Arrow IC336 ~ Hard To Find {05-12-12}

Hi Everyone!

This week's Inspiration Challenge is the wonderful web store called Hard To Find. This on-line shopping resource was founded in 2008 by two working "mums" in Australia featuring a selection of beautifully designed, hand-crafted, unique products from the best, creative Australian designers and importers. I hope you'll get a moment to dive in and see what awaits here!

But! If you don't have time to spend browsing the website, and still want to play along, I've attached a few samples from the store that you are welcome to use as your inspiration!

My Sample: Amazing

Quick Link to IC335 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached sample images and/or browse the suggested website. Get your inspiration from the the individual items, patterns, theme or color pallets. 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. Explore and enjoy ~ 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.

Heart IC336 Rose and Azaleas

Great challenge! I really liked the red floral bag and came up with Rose and Azaleas- with a "kissed" azalea bloom stamp. Happy Mother's Day!

Inspiration was certainly NOT "Hard to Find" today! lol! Great site - lots of fun stuff to look at and probably just as well that they're in Australia and I'm in Canada!

Here's my rainbow card.
