New Goodies!

Does this little deer melt your heart? Another set from the new Occaissions Mini Catalog! Perfect for all the "deer ones" in your life...cards or scrapbooks...accompanied by a rabbit and owl and a tree! Too too cute!
.
This card I did for yet another challenge you can find out about here- CPS109. With an Old Olive card base, I added plaid pattern paper (sorry, it was a leftover scrap, I don't know who made it). The grosgrain ribbons were layered, because the orange had white stitches that clashed against the plaid. (ew!) Then, I hand-cut around the white circle with old SU scallopped scissors to make the Tempting Turquoise frame.
.
I know that a large portion of my cards are inspired by challenges. There are challenges for using certain colors, sketches or layouts, themes, techniques, limited supplies, folds, styles. Truth is, I have so much stuff to choose from that I could spend all day just looking for a starting point. So I check out the challenges and use the ones that can help me get started. I stamp with some friends that like to use stamping catalogs or magazines to case from, and we have found we get alot more done by having certain perameters set for us. I'd be interested in knowing, where do you get your "starting points" from?

C-Ya Later!

Awwww...YES, it totally did! Love this cute deer. And thank you so much for the sweet comment on my dd's song!! That was so sweet. It really is a beautiful and touching song. I found it last year and sang it and she's been singing it all year round--out in the backyard during summer...in the shower...just anytime! LOL Isn't that so precious coming from a child? Love that!
