Arrow IC461 - Cotton and Crumbs {10-04-14}

How about something fabulously YUMMY for our inspiration this week?! I mean, after all who doesn't love cupcakes!? I know I do. Especially those that are hand crafted with the most amazing bakery and design talents all combined into one at our inspiration site Cotton & Crumbs in the UK. I am convinced that you can't help but to be inspired, (warning: you may get some cravings too), when you browse this weeks inspiration site! Enjoy, and wishing you the SWEETEST inspiration ever!

My Card
SmilynStef's Gorgeous Card


Here's a hint for getting the hyperlinks for your upload descriptions. Looking at the images, click on the thumbnails until you've got the big picture that you like on the right side. Then right click on your mouse, or Command Click with a Mac, and select "Copy Image Address". That will put the hyperlink on your clipboard so that you can paste it into your description when you upload your card!

Challenge Goals:
Don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image reminds you of it. Rather, take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on your impressions when you look through the images. Remember, it can just be the color palette or style that ignites your creativity. Whatever draws you to the designs, take the challenge of doing something uniquely inspired today. Please be sure that all of your descriptions have a link back to your inspiration piece available only from Cotton & Crumbs.

Use the keyword: IC461 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC461 Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded five of my favorites...so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger. Please let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please.

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.

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 Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary!

If you private message me your address, I will send you the 'Forever and Always' card I made for the challenge. I didn't have it planned for anyone.

Thanks for always sharing your wonderful designs on the IC every week!

Hugs,
Audrie
