TPE #230 - Photo Inspiration

Monday, December 16, 2013


Happy Monday!  Hope everyone had a nice weekend, particularly those in the path of the recent snowstorms.  Here in the south, it was rain again, lots and lots of rain.

Today, however, is looking to be pretty nice with sunshine and warmer temperatures.  Not exactly holiday weather, but I'm used to it.

If you are like me and still trying to get into the full swing of the holiday spirit,
then
pop on over to 


for this week's challenge ---


This week we have a photo inspiration 
for you:




Isn't that just a fantastic photo
chocked full of holiday warmth and coziness?

Come play along with us 
for some holiday crafting!

Here is my take on it:




SPIES:
STAMPS: Bow and Sentiment (Taylored Expressions); 
PAPER: White & black cardstock; DP - Making Merry (Little Yellow Bicycle).
INK: Versamark and white emboss powder. 
EXTRAS: lace border punch; Red tinsel emboss powder (on bow); holly stickers.


I decided to make one of the chalkboard easel cards I've done before.  Below is a side view to show you the easel a bit more clearly.




 Now it's your turn --

Use this week's photo inspiration 
to make 
those last minute Christmas cards and projects.
Then, link your project up 
at 
The Pink Elephant Challenge Blog 
and don't forget to check out
the other Design Team samples 
and 
leave them some blog luvin'! 



FOR FOLLOWING CHALLENGES:










Merry Christmas 
and 
Happy Holiday Blessings!

What a great card. I love all the different patterns, I would have never thought they'd work together, but they are great together. Thanks for entering the Eureka! Stamps Challenge this week.
