A Year of Inspiration!

It was one year ago yesterday that I posted my first card on Splitcoast Stampers. I have since uploaded almost 300 cards and/or projects. That either means that I have nothing better to do, or I really love this hobby of mine! You can click on the link to my SCS gallery and check out my very first card. I actually still like it!

Today I played along with two challenges over at SCS. The first was the Inspiration Challenge IC162. Here's the piece I chose for inspiration:
I love the colors in this piece (it's green!) and I also love the clean, modern look. Not to mention that I love florals and leave patterns! I also made my card for the Divine Design '09 Challenge BVC09. This is a monthly Bible verse challenge that I played along with a coupke of times last year. I think the reason that I stopped playing along is that I don't have many Bible verse stamps. A lot of the partcipants write up their verse and print them on the computer, but that takes alot more time than just grabbin' and inkin' up a stamp! Well I remedied by lack of Bible verse stamps by purchasing my first ever acrylic stamps from Verve! The jury is still out on acrylic versus rubber, but at least I have nine new scripture stamps to use! I love how they combines different fonts in their stamps. So here is the card I created:

Some supplies that I used:
STAMPS: Serenity, Philippians 4:13
PAPER: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Whisper White, Summer Picnic DSP
ACCESSORIES: SU! Felt Flowers, SU! Brads, SU! White EP, SU! Grosgrain, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I need to finish putting my Christmas tree in its box.
