So much inspiration everywhere.....

I am currently taking part  in another online card class run by Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire - Kickstart, all about getting inspiration for creating from just about anywhere really.  It has really helped me to get focussed, organise my supplies (I am not lucky enough to have a craft room per se....but my kids are good with eating on the couch so it works), look for inspiration and to also actually stop procrastinating and just do it. 

For me I find these classes terribly inspiring, but also I must say that sometimes having a few craft projects on the go at a time can help.  At the moment I have cardmaking (obviously), I am making a quilt for a Christmas gift, an off the page album of my 40th (eek), and now I also want to get started on some smaller gifts for Christmas and the end of year.  I know it sounds hectic, but along with eating on the couch the kids are good with finding their washing in the baskets so I save time there too!  But I do find that the more you do, the more you actually get done?  So for good measure I have signed up for a 3km fun run that I need to find training time for.  Let me tell you now it is unlikely I will be blogging about that one!

Anyway the good folks at Simon says Stamp are running a great event called Stamptember and I happily joined in by placing a nice big order with them.  Unfortunately I haven't received it yet as it does have a way to travel, but I have certainly been getting busy with all the inspiration from the card class.  Since they are asking to see what everyone has been creating this month I thought I would link it back to their blog to share.  So whilst it isn't an "inky" type of card, I certainly was covered in glitter.

The card below is inspired by Kristina Werner's card where she used DSP on an angle to create a really great background.  So I thought about it and did something similar for my card, however instead of using DSP I used different types of card stock with textures and bling.  The recipient of this card is certainly a "bling" kind of girl, so hopefully she will love it.  I am super pleased with it if I can say that without sounding arrogant, but I am!

thanks for dropping by,
