Inspired By #93 ... gather

 
I received a ton of inspiration from Laurel's photo this week: the texture, the leaves, the colors, that big word - the black & white buffalo plaid?  See if you can find it...
 
 
In fact, I was inspired enough to make a second helping... once isn't enough for that gorgeous Mondo Oak and dies!
 
 
We sure hope to inspire YOU to play along with IB93 this week!!

Pillow on the right of the photo. I'd say you covered all the elements in it beautifully. Inspiration must have been flowing from your fingers.

Laurel's inspiration hit you right in your wheel house of color- and you ran with it. Fabulous completely and totally Michele cards and I love them.

Gorgeous cards, Michele. I love the different backgrounds you used - the stitches have a windy feel. Love the details of the touches of plaid, twine and gold.

I love how the simplicity of the colors make this gorgeous leaf a big hit, Michele! That bit of buffalo plaid adds a fun element!

How creative are you and fabulous how you have interpreted the photo x. Love the contemporary black and white check acorn and the inspirational striking sentiment. Marvellous second card too and with an acorn and the 'mighty' sentiment....what a perfect combination x. Loving these Michele x

Ok, I know I've said many times before, but I have to say again that you're fantastic at interpreting IB photos, Michele. Not only the way you use elements in the photo on your card, but your whole card has a story and I don't feel like you made the card "based on the photo". (I hope you understand what I mean.)
I especially love the first card with the modern acorn.

Plaid acorn? Now don't that beat all! (said in my best Andy Griffith voice)
