Inspiration at Target


I went to Target yesterday and while I was browsing I came across a comforter that immediately made me want to stamp! I loved the color combo so much that I quickly jotted down the colors on some scratch paper so that I wouldn't forget them by the time I had a minute to stamp. Well, I didn't forget. In fact I obsessed about the card until I had time at 10 pm to make it. So here it is! For the base of the card I stamped the Paisley background in Chocolate Chip onto white. I then added a strip of Ruby Red with a thin layer of Gable Green to one side. I stamped the large flower from Office Accoutrement with Tempting Turquoise onto white and cut it out. I ran chocolate ribbon around the card and added a bit of turquoise to it as well. The flower is on dimensionals and has a button from the Earth Elements container. I love the way the card turned out with the same feel as the comforter. These are colors that I would have never put together if I hadn't been inspired at Target.

Last night I took the kids to the mall for some new clothes. This is not my favorite activity! And we didn't finish so we'll be back at it tonight to get shoes, some more shorts and t-shirts and maybe bathing suits, too. My credit card company loves me!! LOL Clothing four kids is not cheap! And my friend, Beckie (Ladystamper) had six! She is Superwoman, though. Love you, Beckie!
