Garden Party for Sept. 23

gpsept23photoIts Tuesday, Garden Party Day - time for another inspiration challenge using a magazine clipping plucked from the inspiration shoe box. If you remember, This was the inspiration photo from last week.

I'm thrilled to say not one but two people played along! How exciting!

First there is Beth from Sun Flowers and Dragonflies. You can see her simply adorable card HERE. Is it not too cute for words?

Then there is Debbie from Welcome To The Shoe Closet with her beautiful card HERE. Such amazing coloring!

Thanks so much ladies for playing!

And here is my entry. gpsept23card I've had this stamp for a while and it really need to see some ink. Its called Birdhouses. I really love this artist's work and I have a lot of her stamps in the store. She has a wonderful stylized look.

The image is colored with my Copics - and it was mighty fun to color too! It seems more summer than fall to me though!

 

 

 

Here is the photo for next week - its a challenge. gpsept30photo Interesting chairs huh?  Although I don't know if they would look quite the same in my house.  How do you get peanut butter and poster paint off clear acrylic anyway?...

If you would like to play along, just comment on this post with link to your creation and I'll highlight your entry next week.

Foiled again! Ugh!!! And I loved last week's pic, and so wanted to play! One of these days....
Great card - totally cheery with the sunflowers!

I really like your card, but I really love the textured bits. What is that? A Cuttlebug folder? If so, which one?

Interesting GP selection. I'd love to alcohol ink those chairs, though I'd imagine I'd need a lot of ink!
