Getting Cricky GD: Inspired Heart

Happy Sunday and Happy Mothering Day to all the mums across the pond. Although now that I think of it, I might be late seeing that London is just a tad bit ahead of us in time :)

Today, I'm a being featured as a GD at Getting Cricky. I'm excited to be there and like Kristal said, It's about time. lol. This weeks theme is Inspired Heart. I used my favorite couple from The Greeting Farm and inspired myself from the first card I made with these cuties. LOL, boy do I sound conceited I inspired myself from myself. Lol!! Actually, as much as i adore working with my stamps and products I sometimes feel lost. So Ill go through my older projects or rummage through my belongings and see what I have. 99% of the time, this will do the job. So when I began working on this project, I knew I wanted to replicate the first card I created with couple (seen on my sidebar) but not completely copy it. I used most of the same DP and I used my markers (not something I do very often) and changed it up a bit.

Now this is Inspired Heart because I created it for a fellow blogger as a special rak. I wanted to send her a little something that brought a smile to her face. I wanted to create good vibes/karma in this world we live in. Although it is a beautiful world, it can be bleak at times. So my idea was to create something beautiful and meaningful and send it off wholeheartedly to her. I think we should all do this. Create or send a little "sunshine spot", like Kristal calls it, to someone else out there because we can always use a little "sunshine".

Lol, I believe I just got completely off topic so i will stop here :). Now make sure to hop on over to Kristals blog to check out the challenge and play alog. She has a fabby prize to go along with it!

Kissy, Kissy digi from The Greeting Farm
Have I already told you that I just love, love, love that company.
