Hello dear friends and blog followers hope the start of your week has gone well! We have a new challenge for you this week at Addicted to Stamps and More - it's a photo inspiration challenge (see above). The photo inspiration challenge will now be part of our regular monthly challenges at ATS&M - we think you're going to like it!
The fun thing about a photo inspiration challenge is that there are really no rules because you go with whatever it is about the photo that inspires you to make your creation to enter in the challenge. It can be a part of the photo itself (the chair, the ocean, the beach, the drink, the hat), it can be a color or colors in the photo that inspired you (the blues, orange, browns, etc), it can be something else such as the texture of the hat for example (straw) or the idea that this evokes for you such as drinks with friends, relaxing, vacation, etc. Whatever inspires you is what we want to see. It would be fun for us when we visit to read what it is that inspired you (if it isn't obvious) and why.
Here's my card - my inspiration was the drink and the water:
My mind immediately went to the idea of a gathering of myself and my friends enjoying some "foofoo" drinks (for those of you who don't know what that is - it would be fancy cocktails) and lots of laughs. It would be especially wonderful if that were to take place by a beach or pool and with lots of sunshine. It's been a long time since I've been able to enjoy that with some of my friends - maybe its about time to contact them and see what we can do?!
Here's the inside (quite simple really):
What has inspired you this week? I can't wait to see what you come up with. Heather Ellis is the sponsor this week for the photo inspiration challenge at ATS&M. You can win a fabulous prize from her by playing along with us this week. The other ladies on the DT have come up with some wonderful ideas and projects to share with you as well. Please go visit them too.
Off I go now to dream some more about warm sunshine and a cold drink with my pals. Well... probably more realistically to see if that last load of laundry is ready to be moved to the dryer or folded - but a girl can dream - right?! Til next time... hugs and happy crafting! D
