Inspiration

Hi all!

Hope you're having a good Monday so far. I don't have to work until this evening, so I'm enjoying my day, trying to get some cards made. On Saturday, I was looking through the cards that I have in my "favorites" file over on Flickr. One of my favorite, all-time stampers is Sue McRae. She's known as Stampin' Sue in the Flickr group and she makes some of the most amazing cards! If you haven't looked through her photostream, you should! Believe me, you don't want to miss it!

So One of my favorite cards from Sue is this one here. I love the way she embossed the Flower Box from Hero Arts! The whole card is just so pretty! So I decided to give it a try. I pretty much cased Sue's card. Just used darker, bolder colors and a different sentiment. It's hard to see in the photo but it says, "You make my heart happy." It's from this set here and I use it often.



I'm glad you stopped by! Have a nice Monday!
