My Inspiration

Happy Tuesday!

I was hard at work last night– getting all the preorders of the NEW Pink By Design Stamps ready to ship! They are here EARLY! 🙂

So, that means if you ordered “Take the Cake,” “Jump & Jive,” “Christmas Wishes,” or “Bountiful Blessings,” –you will soon be stamping away!

IF you didn’t get to order them– they are in stock–so hop on over and get your favorites!

Yesterday,  I worked on another Peachy Keen Challenge, where the challenge was to make something using their awesome Peachy Keen faces and our MUSE, or something that inspires me.

This was fun for me–because my children inspire me every single day.  They inspire me to create, they inspire me to be a better mom, a better wife, and a better person.  🙂

This photo was taken 2 years ago- when we were putting the Christmas tree up– our kids got tangled up in all the lit up Christmas lights.  It was so adorable, I had to take lots of pictures.  I just happened to come across this one the other day, and knew I wanted to use it!

I should do layouts more often–then I wouldn’t be so behind on them! 🙂

Recipe:
My Mind’s Eye and C’ordinations Paper
Create a Critter Cartridge
Imagine Stock Image for the Scalloped Rectangle (Remember, you can JUST cut with it–you don’t have to always print)
White Gelly Pen, Glossy Accents and Stickles for the Ornaments and Polka Dots 🙂
Peachy Keen Snow Cuties for the Christmas light bulbs– (The 2 above the sentiment also have my kids names written on them)
Pink by Design Bountiful Blessings Stamp Set “When I count my blessings, I count you twice.”

Speaking of Peachy Keen, I also did another Challenge for a sweet friend of mine, Karel.

She did a Fun Blog Hop, this past weekend to support Breast Cancer Awareness!  She has a challenge on her blog right now, to use the color Pink and the theme Halloween.  I have to admit, that even though I am a PINK girl, through and through–this one stumped me! 🙂

But, I decided to use the cute little Peachy Keen  Lisa Jean Halloween Witch, and practice on my coloring 🙂
