Hello crafty friends! Welcome to a new week at IBS Inspiration Challenge! Today we have a photo inspiration for you to try!

We are still looking for some crafty ladies who would like to join our team. Please Click Here to read all about our Design Team Call! Our Deadline is Dec. 29th.

This weekend the girls and I will be doing our Christmas baking! We are so excited. I don’t have any cards to share but will be close to the computer to answer any questions on email or our Facebook page.

Here is our IBSIC photo…


So whatcha think?? A challenging photo but the design team have created the most amazing cards this week from this photo.

Here’s my card…

Inspired by Stamping Winter Wonderland

I used 4 different Inspired by Stampings sets with today’s “Noel” card. These are the Christmas Greetings, Winter Wonderland, Elegant Christmas Sentiments and Sweet Aviary sets.

Inspired by Stamping Sweet Aviary

I stamped my images and then cut it out with an SB die. I also used some Glitter Paper and embossed the top half with an embossed folder both from SU!. A perfect bow was added with the Noel tag.


Personal Note: Here is a photo of a moth that was on our living room wall last evening. So sorry for the yucky quality but it was dark out. I hope you enjoy. :0)

Have a lovely holiday weekend!

    Your card is beautiful Jo and the moth is awesome. I’ll bet it’s some kind of cat moth, like leopard, or tiger. xoxo

    ohhhh what a pretty inspirational photo! Love the red you used for your bird and the fun glittery bottom! And what a beautiful moth, I don’t often think of them as pretty but that one sure is.

      Thanks Lisa. When I saw the moth, I knew I had to share with everyone. Such a cool looking one. I ended up catching it with my hands and letting it outside. So beautiful. Hugs, Joanna
