For Your Inspiration Challenge #37


I can't belive how quickly time has passed since I last posted an FYI project.  We took a break for the last few months so that my designers could get their kiddos ready to go back to school, and so they could enjoy the holidays with their families.  It's the beginning of the year, and things are back on schedule with our challenges being posted on the first and third Thursday's of the month.  We will still be picking a favorite for each challenge, and showcasing their projects on the FYI blog.  Not too much has changed.  So, are you ready to play along with us again?  :)

Here is the inspiration photo for our first challenge of the year.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE

And here is my card, based on the photo.

This is the first card I made, after being on hiatus from crafting, for so long.  I'm not sure I totally dig it, but I do like it a little.  Unfortunately, with starting my new job, I wasn't able to pull together another card before today.  I guess it is kinda cute. lol  I'm going to enter this into the following challenges.

Kaboodle Doodles #152 - Anything Goes
Mojo Monday #264 - Sketch (my loose interpretation of it)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Use It Tuesday #46 - 2013 (I need tons of Thank You's, the stamps and border punch on this card are at least six months old)
Heck of a Challenge January Challenge - Thank You
Natalie & Amy's January Challenge - Your Favorite Things (Nesties, Distress Inks, Paper Flowers)

Anyway, I do hope you'll head over to see what my Lovelies have created for you today.  Their projects are always so beautiful.  I'm sure you'll love my two new designers as well!

Have a great day!
