Inspired By All The Little Things #80

Hello hello! 

I'm back again with another "Inspired By All the Little Things" guest post.

This is honestly such a fun challenge because there are so many things to be inspired by in the images each time. You can take one thing and run with it, or do what I did in this case and incorporate as much goodness from the original picture as you can into your card!

Here is the most recent challenge image:

Isn't it gorgeous?!
Can you see all the ways I was inspired? That birdcage, the wings, the gold "hello," the flowers, the colors, and the barnwood backdrop. Phewww. I think I truly was inspired by ALL the little things:)

I hope you'll play along with us for challenge #80 at Inspired By All The Little Things! Create a project and link it up so we can all see what inspires YOU! You have until Thursday March 1 to link your card. 

Many thanks to Veronica for inviting me to be February's guest designer. I am now a regular fan of this fun challenge:)

Thanks for stopping by,

St. Valentine's Day

Hello all you lovers out there...Lovers of people, lovers of books, lovers of animals, lovers of the great outdoors, or even just lovers of chocolate...Happy St. Valentine's Day! 

I know this is a silly Hallmark holiday, but I've been making Valentines since I could hold a crayon, so we always celebrate our love for each other in my house!

These quick cards went out to a few friends this week. Hedgehugs stamps and dies by Lawn Fawn, striped paper by MFT, polka dot paper and banner dies by PTI. 

These two small lunchbox notes went to school and work (respectively) with my youngest son and my fiance. Otterly in Love stamps by MFT.

This card for my mom was a case of Melissa Phillips' card here. Sentiment stamp from Cupid's Arrow by Cas-ual Fridays Stamps. Love die and background stamps by PTI. Patterned paper by MFT. 

This card went out to my BFF and is a case of Cherion Brandon. All stamps and dies from Love Notes by Neat And Tangled. 

And just because I couldn't let my kiddos and sweetheart go off to school and work without SOME sort of sweet treat, I whipped up these mini brownie bites with real strawberry frosting. Here is the recipe I use for the ABSOLUTE BEST strawberry frosting ever: recipe for strawberry frosting

Hope your St. Valentine's Day is a sweet one:)

Inspired by All the Little Things #79

I was asked by the incredible Veronica Z to be the guest designer over at Inspired By All The Little Things challenge blog!

This is the sweet image I was given to find inspiration:

I think it's pretty obvious where I pulled the inspiration from:) There is something about old bicycles that just warms my heart. Pun intended!
I also liked that red polka dot package with the green bow, and the word "love" on the white pillow. 

Bicycle, sentiment, teeny hearts, and word bubble stamps from Wilson Designs Ride Away With Me set. Don't you just love that tandem bicycle?
Big "love" word die is from Neat & Tangled, Heart dies are from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, cardstock and patterned paper from PTI.  

What inspires YOU about that image above? Why not join in and play along with this challenge!
