Inspired by Others

Over on Facebook, I have been fussing about the fact 
that I have had a hard time transitioning out of
Christmas creations to what's next, whether that be
just general winter-themed card or even, dare I
say it....Valentine's?

I found terrific inspiration by way of two
different challenges.

and the
in which I CASED one of my favorite designers...

I absolutely love the colors from both photos. The softness
of the cakes and cookies were reflected in the sweet
wreath from Heidi Grace.
The sentiment is from Paper Inspirations
and my favorite baker's twine from The Twinery 
wraps it up so sweetly.
The beautiful pink rhinestones in Sav's card came alive
in mine with the pink rhinestone hearts and of
course the 'themes' mesh as well.

Before I forget, Jenny over at Wee Memories
(host of Scrappy Saturday Challenge)
is having a giveaway of this fabulous storage 
cubby from Studio 3 Solutions.

If I were you, I'd go check it out!
What a great little Christmas pressie this would be!
Fingers crossed : )

Thanks again for stopping by!
I LoVe hearing from you!
