inspired by Design*Sponge


I love the color yellow, it is such a happy color. I don't seem to use it much in my card designs though...hmm...why is that? Perhaps because I tend to use the same colors over and over again? LOL This color combo is definitely out of my comfort zone but I saw this on Design*Sponge and it reminded me of the Stampin' up Riot of Petals.

That is what I love about creativity...inspiration is

e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e!

I can't believe that I discovered google reader just this year. Blurfing is such a guilty pleasure of mine...so much to see...I don't just have stamping...scrapbooking...crafty blogs to look at...I have a ton of design blogs...wedding blogs {no, I'm not getting married but man, there is serious inspiration in those blogs}...I even have a blog that is called cakewrecks...that one is hilarious! It is typically filled with cake typos. I just told my friend {hi p!} that she should send in a picture of her son's birthday cake. It had:

Happy Birthday Copper!

Hmmm....yes, his name is Cooper...lol.

I'd love for you to share your non-crafty blogs that you follow...I'm always up for adding more to my reader :)

  11. What is this Google Reader? You know I'm such a technoilliterate! (I made that up!)

    The card is so very cool, the colors really pop! I don't use yellow, either. Hmm. What's that all about?
