Arrow IC748 {4/4/20} American Meadows

Happy Saturday & welcome to April!

I certainly hope all of you & yours have been able to stay healthy & are trying to adjust to our new norm, such as it is. It's my pleasure to host the Inspiration Challenge today! This week's challenge is brought to you by American Meadows. Since they are a gardening site, there are a ton of floral pictures but you don't have to do a floral. A color or shape may be your inspiration. So head on over, pick what appeals to you & go create! You may also want to pick an image from the American Meadows Pinterest Boards, they have a LOT going on over there. Be sure to link us up to what inspired you.

IC748 Gallery
Use Keyword: IC748
Here's my card: Sleepy Hollow

Did you know, we have an Inspiration Challenge Pinterest Board? Be sure to check it out!


For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many, or too little, images to choose from, I've uploaded 5 (or more) of my favorite designs! 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.


**Please note: If you are unable to view the Inspiration Site in your country, please use one of the pictures provided for you (thumbnails below) or visit the American Meadows Pinterest Boards. Unfortunately, we have no control over the sites' viewing areas. **

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 us on this inspiration journey.

NEED HELP LINKING A CARD? FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:1. Open 2 windows. One for your card, one for this thread.2. In this thread, click on reply and type what you want to show before the link.3. Go to your card window, highlight the address for your card. (The address bar will say //www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...stampers.....)4. Click edit. Click Copy.5. Go back to this thread. Click Paste.

NEED HELP GETTING A LINK TO YOUR INSPIRATION PICTURE?If you are unable to grab the link of your chosen picture, (on some sites, you can't, it only gives a link to the whole collection), hover over the picture in the collection that you want to link to. On a windows machine, right click the picture (on a Mac, 2 finger click). When the options come up, select COPY IMAGE ADDRESS. This link will be for that picture.

Thanks Julie for the cheerful site this week! So fun to see all of the beauful flowers and be reminded that if we are staying in, it's only temporary!

Seeing all the lovely plants makes me even more keen that my seeds arrive but overload means they are delayed!
I did use 2 pages for inspiration for my 2 cards
