Arrow IC275 ~ Fossil {03-12-11}

Hi All!

Thanks to Stephanie for asking me to fill in this week! The web store for the Inspiration Challenge this week is "Fossil!" I confess, I did not know they sold much more than watches until my sister got a job there this week (Yay!! Finally!) and I checked out the web store! I was very impressed! Besides clothing, accessories and jewelry, I didn't know they actually sold antique items in their "Fossil Finds" section too!! Anyhow, take a look around the Fossil Web Store, I hope you find as much to be inspired by there as I did!

Use keyword IC275 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words. If you don't have time to spend browsing the website, attached are a few of the fun items from the store that you are welcome to use as your inspiration.

My Sample: Sasha Butterfly Card

And thanks to my stamping buddy, Lou (aka StampCat), who helped with this sample card this week:
Fossil Flowers

Quick Link to IC275 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached sample images and/or browse the suggested website. Get your inspiration from the the individual items, patterns, themes or color schemes. Just enjoy wherever your inspired and creative journey takes you! Make the inspiration piece your own! Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong'! There is no time limit on this challenge and there are no rules. Let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* to create, have fun, and share your artwork!!

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.

I tried linking the picture of the tote several times, it's just not working for me today.
It links fine through my blog, but not here. I got it to work.

I'm on vacation for two weeks, so this site has helped me get things off to a great start! Last night, one of Fossil's wallets was the inspiration for this card. And then this morning Sallie's beautiful card caused me to go back and make two others. Both were from tee-shirts on the site. A baby boy card, and a cheery spring birthday card. Better stop procrastinating and get back down to my craft room to work on a baby book for my newest grandchild.
