Inspired by......................

Hi there,

This card was inspired by so many people & for all that is such a simple card (for me).  As I write this I have an additional five windows open all ready for me to get the links for you :).  But before all that, I must admit I had intended to enter it into a challenge (one of the links) but my lovely dh used up all our downloads so that put the brakes on that idea.  Luckily we now have up graded so fingers crossed that wont happen again.

Ok are you ready for the links?  Well firstly I was inspired by the 90 minute scramble here, then by Hannah's cards here & here, then I used this sketch challenge here (where I missed out on entering) & finally I was also inspired by Lucy's challenge here.

So after all that inspiration this is my  card.  I am really pleased with it, every bit of it (except the card base) have come from my scrap bucket.  I've finally decided what my New Year's Reso is, I'm not using any more paper until I've used 80% of the scraps in my bucket. 

Thanks for popping in & have a great week xoxoxoxo

Your card turned out so pretty. I think we must think alike because I have a hard time with simply card layouts too. Can't wait to see more of your cards. - Carrie

Hi, Paula! Gorgeous card! And I share your New Year's resolution! I am not buying any more paper until I get rid of some that I already own! ♥
