Pretty much all of my posts are challenge-related but in my never ending quest to use up stash and reduce the number of NBUS products I'm trying to make a few cards with each stamp set/die/product. I used to heavily rely on challenges to get my mojo going but I've been doing pretty well lately at making cards just for the heck of it. I realize there is nothing groundbreaking about this but I don't do it often because usually as soon as I finish one card I want to move on to some other shiny new thing. So I'm going to try this out for a while and see how it goes.
I love this Lil' Inker Designs reindeer especially as you can make him look sweet or naughty - yay for versatility! For the first card I gave him a little ribbon scarf inspired by these cards from Savannah O'Gwynn. Savannah's style couldn't be more different from mine but I LOVE it! It's fun and whimsical and feels so much more relaxed than mine. I love that about this community - how inspiration comes from so many amazingly different people and styles. The stitched and pierced rectangles, the swirly background and the Merry Christmas die are all Lil' Inker Designs.
