Inspired by Justme:c to be Inkspirational!!



When one of the sweetest, most positive commenters in Blogland orders you  encourages you to submit, you submit!!

Thanks, Carol Mayne, for introducing me to this sensational challenge blog... I'm ashamed to say I hadn't visited before... remedied today!! 

Inkspirational Challenge #73 is one we can all embrace in the card-making world... who sends more notes than we do?  It is a joy to receive REAL cards - love, love, love it! 

Marika is the guest designer for this challenge.  When I saw her adorable little Purple Onion birdies, I couldn't resist a try with a little stamp I got before Christmas.  What do you think?  Who wouldn't love these little skaters speeding over the ice with a note?  I'd personally like them skating on my frozen pond!!

 
Thanks, c ,for the little push!

(sorry for this second take! I was so excited to see this card that my spelling became atrocious!)
Oh my, oh my, oh my...I was completely bowled over by your 'newer' card which showed up on my Feedly list first, and THEN, I see this "first" creation and WOW, WOW, WOW! Jaw-dropped, breath-taken-away awe! A sweet scene in every way, Michele: you've worked magic - MAGIC - with these bunnies, and the soft background, and oh-so-pretty tree! I have some brand-spanking new Purple Onion stamps (part of the mobile crafting unit my husband packed for me), and now you've sparked me to bring them out for a play. LOVE your card...and beyond thrilled that you 'listened' to my...ummm..orders *grin*...and came over to Ink to play! Thank you again for joining us! Hope you'll become a regular!
Hugs galore, awesome Michele!
