Merry Snowflakes...Inkspirational Challenge #121~Photo Inspiration

Hello!

Are you ready for a new challenge? Excellent!  Check out what we have to tempt your craft-buds this time at Inspirational Challenge #121:

Aren't these the coolest fireworks EVER?  Actually, the coolest fireworks I've seen are those in Disneyland, from a trip I took mega-years ago.  Need to convince my husband to head that direction at some point (I am such a kid at heart; Pirates of the Caribbean calling my name); finding a bike race in the vicinity would certainly help my cause *grin*

As much as I'm smitten with this sparkling delight, figuring out what to create was a major challenge, especially since I have Christmas on my mind...and for good reason. I am so far behind it's not. even. funny!  Yeesh!  As a result, I decided to go ultra really completely simple, drawing inspiration from a central, 'explosions-framed' image....Like this....


An SU stamp, distress inked with Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick, huffed upon, and stamped.  Done!  Love the infusion of snowflakes; a blizzard of pretty....

For some dazzling inspiration, please head over to see what our talented guest designer, Jenny, and the rest of my team have come up with:

  8. Well, hello there stranger! Been MIA since I got back from our LH adventure (another FUN TIME) because my computer...actually MTS...has caused me total grief!!! No posts, no comments, only one or two e-mails...and they can't figure out why! Access to the blogs has just starting working more often than not today, so hopefully it means the rest of the 'missing features' will show up too!

    Took a GREAT scroll through all that I have missed!!! WOW - you've been very, very busy! Your creations are INCREDIBLE!!! The tags are so stinkin' cute and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the card with the purple and grey heart and leaves!

    Keeping my fingers crossed that the 'puter' issues get better cuz I am ready to fire MTS!!! Sorry again pal for being MIA!
