Congrats Kara!


Kara from K and R Designs is celebrating 200 weeks of inspiration that she calls her Inspiration Files. You can see more about that here. What a wonderful thing to do at the end of each week, pinning some beautiful creations for inspiration on another day. And always a place to be amazed. Kara is having a challenge where you look for a card in her Inspiration Files and make a card casing it or using it to be inspired by.
I took a peek at her Inspiration Files and oh me...so many incredible cards and I found one to case right away...love making coffee cards and Erin made a sweet card with these adorable little to go cups from Lawn Fawn.



I am also entering my card in the new challenge at Colour Me #53 - Monochromatic. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your week!

  3. I could spend days looking at all the cards in Karas' inspiration file!! I've enjoyed this challenge so much I've entered twice, was a great way to get my brain kick-started. You've created a wonderful CASE of Erin's card and it looks gorgeous in purple. Really like the twine and ribbon used together, never thought of doing that. Superb card!!!!
