E.A.D Designs Inspired by Blog Hop with KIM HUGHES!

It's a GOOD day...today is the E.A.D Designs Blog Hop!
{it officially starts at 10 am EST}
This isn't just 'any' blog hop...this is the

Inspired by
"Go to Gal"
Blog Hop
with
Kim Hughes!


You should have hopped over here from the fabbie Jenn's blog: 


If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the E.A.D Designs blog!

So the E.A.D Design team got to pick from 2 of Kim's card and whip something together using it as an inspiration...I picked this whimsical number:


I was inspired by:

the stitching
the scallops
the twine
the image design

hmm....reader's digest version...the entire card had me inspired:)

Before I get to my card I wanted to let you know that someone has the chance to WIN the E.A.D Designs October Steal!!  You have to leave a comment on all the blogs that are a part of today's hop along with the E.A.D Designs blog...a random name will be picked!


This is how I was inspired by Kim's card...

I used some new fabbie stickerz:


&


My card turned out to be a kind of "these are a few of my favorite things"...aha, is that song stuck in your head now?!  LOL...you all know my love of coffee...did you know that I typically always have my iPod touch with me at home?  I even manage to do some heavy duty blurfing on that little thing...

I used my copics to color in some of the images...easy smeasy and adds a nice pop of color...the button is a Jane Fimo fun one:)

The scallops are on the front and back panel...I 'may' have woken up my boy around 5 a.m. on Sunday morning while constructing this little card...oops...darn border punch :)  I managed to do the sewing on the card because I forced the heater to pop on...so while it was going, I quickly did my stitching...muwahahaha....

Just a quick reminder that the Flashback Friday 3.0 is still going strong...

Okay, now it is time for you to hop over to Super Stephanie's blog:
