Arrow IC338 ~ Charming Charlie {05-26-12}

Inspiration Challenge 338 ~ Charming Charlie

I am happy to Guest Host for Stephanie while she has a weekend off!
This week we are going to go to my favorite brick and mortar accessory store site: CHARMING CHARLIE.

My sister introduced me to this store last Christmas with all sorts of fun pink things (since I love pink!), and when I went to visit her over spring break in March, I got to actually go in the store. I LOVE how sections of the store are all one color, so if you are looking for a pink purse (which I bought), or a turquoise watch with lots of bling (which I bought), or a silver and pink seahorse keychain (which I bought), or the bracelet which inspired my card (which I bought) or some scarves in every color of the rainbow, you know right where to go! (Yeah, we went a little crazy...)

I take no responsibility for enabling you in your purchases, but I know you will find all sorts of fun things to inspire you to stamp!

Shop by Color, or Shop by Category. Just click on the top left of the site for your color choices (up to two), or use the search bar, or the category list to be inspired!

This may end up being more of a color inspiration than design, but that is okay too~!

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.

The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from Charming Charlie that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC338 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My sample ~ Be The One (believe it or not, it's not pink!)

IC338 Gallery

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.

What a fun design source, Judy. We have several of their stores in the St. Louis area and they always provide fun browsing(and buying). I love how it is organized by color. Thanks for hostessing today.

Oooooohhhhh, I love this place, too. My girls and I can spend hours and a pretty penny in this store. I actually got a couple of beautiful tops there recently I hope I get to play.

I made the mistake of checking out the store locations and found there is one in Orlando. I may be in trouble!!! But, I did make a second card.

What fun and what wonderful creations from everyone. Here is my inspiration and here is my card, now that the card is done and posted everywhere I realized I should have added some green flower soft for the foliage on the trees also??

Sorry, I really decided that this card needed green foliage around the flowers on the tree so I took it out and redid it. Here is mine. Here is my inspiration.
