Inspired By Sweet Friends

Hello … bonjour!  It’s been a bit creatively quiet hereabouts recently … though when I saw that two of my lovely friends (Darnell and Bev) are featuring strongly in the latest Inspired By challenge, I had to squeeze some time to play along!  Many of you will know that Darnell is filling in for Lesley … and that  Bev is her Guest Designer … seeing their gorgeous cards, as well as the delicious inspiration board, triggered a quick creative moment for me …

… and a quick post!  A Clearly Besotted word print background, a little posy made with stamped and die cut flowers and leaves from SSS, a sentiment banner from the same SSS set, and some dots of white Enamel Accents to mimic the touch of gypsophila in the inspiration.  Voilà!

    Here I am, just popping in to let you know you’re a winner at The Heart Desires, and BOOM: more beauty!! LOve the wonderful little stamped background for your sweet posy, Anita! [There are very few blooms left from the Summer … Chrysanthemums have arrived on the porch!] This little reminder of the wonderful Summer we’ve had is welcomed today! Just lovely, and perfect for Darnell, and Bev – so easy to enjoy, aren’t they? xx

    I know how it goes…with John being under the weather a bit as of late, and a three day run of YKWs for me, and trying to get ready for company…well, time is precious. I’m so glad you found a bit to make this card, and to play along at Inspired By. This is gorgeous. The scripty square with its pretty trio of blossoms is really, really lovely. I hope you have found time for yourself, too, my darling friend. Congrats on your THD win as well…no surprise there!!! Sending hugs and I hope to get an email to you after company goes home this weekend. xoxoxoxo

    I’d say you nailed this one to the wall…I love all that white space and the little collage you created. It hits all the fine points on the inspiration board perfectly. All those mini details you’ve picked up on make this card exceptional…including those charming white dots.

    This is such a lovely take on the inspiration photo, Anita! I love your choice of flowers and how you clustered them to allow for all that yummy white space! Thanks for the heads up about Darnell and Bev…I am definitely going to try and play along!

    What a sweet, sweet card! The colors are so soft and you have used one of my favorite layouts! The flowers are arranged perfectly and the enamel accents add a little something without overpowering! Looks like a winner to me!

    I think I’m losing my mind, Anita. I could have sworn I left a comment on your lovely card but I can’f find it now that I’m back to say “Thanks for sharing it with us at Addicted to Stamps and More”. It’s a perfect CAS card with it’s little focal point and inspiring sentiment.

    So sweet, Anita. Love the text background and your pretty mix of flowers. The white dots add something special. How fun that Darnell is running the challenge and Bev is GD … two of your special friends. I’ll have to check out the challenge, although I’m probably too late. xx
