Sisterhood Sunday Challenge~SS10



It's time for another Sisterhood Sunday challenge and a chance for you to win one of Rubbernecker's terrific stamps!  All of you have to do to play along in our challenge this week is to create a card using your Rubbernecker images and link it to our Stampin' Sisterhood Blog for a chance to be randomly drawn as the winner!  When uploading to an online gallery use the keyword SS10. You can get all the details and see the other designs of my Stampin' Sisters have created for you here!

For our Sisterhood Sunday Challenge this week, we were given this inspiration photo:

I was so inspired by the colors and the hearts.  The thing about inspiration is you never know where it might take you!   Usually I do scrap pages for everybody else, but I decided to create a scrap book of the little things that make me happy along the road of life for when I need a zen moment or two~LOL.  This is where it took me......

Living in Alberta makes you long for spring and the colors in the garden, the colors in the inspiration photo took me straight to my garden.  So I had to use this beautiful Fairy with Lilies SKU: 1250 SO!! I colored her up with Copics and added some stardust stickles to her wings and framed her using the largest die from the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles.  Here is  a close up of her, isn't she just gorgeous!!

This was a quick and simple page to make.   Hope you join us over at the Stampin' Sisterhood Blog with your creation, we would love to have you play along!  Can't wait to see your creations!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a most fabulous day everyone!!
