I had to try that!



This week for Make It Monday the challenge is to find inspiration from one of the projects presented during Papertrey Ink's New Release that made me say "I have to try that!" : )   I am always inspired by the talented Danielle Flanders.  Here is Danielle's card:



She used the new What the Doodle: Apple set that will be released that I'm pretty sure I NEED! : )



Isn't this chair amazing!? I loved this inspiration photo and these colors!! so I adapted my colors slightly from Danielle's card so I could enter my card in The Challenge too : )





Don't forget there is still time to play along at Seize the Birthday where the theme is Floral or if you are not a floral person then anything goes! just join us we love seeing you in the STB gallery : )

Three great challenges and three great galleries busting with inspiring cards that will make YOU say "I have to try that! : ) I hope you will join both of these fun challenges.

By the way! thank you to everyone for your outstanding support!!



I did make it through the bathrooms on the Spring Cleaning check list!  I'm no Drama Queen! I'm not much of a Drama Queen! but that job wore me out.  I will say, though, sometimes when no one is looking I HUG my Shark Electric Steam Mop.  I love that thing! I think it is the best housekeeping tool ever made : )

Ok off I go! it's shopping in the "big city" for me today.  Thank you for stopping by  I hope you have a wonderful day doing something Inky! : )

I just have to say the more I looked at the critter the more I would swear he was breathing! Just had to say.
I love your card. It is adorable. I love the colors and how it looks like it is a tag that is taking center stage. Super job.
