Happy to be your guest host this weekend for the IC on behalf of Stephanie!
The web store for the Inspiration Challenge this week is "Close 2 My Art". This web store features work created by "Michele". This artist is incredibly talented, with a very playful flare! "Often, if something seems too perfect, I will skew it towards the unrealistic to capture the essence of a whim. Although the pieces I design are practical, my hope is that my art will never become so serious that I betray the uniqueness that inspires me."
Use keyword IC318 (no spaces or extra characters) and be sure you have commas between your key words.
If you don't have time to spend browsing the website, attached are a few samples from the store that you are welcome to use as your inspiration!

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.
ANNE - Oh, my! What a GREAT site! So much whimsical, colorful, creative art! Inspired by this art, I think I could make a card a day for a month or more! Hope I can participate in the challenge today, too. Have fun everybody! Can't wait to see where this art takes ya'll!
What a fantastic gallery! I was inspired by Cathouse and came up with Birdhouse- kept the wonderful stripes and polka dots, and have instead an embossed toucan, perching on a branch. Have a great Saturday!
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. –Maya Angelou
Had my inspiration all picked out and saved to my computer desktop yesterday, but didn't get a chance to execute until today, so I incorporated it into my Whoo Loves Pam? card for the Featured Stamper challenge today, too!
Within you there is a solitude and peace to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself...
