Some Inspiration....

Holy blog batman!  It's day three here at Fourth House on the Right and I'm having a blast!  I'm walking around with a big ole grin on my face from the sweet comments you all have left!  I finished up the project for the girls' fall parties, I'll post pics tomorrow, and I got my new sewing machine out of the box.  Um, I have a problem when it comes to things like sewing machines.  I'm really bad with directions, and by that I mean I don't read them.  I like to think I already know how they work and the directions are there as more of a backup.  Big mistake with a sewing machine.  Haha.  It's still a work in progress, at this point.  I'll keep you posted.  No pun intended. 

For today's card, I thought I would post a picture of my inspiration.  I was flipping through Country Living Magazine and came across this picture.  I just loved the colors and thought they would make a great card.  I do this quite a bit when I'm going through magazines and I'll tear the page out of the magazine and keep it in a stack on a shelf in my craft room.  Then when I need some inspiration, I'll flip through the stack.

 Here's the card that was born out of the inspiration of the above photo...

I love the way this card turned out.  It makes me happy just looking at it!  I hope you have a fabulous Thursday!  So close to the weekend...

  3. That is a beautiful card.
    I still smile everytime I get a comment. I have been blogging since Jan 1, 2010.
    Me and sewing machines have a problem as well. I even bought a pricey one and still it doesn't want to fully co operate.
    There goes my dream of being a quilter, but I am in denial LOL.

  4. very pretty card! I love how you used the different colored inks on the darker background.
