Arrow IC495 - Schweitzer Linen {05-30-15}

Do you ever feel like the only thing you want is a bath and a bed!? Well that's exactly where I am this week....so it's beddy by time for me! Since I can't invite you over for a nap, would you please join me this week in exploring Schweitzer Linen! I am sure you'll find something cozy enough to get your creative juices flowing.

My Card


Challenge Goals:
Don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image on the board 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 remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by images from the Schweitzer Linen.


Use the keyword: IC495(no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC495 Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded 10 of my favorites.. so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS. Don't forget to 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. 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.

I love table cloths, Audrie. I inherited several passed down from generation to generation, but that never stops me from buying more. I just checked out this site. Wow, how great for an inspirational challenge. I don't think I'll have time to stop by tomorrow, but I'll try to create something soon.

Wonderful site this morning, Audrie! You find such great inspiration for us, and that's one reason this challenge is my favorite one of the week. Here's my card:

This was a neat website! I chose this one that inspired me - but instead of using tulips, I used lotus, and roses from Stampin' Up. (The third picture in #1 listing)

Thanks for the fun challenge, Audrie! Here's my Sail Away. Thanks so much for looking!

I'll be back later to comment..I have to help hubby with a storm door before the sun hits that side of the house. Usually that means I have the task of deciphering the instructions which usually read like they were written in an ancient caveman dialect and translated into something resembling English.

They don't call this the Inspiration Challenge for nothing. I would never have thought to create the card I did today, if not the inspiration I found in the Seascape towel set. I love the white back ground, but the thought of it never crossed my mind. Thanks for a great inspiration site, Audrie! Here is my Seashells

Here's my card. My lilacs have already bloomed, so I was happy to see some on one of the linen napkins and this stretches the season for me.

I do very much apologize for abandoning everyone on Saturday afternoon, but I broke my big toe and was in a a lot of pain most of this week. I'm doing much better and can't wait to share next weeks inspiration site with you! I looked at all the BEAUTIFUL cards that I missed and felt so left out of all the fun! Amazing how talented our stampers are on SCS. Again, my apologies for dropping off Saturday afternoon much earlier than I usually do.

BIG SWISHY HUGS,
Audrie
