In Preparation For The 300 Weeks Of Inspiration Challenge

Monday, January 30, 2017

Good Morning!
This Friday will mark the 300th week of my Friday Inspiration File Pinterest board , blog feature and Instagram posts.  I have been adding my favorites {of YOUR creations} weekly for 6 years!  It all started as a way to highlight your work so that in the vast sea of blogs amazing projects and designers wouldn't be overlooked.  

Every 100 weeks I have hosted a challenge and given away prizes as a fun way to celebrate YOU and all of your amazing inspiration.  This Friday will be the 300 Weeks Of Inspiration Challenge.  I will ask you to go into the Friday Inspiration File and find a project to CASE or simply use as inspiration for a project you create.  Share your project and link it up here and you will be entered to win a $30 GC to your favorite stamp store {one winner}!
More details on the actual challenge post this Friday 2/3/17 so come back then!

Today I thought I'd get us started by doing just that....
My card today was heavily inspired by Wendy Price from the blog Paper, Ink and Smiles.  Her THANKS card from Week #293 caught my eye with those cute critters peeking out from the die cut 'thanks', so cute!  I knew I had the just the supplies to recreate the look.  I used WP9 Whimsy Alpha Dies and Winter Pals.

I hope this gives you a head start thinking about which project you'd like to use as inspiration for the challenge on Friday 2/3/17
