Sweet Inspiration...

 Welcome to another fantastic Inspiration Tuesday with By LORi Designs!  My card for you today features the sweet sweet Puddle Jumper Penny!  Love her!

 As much I love the CAS style I love changing things up a bit too.  I used the current sketch over at The Deconstructed Sketch Blog.    I love sketch challenges as it takes all the guess work out for me.  Other than colouring (on detailed images) thats the part I spend most of my time fussing over.....the layout.  If its already done for me then I can put my own little spin on it and *bam* its done!  (did I mention my middle name is Emeril?...lol).  Although that probably makes me a lazy crafter, I'd rather be colourin' up my next image instead of spending hours fussing until I like it...'sigh'...Plus I have a TON of embellishments that have been gettin' no love lately and I've promised myself that I have to start using the buckets of twine, buttons, pearls, charms, doilies, brads, etc...i.e. I've had those metal heart brads (bottom left of my card) for about 9 years now...seriously...pathetic, I know...I think A&E needs a  new show called Crafty Hoarders...I could totally be on it! 

K, tangent over.  Lets move on...I've also made this card for the current BLD ChallengeHearts - check out the Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous inspiration pic and play along for your chance to win a free digi!

I'm also playing along with the sweet girls over at The Pink Elephant!  The challenge is to use 'Print' in your project!  The dp i used all has a very faint vintage looking print...its there..I promise!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you enjoy your week!

  1. So sweet! I'm loving that twiney, tulley, charmy corner you got going on there.

  2. Very pretty Krista! I love the deep purples and your gorgeous lock and key embellishment! Thanks for joining us for this week's sketch!

  3. Awwwwwwwww! This is ABSOLUTELY adorable...love love love it and WISH I could learn to color like you! WOW!! :)

  4. Gorgeous - and I think there is a market out there in TV Land for crafting hoarders. I like to buy them and imagine myself using them, then I imagine the embellishment no longer being in my drawer waiting for me and I panic -- and don't use it! I've got to really like somebody to use my snazzy embellishments and bling! Good for you to try and break the habit -- your card is gorgeous!
