IC243 ~ Birdhouse Blessings {07-31-10}

Inspiration Challenge 243 ~ Birdhouse Blessings

This weeks SCS Inspiration Challenge found via some links shared by resqarbie ~ the Etsy Store Birdhouse Blessings. Steve & Kate (S&K Creations) have been building birdhouses together for 20 years. They try very hard to make sure that each birdhouse has it's own personality with a whimsical, yet usable design.

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, Iíve uploaded three of my favorites Ö so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. The rest of you, remember to let us know which product from Birdhouse Blessings that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC243 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My sample ~ Blue Skies Ahead

resqbarbie's sample ~ Home Sweet Home

IC243 Gallery

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.

So much fun inspiration there - I thought of a side-step card when I saw the business card holder, but wanted to use more of my faux wood, so made this instead:

I did another card for today's challenge, Stef. The whole site gave me the idea for this card.
