This week's Inspiration Site was suggested by Lela ( Serenity_Stamper ) who was shopping in a Godiva Chocolate Store and thought the gorgeous packaging would make for fun inspiration ... remember, you don't have to take the inspiration literally ... maybe you'll find inspiration in thinking about chocolate, hot chocolate, or candy ... just ride the inspiration train wherever it takes you.
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.
Stephanie- great challenge! loved the contrast of the golds, browns and hot pink, so I incorporated that into my card, along with SU's Perfectly Preserved, a dc flower, and some puzzle pieces and embossing. Added a Godiva-like pink bow with a brown tie
Here's Chocolate Just For You

For someone who loves chocolate (me) this is an awesome site, Stef and Lela. I will be playing along, but will not be able to upload it to my computer for a few days. It is sick with a virus . At least I have my IPad to keep up to date with the challenges. Will upload when my DBIL can come over and fix. Till then, have fun ladies

I walked by Godiva's display window here in Charston, South Carolina yesterday and snapped an iPhoto to make a card based on what was in the window when I return home. What a surprised to see govida as the IC today! excellent choice Stephanie!
With all that gold and chocolate, I might have to make another ... yum!
