Welcome to the final Inspiration Challenge of 2011 ... it sure has been a fun year sharing inspiration with you ... thanks to all of you for joining the Inspiration Challenge fun each week.
This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from the Etsy Store of Embroidery Everywhere. They have everything from summer to winter … from cute to cultural … and lots in between. I’m sure you will find something to inspire you.
I asked Judy (jaydekay) to join me this week & make an additional card to get those creative juices flowing.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded five of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration.
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. 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. 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.

Great challenge Steph and I haven't played in this challenge for years as I always considered it the hardest when it's really sort of like the Featured Stamper. I was trying to hard to get the exact same look rather than my interpretation of it.
I'm not going to be very good at comments today because I have our family New Year's party to plan for and make goodies for, and since it's almost 1 p.m. and I need to clean my craft area as it looks like a bomb it - I'm so glad I'm getting shelving installed in the hall closet right outside of my studio today! Whoo hoo! I'm very excited about that. Now maybe I can get organized and I also need to eBay off well over half of my craft studio starting in the next few weeks too which will help immensely.
The inspiration that I chose is in my card description. I used a lot of new Sale-A-Bration products for this card to give you a sneak peek!
Thank you for looking and I hope you like this. Thank you for the challenge Steph and Happy New Year! God bless you.
