Inspiration Challenge 137 ~ Rooster Outhouse

Hi All! I'm guest hosting the Inspirtion Challenge this week and had a blast looking for something fun and inspiring! I hope you'll be inspired to play along!! :-D Thanks for asking me Stephanie!!

How about some fun folk art this week to inspire you? Here's a link to a scene by Kay Lamb Shannon -- a rooster perched on an outhouse!

She's an amazing artist and has a wondeful gallery that can be seen here. The Rooster Outhouse poster is also attached below.

This is my Rooster Card based on the poster. I focused on the Rooster just because he makes me smile!! There's so much inspiration within the poster image to draw from, I hope you'll find something that inspires you or fits your style. Or better yet, stretch a little and and make it a personal challenge!! Feel free to take inspiration from any of the scenes in Kay Lamb Shannon's gallery if you'd prefer, they're all fun!

Make sure you use the keyword: IC137 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card.

IC137 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached image or checkout the link. Get your inspiration from the colors, style, detail or even the subject, just whatever kicks your mojo into gear!! Enjoy wherever your creative journey takes you today! Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ There are no rules and no card is 'wrong'. 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).

Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

Hi! WOW! GREAT challenge!!! I had a dickens of a time finding a "farm/woods" scene..I had stamp sets ALL OVER my floor! LOL! Then, I found some dp that I altered to "fit" the scene! Geez...Now I have to clean up my stampin' room...I didn't quite realize how MANY stamp sets I own! LOL! Happy Saturday everyone!

Here's today's submission:http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=79662

Wow, her gallery is wonderful! So many scenes I remember as a child in the '40's. Thanks for the inspiration Anne. Will have to see what I have to use for this one, it is a little out of my normal comfort zone!

debhorst 07-19-2008 04:24 AM

Thanks for filling in today and providing such a fun challenge--this was most fun card I have made in a while.

Here is my card for today:


AmylovesNormaJean 07-19-2008 04:52 AM

Wow! I love the look of the inspiration piece but this will be a hard one for me. I'll have to think about it all day and post later tonight. I don't have any outhouse/rooster stamps. I'll be forced to be very creative indeed.

joan ervin 07-19-2008 04:53 AM

Oh, man...I wish I was home to stamp!! What a great challenge, Anne....I love the inspiration posters!!! Have fun and I can't wait to see everyone's cards!!

Clownmom 07-19-2008 05:19 AM

I combined yesterday's Limited Supplies challenge with today's cute Rooster challenge -- http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...7047?cat=13588 (didn't have an outhouse!)

How fun, Anne - love this poster - thanks for hosting today. What a challenge to try to duplicate it in part - the worst part of which was finding the shrinky dink! Hope you like it!

Nothing to do, sittin' here thinkin' of you

Thanks for any kind comments - if not kind, please be gentle!

Not Sure?

BobbiesGirl 07-19-2008 07:40 AM

Oh, how fun. I have one in my backyard that we moved from Mom's house a while back. Dear to my heart from my childhood. Now it's a garden shed and there's not a rooster, but this is great.

okcapitolgirl 07-19-2008 07:57 AM

Here's mine!


MelodyGal 07-19-2008 08:04 AM

What a gorgeous gallery! And what an amazing coincidence for me. Just last week I went to a county fair for the first time and fell in love with the roosters. Before then, I thought there was only one kind of rooster. Boy was I wrong. They are just beautiful and so colorful, not to mention entertaining. Don't know if I'll have time to participate in this challenge, but I am so looking forward to everyone else's creations.

Mothermark 07-19-2008 08:12 AM

Thanks Anne! What a cool inspiration piece!

I have three views of Floyd the Flamboyant!


javagirl984 07-19-2008 08:19 AM

Wow, everyone did such an AMAZING job on this challenge. I love all of them and could not help but add a comment (compliement) on all of them. I have a cute outhouse stamp that I bought several years ago. It's perfect for this challenge. Off to play now. Thanks for the great challenge.
