IC100 - Personally Inspiration [3-Nov-07]
Inspiration Challenge 100 - Personally Inspiration - IC100

Yep, the 100th challenge is upon us! This challenge will be a little different than past challenges. I would like you to make a card for a specific person - someone who inspires you. Think about the colors and textures that person likes and make a card inspired by them, for them.

As with all my challenges - the rules are pretty vague :) Your choice of inspiration can be anyone for any reason -- choose a person who inspires you to get out of bed, or to break that habit, or to be a better person, or to smile more! This doesn't have to be hard-core (yes, I love Grey's Anatomy ;))

And if this whole idea is just too big for ya, then just go back to the list and have a rerun :mrgreen:

View IC100 Gallery

How to Play View the attached image. You may be inspired to recreate the piece - but that isn't necessary...get your inspiration from the colors, layout, or 'theme'. Don't worry - no card is 'wrong'! 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). Thank you.

Wow! Am I first! This looks like such a fun challenge Karen! It is pretty late here, so I'll have to work on this in the morning! My friend Beth is the enabler who got this whole crafting ball rolling for me, so I would say that she is my best inspiration. Promise I'll get something made and up in the a.m.! Again, thanks Karen for the great challenge!

golly 11-02-2007 07:41 PM

Maybe I am first. Thanks Karen, for another challenge.Not first but close. lol. Hmmm, lots of people inspire me. But I will choose just one. maybe my DD, she started me on this stamping hobby.

lacyquilter 11-02-2007 07:42 PM

Goodness, Karen. You're making me think! I was hoping for something easy tonight that my tired brain could handle.

chrisations.ink 11-02-2007 07:44 PM

OMG! Am I first? (maybe). This inspiration challenge is so heartfelt, Karen. Thank you! I'm gonna think on this tonight and play in the AM! Thank you for hosting the IC, Happy 100th everyone. This gallery is going to be full of talent, for sure!!!!!

pachyderm23 11-02-2007 08:13 PM

This sounds like a wonderful idea!! I will hafta sleep on it!!

rhondag 11-02-2007 08:18 PM

I hope I can do this one....oh the thinking!

My upline is inspirational...we just stamped this evening (yippee!), but my DDs are also inspirational...eek, the choices!

jemur 11-02-2007 08:24 PM

I know a little 96 year old lady who is right on the ball - she inspires me to enjoy life no matter what age you are!!
Now think, think, think!

FaieeMom 11-02-2007 08:45 PM

Oh the choices!!! Man, I have hubby & mom in mind...maybe I'll do both! :confused: My mom is my biggest inspiration though...soooo....I'll sleep on it and work on it in the a.m. Wonderful challenge Karen!

Miss Minx 11-02-2007 08:52 PM

:shock: Well, aren't you just full of surprises, Karen!! I'll have to think about this one....

rhondag 11-02-2007 09:09 PM

Well duh! I am pretty slow....my upline helped me make this card tonight. She suggested that I cut out the good flower images and put them on dimensionals on the image sheet with the good stems! Very smart and inspirational-I would NOT have thought of it in a million years.

I had started prior, but didn't get it finished until after this challenge was given btw. I had made a mistake with the poppies on one image attempt and then ruined my second try when I grabbed my old Old Olive marker for the stems (I had a thick yucky stem because the marker is smashed).

I helped her start her gallery tonight----she couldn't link to anything because her post count was too low (7 but it said she had only 3) so here's her gallery: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=11670

And here is my card: Jessika Inspired Poppies

I'm away all day at a conference today so don't know if I'll be able to stamp - but I'll be thinking of this challenge!

Vicky Gould 11-03-2007 02:33 AM

What a great way to celebrate the 100th inspiration challenge, Karen. I chose my sister because she was a single mom who worked at work, came home and worked and helped our parents out too. She just recently retired with her house and car paid for, no bills and money in the bank. Kudos to Sis! Oh, the card? She loves wolves and has statutes and pics all over her house!

My Sis

Thanks for looking!

Here is my challenge card. I am inspired by my DD and she is the one that got me started with card making. She does lots of my shopping for me, Here is the OUTSIDE of THE CARD I made for her. And here is the INSIDE VIEW. This is a front and back stamp. Really cute.
