Arrow IC391 ~ Anything Preppy {06-01-13}

Inspiration Challenge 391 ~ Anything Preppy

So great to be back after a few weeks of traveling.

This week's Inspiration Challenge site ~ Anything Preppy ~ was suggested by Angela ( Arizona Maine ) because she thought the Preppy theme would be fun. Having grown-up in the 80's, I have lots of fun preppy clothing memories myself. We hope you find these fun designs inspiring.

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 design from Anything Preppy that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC391 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

Arizona Maine's Card 1 ~ Quatrefoil Thinking of You

Arizona Maine's Card 2 ~ Preppy Note Cards

My sample ~ Just Keep Swimming

IC391 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.

Smile IC391 Friendships Are Sewn

Awesome site, Stephanie! I especially liked the jazzy pattern of the Rope Tote with its brown straps and did a retro style sewing card. Here's Friendships Are Sewn

Cool site. Thanks for the challenge - I haven't got to play for a while. Great to get back to it.

I took my inspiration from the color of this dress The Mod Squad Dress

Smile IC391 Cookie Day

Thanks to Angela, too for our great inspiration site today! I did a 2nd card, sorry don't have my camera but used my cell phone- but onto my card here-
inspired by the Enamel Bamboo Bangle with its lovely bright colors and gold highlights- used Hero Art's CL331 Birthday for my sentiment and cookies, and Lawn Fawn's Critters From The Forest for my forest friends. Here's Cookie Day
