Insiped by Pinterest

Hello and a Happy Saturday to you!  I hope that you are having a great weekend so far!  Last Saturday I shared about how I woke up to find my daughter cutting up my cardstock and wanting to keep it all, well yesterday I woke up to her quite upset she had accidentally pulled down my standing drawer bin that's full of my crafty items!  A lot of my papers and random crafty items were all over the floor! She was scared that I was upset but really I don't want her to get hurt!  She was in the drawers digging and later asking me if she could have this?  She is going through my stash my friends!  Luckily I do have a lot of things that I don't use anymore.

I am here a bit late with my Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday post.  We had a garage sale today and we have been so busy getting ready for it.  I am so glad that it's over!  We did better than we thought so that is really nice!  This week our sponsor is May Arts!  I love May Arts ribbon as I am sure many of you do too!  >



Our challenge this week is Etsy or Pinterest Inspired!  I don't have a Pinterest account but I went to look on there and found an inspirational photo.  I've really been feeling at a loss for crafting lately and my mojo just hasn't been there.  But when I found this photo that I really liked it all just came together.  I was inspired, I wanted to create and my idea came so quick!  Here is what got me back:

  I love the colors, I love the cleanness and I was inspired to make this:


I used all the colors but left out the beige!  I stamped the stem and the flower with pigment inks and than clear embossed them and put a doily behind it.  Added some green ruffled ribbon as "grass" it was harder to ruffle it with a thinner ribbon I found!  After no mojo lately I am really pleased with this card.  And now understanding why everyone loves Pinterst so much!

I really hope you will join us this week and play!  Our Top Hoot will win a May Arts prize pack!  And to make it even more fun for you a random winner wins a Wee Memories prize!  Please check out the Wee Memories blog for more info and to see the talented Design Team's creations!

Glad this photo inspired you Anita... because this is a superb card. Your "grass" is stunning.. I don't know how you have the patience to ruffle your ribbon like that...

Very sweet! Love the colors you've captured from the photo inspiration, so beautiful!! I've heard of Pinterest but I think I'm purposely avoiding it, or else I will be online way too much...what am I saying, I'm already on line way too much! ;)
