Hi All. Just popping on here quickly to share a Tickled Pink birthday/Mothers Day card (minus the Pink). Gasp!!! I know, right?! :) I hope you are all having pleasurable weather in your neck of the woods. I'm dealing with almost 90 degree temp here. Oh boy!! Its going to be a hot Summer! Ps. What do you think of those faux baby prima roses? I made them myself. WooHoo!!

I will be playing along with: Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge - #17 Lace and Pearls. This is my version/take on Lace and Pearls. I wanted to use non traditional lace and pearls so I used black lace, so it could be a little racy, and buttercup pearls. Lol, oh how risque! 2nd, Flutter By Wednesday - #153 Open Challenge (as long as it has a butterfly, fairy or angel.) 3rd, Southern Girls Challenge - Let's Hear It for the Girls. And finally, I'm playing along with Lily Pad Cards - Inspirational Challenge #1. This challenge was a Free for all but also it was based on inspiration you found on their site. They gave you several items to choose from: From cards, to covers, to color palettes to etc. Well, I found my inspiration from a non traditional item. I was inspired by their article The Frugal Crafter - Yellow Pages (and White Ones, Too!) This article is how a crafter can use the yellow pages to its full advantage. It has some great tips and I enjoyed the reading. Well, since I am trying to be a good girl and not use pink, lol, I was inspired by the color scheme. At first, I was a bit afraid it. I mean c'mon, its yellow! Lol, but always up for an artistic challenge I went for it. I ended up loving the color scheme (Yellow, Black, White and Grey/Charcoal) so much so that I will definitely be using it again. So I guess you never know where and how inspiration will strike you. The smallest or most mundane item can lead you to create a masterpiece of your own. So go out there and look for your inspiration.
I will be back tomorrow (hopefully) with my Tiddly winner :) Thanks for stopping by! And don't forget about the Altered Alice challenge going on.
