Inspiration comes from a toy store in one of my favorite cities, Madison, Wisconsin. Oompa was the dream of Milanie Cleere who wanted her children to experience toys without batteries, blinking lights or cartoon themes. Oompa offers a constantly expanding collection of European wooden toys, baby toys, educational toys, lunch bags and modern children's furniture to urbane and discerning adults who want to expose the young children in their lives to non-character branded, quality toys that are designed to withstand generations of use.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded three of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. The rest of you, remember to let us know which product from Oompa that inspired you.
Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own.
Use the keyword: IC239 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.
How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. 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). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.
Good evening! I think I should play, ya think? Just been busy with my kids, Zumba, health issues, and helping out at church...too tired to do anything else! Going to check this site out and hopefully make a card. It's been awhile! Thanks Stef!

My goodness there was so much to choose from but when I stumbled across the hearts - my heart went pitter patter and I fell in love with the colors - which seemed to remind me of the new SU In Colors - I just had to tried it - here's my card -
