Inspiration Photo @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings all :) 
It is time again for a new challenge at 

This week the challenge is an...
Inspirational Photo
Wowzers! Can you say bright and colorful! 
The pinks, blues and the green caught my eye in this shot 
along with the hint of purple so with a shabby beautiful style, 
that is where I headed this week :)




Honestly, while the inspiration photo is just gorgeous, I seriously thought Mojo and I were going to struggle to pull something together.  Surprisingly though, once I sat down at my desk and cleared my head, my fingers just kind of got busy creating.  Not sure how I managed it, but I resisted my urge to do some sewing and I love the finished result, I seriously doubt if I could pull these colors off every week though ;)

As always the girls and I would love if you played along with us at
The challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.

I look forward to seeing you there! 
Thanks for dropping in to see me today :)

Oh your take on the challenge is beautiful. And it's not a challenge if it doesn't make you do something that you feel you've 'pulled off'. The colours look amazing don't they.
