Inspiration with The Craft's Meow

Welcome back to Day #2 of New Release Previews
during the

Along with sharing projects inspired by the newest stamp releases
(which will be available March 21st)
we have a challenge with each day that you can participate in.
For all the details, check out the TCM Blog.

Today's challenge is an Inspiration Challenge....

Take a look at this gorgeous photo and let those
creative juices flow.

Today is Mother's Day in the UK, so I was thinking about my
dear sweet mother-in-law as I created this card...miss her so much....

Another beautiful stamp set from Nina B Designs for TCM.
It's called 'Cherished' and will be a perfect addition to your stamp collection.

My background frame, flowers and stems are created from papers by 
Little Yellow Bicycle and lily bee design.
I used the Lacey Squares die from Spellbinders for my base frame
and used the Martha Branch Border, which was inspired by the
beams in the photo above.

I'm linking this up to the Vintage Florals Challenge over at
CARDS/Create as well.

How would you like a chance to win this stamp set before it
goes on sale next week?  All you need to do is visit our designer's blogs and
make sure to leave a comment over on The Craft's Meow blog.
You'll have until 9pm PDT each day to leave your comment and the winners
will be announced the following day along with the next preview & challenge.

We would love for you to play along with each challenge during our
1st Birthday Bash...all the details are on the TCM Blog.

I'd love to hear from you....please leave a note & make sure you leave
a contact address so I can say hello back.
