OCC What inspires You?

Rock The Farm~Time for OCC. Our hostess this month is Laurie Schmidlin and boy does she have some awesome challenges lined up for us!!! For this week, Laurie is challenging us to an Inspiration Challenge. All you have to do is pick your favorite embellishment (ribbon, hardware, charms, flowers, etc.) and create your whole card around it! How easy is that?!?!?
We also have new addition to our team ~ please join me in welcoming Lori Boyd! Lori is so talented and will be a fantastic addition to our team so be sure to stop by her blog. And we also have a special guest designer Gabriela Divine - Gabi with an Eye.

Easy enough, where do I start...... This sweet Anya stamp inspires me but it's not an embellishment. I love my punches and I got a new one. I went to Michael's to get that awesome Martha Stewart heart border punch that everyone is using, but alas, my Mike's doesn't have it. My sweet friend Dawn offer to get me one from her Michael's, but those babies are expensive enough without having to pay shipping. Thanks for the offer Dawn, you are so sweet. ........ anyway I ended up buying this cute Martha Stewart heart punch, and I love it.

See what the other gals used for their favorite embellishment,
Amy, Dawn, Jackie, Jennifer, Kim, Laurie, Lori, Lynda, Julee and Silke.

I love this sweet Anya, I'm so in love with these stamps, they are so fun to color and paper piece. Check out Club Anya!!!

Happy Stampin'

Really like the non-traditional use of colors for this valentine. While I am not a big fan of the 'cutsie' images, you did a great job with this sweetie.
