Inspired by Pinterest 1

Happy Thursday everyone and thanks for stopping by! 

Since I am doing all this "pinning" on pinterest, I thought it's about time I actually create things inspired by pinterest. So today is my first official "Pinterest Inspired" post, and hopefully I will do this on a regular basis. If there is anyone out there wanting to play along with me being inspired by pinterest, then I'd love to see what you have made, including a link in your post to what inspired you on pinterest.


Above is my creation inspired by a beautiful card I pinned some time ago. I used a beautiful puppy digistamp from Lee Holland. I was lucky enough to catch this one as a freebie off  Lee's Facebook page. It was a 24 hour freebie, and might now be available to purchase in Lee's Etsy store (see Lee Holland's blog sidebar). 

It's been colored using Copic Markers. I fussy cut it out, adhered it to my card using pop up dots. 

This is the card that inspired me. Isn't it beautiful?

I kept the same layout, but instead of a snowman I used the cute puppy. Of course I don't have that die/ frame, so I used my double scallop square doily die from Whimsy Stamps instead. I am going to need a few winter birthday cards, so I kept the birthday theme on my card. The card needed something on the top edge so I added some ribbon.

I would love to play along in a few challenges:

 Crafty Ribbons -  Anything Goes with Ribbon 
Crafty Creations - Dies/punches
Everybody-Art-Challenge  Card For A Boy
 4 Krafty Girlz Anything Goes
 
I would love to come see your pinterest inspired projects, so I am including inlinkz below.
 Before linking please be sure that your post includes a link to your pinterest inspiration piece. 

Have a fabulous day everyone!!

What a fabulous idea! I love Pinterest, and probably spend more internet time there than another website now. I've also received so much more activity on my blog as a result of Pinterest, to which I'm exceedingly grateful. Your card is so pretty, and I love the original card too.
