Hello sweet friends! How are you all doing?? My little ones went back to school this week. They are all settled in and happy with their new teachers. Which has left me with lots of quite time, so I’ve been drawing lots of new stamp sets for the next few months. πŸ™‚

We have a new challenge at IBSIC this week! Plus, ALL our new designers played along with us as well! May I just say, their designs are AMAZING!! Truly Stunning and Inspirational! Click Here to have a peek!

Plus!!!! We have blog candy!! One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift card to the Inspired by Stamping Store.

Here is this week’s inspiration photo…

IBSIC-#44

And here is my card…

Inspired by Stamping

Lately, with Inspired By Stamping growing, I am finding it harder and harder to sit down and create a card. It is amazing to me the thing that I love most, I am doing less and less of each week. And at the same time, drawing and designing has become a new passion for me as well. I am constantly sketching and bringing my sketch book with me everywhere. Now I guess it is time to find a happy medium. Do you have that in your life too???

My card is pretty simple today using the Big Treasures and some IBS crochet trim. Next week, it’s my turn for the WHW tutorial and I am going to share with you how to tie this bow on my card.

I hope you stop by and visit our amazing designers this week over at IBSIC! Please welcome them by leaving them a comment! We look forward to seeing all your creations this week!

Hugs to each of you! Have a lovely weekend!

    So beautiful! Love the rose panel and that bow is so lovely! I understand striving for balance in life…even with things we love to do it can be hard sometimes. For me what helps the most is watching carefully for things I fill up my time with that aren’t really productive because they take away from the time I can have to do what I really enjoy! Anyway…I am with you on it:) Big hugs….
