Feeling inspired

Ssssssshhhhh.  If I just sneak back into blogland, maybe no one will notice that I've been missing for a little while (I know .... again!!)!!   So life has been pretty busy and what little spare time I've had I have managed to keep creating, just not photographing and loading it up here.  However lately I've been inspired by the Make it Monday videos over at Nichole Heady's blog for Papertrey Ink.  I've had a go at making my own Washi tape and also making my own thick chipboard accents.

This week the technique is layered mats and frames.  I had a great time cracking out my PTI supplies and making this card:

Now all I need to do is find a book to send to a friend so I can send them this card!

Supplies used:
Card - pure poppy. true black (PTI)
Patterned paper - beautiful blooms (PTI)
Ink - pure poppy, fresh snow, true black (PTI)
 Dies - mat stack 3, limitless layers 1 3/4" (PTI)
Border punch - double scallop edger punch (Martha Stewart)
Ribbon & twine - The Ribbon Girl 

I was also inspired by the challenge over at one of my favourite blogs:
A Passion for Papertrey - sensational silhouettes

So I was tempted to post so much more tonight but let's start slowly!!

Thank you to anyone that might pop by.

Love Ginger

A great card to accompany a book present. I love reading too. The silhouette image works so well as you can imagine it is anyone enjoying reading outside.
